Is it possible to use a global stationary (don't know if it's the right word) for all outgoing emails. I wanted to create a html-template and all massages should be pasted to a certain position. The result should be a uniform look for corporate mails.

thx for your replies.

Have you considered the fact that you have no control over how the receiver's email client renders the message? If you e.g. use Outlook 2007 with MS Word as the message editor, you will by default instruct the receiver's client to render the message using the Calibri typeface. This typeface (or "font", if you will) only exists in newer versions of Windows and Office. A couple of replies back and forth between three or more recipients, will quickly reduce the whole thing to a monofont mess.

You could of course get away with it by carefully crafting the template CSS with something you know "everyone's" got installed - like Arial, Helvetica or Verdana - but some recipients will inevitably see something completely different from what you intended.

And I'm not even going to mention all the corporate users who will have their Outlook HTML mail rendered by the obsolete IE6 ...

I agree that stationary starts at the client, and can quickly degenerate. For outlook users, you can probably create a stationary and push it through shared files and group policy, but what a mess if you don't have all the same version of OutLook or if someone is using (gasp!) ThunderBird or some alternate client. And, starting with Outlook 2007 (maybe 2003), MS chose to have HTML messages rendered by Word, rather than IE, so many things, such as basic 'table' tags, don't render correctly.
