Hotmail fancy emails

  collinsc 17:52 19 Jul 2008


I recently 'signed up' for a hotmail add on where you can send mails with fancy backgrounds.

It has placed a folder in my document called 'My Stationery' where it contains images of the backgrounds you can have when sending an e-mail.

However, i cant actually work out how to use them!
Do i have to sign into something special rather than simply hotmail!?

i dont recall the instructions - which i know isnt good! i just rushed through it. im thinking perhaps i didnt complete it correctly.

no-nothing todo with outlook express.

i think i was signing up to hotmail live or something! but i just ticked the 'mail' box - specifically for this functionality i mention, whi i required.

thanks guys - still not working though... i sign in and the toolbar isnt there. there is no tiny icon next to the question mark. i just have "options" next to the question mark - and none of the options are relevant.

im signing into windows livemail

ah ok... well it did it automatically... i did not ralise i was downloading anything until i saw the 'stationery' folder. i had assumed it was all web based!

thanks for confirming - i was always under the impression hotmail could not be run through outlook...!
