Click browse and select love_wikmail.jpg.

Alignment - select Top Right.

Message Border

I selected 8, and using the dropper tool chose a matching color.

Style

Click on the little arrow and select a style for the border. I chose Double.

Transparency

Now set the transparency so that you can see the background through this message layer but can still clearly see the text. Mine set at 86.

Message Text Margins

I set mine at 40 180 40 40 - again when you create a letter you will have to play with these settings. I had to drop the top margin to allow for the Top Right Graphic.

Select the Font and size

I chose Verdana size 10 and checked Bold.

Select the Font Color to suit.

Now click on sections and go back to General.

Set the scroll bar colors if you have not set them or they need changed.

Name and Save Stationery

At the top left select a name for your stationery. Click on File/Save As. I saved to a Computers folder. If you do not have one, right click on a blank white space in the folders list and select create new folder and name it Computers.

Now click on the Computers folder and it will appear on the save stationery pop up - click 'save stationery as'. It will be saved to your WikMail program and can be viewed in the send mail.

Click on File again. select 'Export to Zip .exe File'. select Flowers and the name of the stationery which will be listed there. uncheck ZIP and check EXE and click on Execute. The .exe file will be stored in your WikMail Program, Zipped Stationery.
