I customized a stationery template that I had imported into Mail. Now I want to save it as a template, but "Save as Stationery" is greyed out in the File menu. Is there something I'm missing here? I've saved it as a draft, but want to use it multiple times.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6), 8 x 2.8 GHz 10 GB RAM, Radeon 4870

    O good grief! I followed your instructions and Mail has crashed three times now.

    So, what the heck Apple.

    Thanks for the reply Gary. Yes, why have the instructions that don't work? I am on 10.5.8. It even crashed when I pushed the see stationary button. I've been avoiding the new OS's. I'm unsure I have space for it? Not a techy, but I have 595 GB capacity with 310 available. Anyway, it was just a diversion to play with the templates after I saw the "what's new in mail" button....cheers

    O wait, my Capacity is 595.85 GB, Available is 31.53, and I've Used 285.32. Not good, I have to put in another stick. I do have a back up disk though....ta again

    I will likely upgrade very soon, if my techy agrees. I made a typo, I have available 310.61 and used 285.24. I am slightly phobic when it comes to all this. I think I have room for another stick of ram, but that's all on this computer.

    Thanks, Gary, for the interesting idea but it won't work for me because the stationery I am trying to create contains a twenty address Bcc as part of my stationery. (That's the real reason I need this particular template). Following your instructions, I created a good "future" template and was just about to push the send button when I realized that twenty people will be getting a blank email from me. Not good as that tends to lower your "Sender Rating" with friends. ;-)


    I don't know why this is so hard for Apple to do for us? Eudora did this so elegantly ten years ago.


    It is virtually impossible to make an addressed template with an signature in Apple Mail. How wimpy!


    Any ideas would be dearly appreciated.
