Show this dialog box for each new email. You can uncheck this option if you don't want to change the stationery frequently. When this option is unchecked, the PowerPlugs: Stationery dialog box will not appear when you create a new mail message. Instead your most recent stationery selection is automatically used for each subsequent new message. To turn this option back on after it has been unchecked, you can either click the Stationery... button on the Standard toolbar or select Stationery... from the Tools menu.

 Creating a New Message

Once you select a stationery and click Apply, Outlook opens a new message window. The text size, font, and color of the message body are formatted to coordinate with the graphics; simply start typing where it says "<Your message here>". When you're finished, click Send — that's really all there is to it!

PowerPlugs: Stationery is supported by nearly all of today's most popular email programs. To see if your message recipients will be able to view your stationery, please see our compatibility list.
