Guide Review - Digital Pen 2.0 - Email Stationery Editing Tool

How do they do that with Outlook Express Stationery? Certainly, one or the other great stationery has stirred that question in you. Outlook Express itself provides a simple stationery wizard, but you can't even add an animated background with it.

You'll have more luck with Digital Pen. The program is extremely simple to use, just like the Outlook Express wizard, and takes you through the process step by step.

You can add a scrolling background, an animation and music, and you can choose the text fond and color. An instant and useful preview is always available.

Unfortunately, Digital Pen restricts your creativity to the options available, and these are not manifold. If you want to get more involved with stationery, look elsewhere.
