Hello everyone. I'm trying to use the stationery option with outlook
express. The stationery appears good in the new message window but when I
send it, the text size, and color return to the default and the stationery
background is received as an attachment. Help.

That's probably because your recipient has wisely set his email client
to display all messages as plain text, thereby eliminating a serious
security risk. Ask your recipient to make his system less secure so
that you can send him emails with pretty colors. (And so he'll be more
easily infested with malware should he accidentally open a spam email
message.)
