How to Send Emails Rich and Sweet Using Mac OS X Mail Stationery

By

Postcards are wonderful. Do send postcards!

But then you can only send about one postcard a day from your trip, and they're not your photos either—just typical postcard-pretty postcard-photos. How about sending more photos you've taken yourself by email more often—and in mint condition, embedded in enticing email stationery?

In Mac OS X Mail, you can not only send photos but use diligently crafted templates for invitations, greetings and hellos as well.
