Yahoo! Mail lets users create personalised e-mail messages by offering a selection of pre-made stationery templates. This feature, however, is available only when members use the Classic Mail version. After Yahoo! and AT&T partnered, Yahoo! introduced a more advanced e-mail version called AT&T Yahoo! Mail; the stationery feature has not yet been implemented into this newest version as of January 2010.

  1. 1

    Log into to your Yahoo! Mail account and start a new message by clicking on the bold-type "New" in the top left hand corner of your screen (next to the "Check Mail" button). In order to add stationery to your e-mails, you need to make sure you are in rich-text mode. Look directly beneath the "Subject" line of your new e-mail. If you see the words "Plain Text," then you are already in rich-text mode. However, if you see the link for "Rich Text," you need to click on this link to activate Rich Text mode.

  2. 2

    Look at the toolbar displayed directly beneath the "Subject" line, with several colour icons. The last icon on the very right has an image that looks like two overlapping pieces of paper; one piece of paper is green, the other is yellow. This is the "Stationery" icon. Place your mouse over this icon to confirm it is indeed the icon for choosing stationery.

  3. 3

    Click on the icon. A new window will pop up with a list of available themes in the left column. Templates for different stationery in any given theme will appear in the right column. Choose the stationery you want to use then click "Done" to save and activate your stationery. This will remain the stationery template used in every message you send until you change it to a different template.

Tips and warnings

  • Because the stationery feature is currently available only in Yahoo! Classic Mail, you will need to change your setting to Classic Mail if you want to use stationery with your e-mail messages. You can check whether you are already using Classic Mail by logging into your e-mail account. Look for the "Options" pull-down toolbar located at the far top right of your e-mail inbox screen. Click on the down arrow and choose "Switch to Classic Mail."
  • Also, if you have an e-mail address with the suffix of or, the above steps will also work for you.
