    I'm posting a thread from WM with hopes that someone here will be able to
    help me resolve this problem. With this thread hopefully it will save a lot
    of unnecessary posts of the same information. I am using WLM but didn't know
    there were 2 mail programs when I first sought help. My original question is
    at the bottom of this. Here goes:

    Unfortunately I am not a stationery expert, and I have never
    used stationery or embedded sound myself.
    Another responder who is more familiar with this topic may
    offer his services, or you can post this question in the WLM
    newsgroup:

  2. I've found that for using custom stationery, Windows Mail is much better
    than Windows Live Mail. Windows Mail (the one that comes with Vista) allows
    you to add the Source Edit and Preview tabs at the bottom of your e-mails so
    you can immediately make any changes, if necessary. I've used Windows Mail
    and the embedded background sound does play, so I really don't know what the
    problem could be. I'm assuming that it did work fine in Outlook Express,
    but now doesn't work in either Windows Mail, or in Windows Live Mail.

    Oh, and the Security you are looking for is under Tools/Safety Options. I
    have mine set to LOW. Also, have you tried just adding a sound to a plain
    e-mail? Just click on Format/Background/Sound and browse to a sound and
    click on OK. Once you do that, the sound should play.

    If you have any other questions, just let me know.

    Just one more thing, I hope. If I start using WM how will that affect the
    files I have in WLM? Will I lose all of my messages? I don't want to do that.
    I'll just wait until I get an answer to this before I even open WM.
    Y'all have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS. I'll check back later in the week to see
    what you've suggested. Thanks so much.

  4. No, you won't lose your messages in Windows Live Mail. Just set your
    messages to not download in Windows Mail and use it solely for sending your
    stationery.

  5. I routinely run both WM and WLM, and they don't interfere with each other.
    There are no shared files between the two programs.
