You can paint a picture with your words, of course. You also want to tell your friends about the latest cycling tour, though, or ask about their dog and cat. That's a lot of text to write and read; a lot of text especially compared to just your telling and — stationery.

In Yahoo! Mail, stationery is available for holidays, to set the mood, and to form a neutral (or funny) backdrop. Applying these styles is, thankfully, easy.

Send an Email Using Stationery in Yahoo! Mail

To write an email on rich and classy stationery in Yahoo! Mail:

  • Start with a new email using rich text formatting.
    • You can also apply stationery after you have already typed text for your message. No need to start from scratch. It is often easier to see a style's effect with text already present.
  • Click Stationery in the toolbar to show the stationery bar to the right.
  • Select the desired style from the Stationery bar.
    • You can try different stationery styles with a message. Any text you have typed will not be affected — other than in its formatting. (Text styles you have set — such as the font or boldness — will be preserved.)
  • Continue composing your message and finally send it.

To return to a rich-text email using no stationery:

  • Select None in the Stationery bar.
