    I recently had to reformat my HD. In the process, I lost a stationery (Dolphins) that I thought was on the Win98SE CD, but it apparently came from somewhere else. I've searched for it at Microsoft's site, but it's not there. Where can I find that stationery (picture of a sloop in full sail, with dolphins leaping out of the water in front of it)?

    Secondly, I downloaded what were supposed to be stationery files from a site. They came as .zip files. I extracted them, but the only file in the .zip files were .jpg files... no .htm files. It's my understanding that stationery only works if "paired"; one .jpg and one .htm file with the same name (why does OE need two files to present one stationery picture?). So, is it possible to convert the .jpg file to a .htm file? If so, how?

    There are probably thousands of stationery files on the net. Try using google to search.

    Example search:
    stationery dolphins "outlook Express"

    Yes, stationery needs the HTML/javascript/vbscript to "run." No, you can convert a picture into code. Stationery is sort of like a web page. Just like you can't arrange a web page with just a picture, you need the code to make it appear as you want it.

    There is nothing to prevent you from just imbedding the picture into an email and then adding text, if that is workable.

    Thanks, sekirt. I've tried all the word combinations I can think of, but cannot locate the original "dolphins" from Microsoft, but will still try.

    Get in touch with some of your contacts and see if they still have a copy.
