    Stationery (2000)

    text<img src=/S/flags/Australia.gif border=0 alt=Australia width=30 height=18>

    I have been trying to create some new corporate stationery for use with Outlook 2000, but have had very little success. That is, until I was given this little handy hint.

    For some ungodly-Microsoft-knows-best reason, the functionality in Outlook Express for creating new stationery is far superior to that in Outlook2k. Once I was made aware of this little beauty, I could create my new stationery in a few simple steps, as it should be. It's really quite an elegant process and it astounds me that it isn't available in proper Outlook .

    I just though there must be other frustrated people out there. Hope this helps.

    Can you share with me how you used Outlook Express as Stationary?

    Sure thing. The beauty of this is that both Outlook and OE use a common source for their stationery. So creating it in OE makes it available to Outlook if you need it.

    Just go to ToolsOptionsSend and set the Mail Sending Format to HTML
    Then hit the Compose tab (in the same location). Under the Stationery area of the window click on Mail and Create New.

    After that it is a simple case of following instructions which you should have no trouble with if you've gotten this far.

    The critical part here (and this is not available when you try and create stationery in Outlook) is to set the margin so you don't end up with your emails all over your nice new stationery.

    I hope this helps.

    That was just tooooooo easy. I can't believe Microsoft has left Outlook deficient in that respect.

    Thanks so much for that, I really appreciate it.

    Cheers
