    When I follow this path C: >Prog Files >Common Files >Microsoft Shared >Stationery, I see that there are two photos in it (see 1st att)that I would like to add as a background when emailing family members. But as the second att shows they do not appear in the Stationery dialogue box & when I Browse to the Desktop where there are also copies of the photos, only folders appear. I also note (3rd att) that when I do a search for the Stationery folder, it unearths no less than 4 folders. What is the path of the Folder shown in the 2nd att please & can I paste photos into it? Regards Dave...

    ps When this post was uploaded I noticed that the attachments appear in reverse order to how they were uploaded [321 rather than 123]which conflicts with my explanation; so I tried to edit it but could not, how does one do this please?

    Pictures as such cannot be used as stationery. Stationery files are HTML files. You can create a HTML page that contains a picture, and use that as e-mail stationery.

    To find out the path of the Stationery folder in the middle screenshot, click the dropdown arrow to the right of the word Stationery near the top of the dialog.

    To attach files in the correct order, select each one in the list of attachments and click Add to post.

    .....pps Hi Hans.....I know a lot of water has gone under the bridge since your last post in this thread but (seeing I had somehow copied a photo into a template in the past) I decided by sheer trial & error to experiment with email templates and discovered that if I capture a photo using "Faststone capture" (which saves a cropped photo as a Gif file) it can be imported to and used as a background for emails despite the implication in the "Stationery Setup wizard" that html & *,htm;* files must be used, see attachment. Just thought I would pass this on as by this means one can personalise emails with family pics e.g. (grandchildren) to use for communicating with friends / family. Cheers Dave.

    OK, thanks - might be useful to others (but please be careful with picture backgrounds - the increase the size of the e-mail and they may make it harder to read, especially for people who are 'visually challenged').
