    Form letters (OE5.5)

    I can't seem to find anything in the OE help about how you create a form letter or standard e-mail or whatever you want to call it that you can summon, add an address to, and send. I tried save as .eml and then could not reach that file with the Open command. A finger pointed in the right direction (no funny business, now!) would probably be all I need. Just the search term or something. TYIA.

    You can approximate that using the Stationery feature. If you choose Message|New Message Using|Select Stationery, there's a wizard to start you off. You then can right-click the new .htm file and open it in your choice of editors to get the text in there. After using the stationery once, my test file added itself to the list so I didn't need to use the dialog. Not sure if there's a more convenient shortcut to this list.

    There is a short cut to that stationery list actualy: click the little down arrow to the right of the New Mail icon on the Toolbar.
    (I use OE 6 instead of 5.5, so mine says 'Create' instead of New Mail in the illustration.)

    I really ought to poke every drop-down arrow I see. You never know what kinds of goodies you'll find. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    OK, thanks! Sounds like it should do the job.
