Oh thank you for responding!!! , yay, yeah I would like all my new e:mails I compose at moment to be in bold type and the color blue. But I have to select style-bold and color blue, evrytime I write a letter. As soon as i stop writing it automatically goes back to a default setting I don't want? does that make sense?
No easy/simple way to do it in Tiger's Mail, Leopard/10.5's Mail has Save as Stationary.
About the only half way reasonable way is to get a clipboard manager...
(10.4 version at bottom of page)
For instance, I used stuf, made text doc of just one space, select all, change to Bold & Blue, copied that to the stuf clipboard, then when starting a new email I can paste that Bold & blue blank space & it works,
You could also write a script to do it I guess, with a key combo to invoke it.
