An e-mail stationery or an e-mail template depending which e-mail program you are using now, is basically a preformatted message that you can use over and over again.

An example this would be if you were part of an organization and you would want to send an official welcome message to each new member from your organization.

Some e-mail programs have this function under the menu selection - new message. Others have this function under mail actions. You can go to your help function to find out if your e-mail program either supports e-mail stationery function or e-mail template and how you can create them.

You may be able to customize the background and or preformat the text options. You still need to be aware that while your e-mail program can view these messages, perhaps the person who has a different e-mail program, on the receiving end, may not be able to view certain types of format options, (Hyperlinks may be one of them). So if you do decide to try this, keep your e-mail stationery or e-mail template very simple and basic.

Do not get this confused with an e-mail draft. An e-mail draft is a message that you started to write and for some reason you do not have time to complete. Perhaps you have run out of time and you have to go to work, you get an important phone call saying you have won a million dollars, you get an offer you can't refuse from your other half, etc. In all of these cases, in most e-mail programs, the message you have begun to compose you can save as a draft.

The next time you open your e-mail program, it may or may not remind you that you have a message waiting to be completed in your draft folder. When you complete this message and send it, it will now be in your sent e-mail folder. A saved e-mail stationery or template, when completed and sent, will also be in your sent e-mail folder, however the original e-mail stationery or e-mail template will have remain in which ever e-mail folder you saved it.
