Ever since upgrading to Snow Leopard I've been having trouble with custom stationary. I can save it with no trouble but when I go to apply it to a blank e-mail, nothing happens. The standard stationary that came with Mail all works fine but the custom versions I've created, both in Leopard and Snow Leopard, don't work at all. I've tried deleting them and creating new ones but nothing seems to work. Anyone else have this problem or know of a fix?

Thanks,
Nick

    I have the same problem. The stationary files in the "/User/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Mail" directory look fine but Mail cannot apply a stationary to a new Mail.

    Finally i can solve the custom stationary issue, i begin with my custom stationary in mail, then save as stationary, and later when i selected nothing happen, so what i did was find my custom stationary in /user/library/application support/mail....,until you find your custom stationary file, then right click show package content, and open the content.html, mine open in safari some fonts don't work, but i fixed it, then, mail the content of the page in safari, The page open in mail as a new message and there choose again save as stationary, when you do it the older custom stationary will work fine as the new one.

    The problem again in yahoo and hotmail, the text appear but the images don't

    As soon as I installed OS X 10.6.3, I came across the situation that my CUSTOM STATIONERY did no longer work.
    Until a patch comes along, here is a work around.

    1) Create a new Message
    2) Change your signature to NONE
    3) Select your stationery. If your stationery includes a signature, it will show in your message, if it does not, edit the stationery as needed.

    Thank you for the tip! This work around solves the problem.

    Having the same problem and thought of the same workaround that you suggest here. Since all that was being saved was the signature, I tried again and changed the signature to "None." But none of my text was saved ALTHOUGH the signature, which I had switched to "None" WAS saved!!! Any ideas why this is happening?
