eml formatted stationery, Ubuntu and Mozilla Thunderbird


Hello;
I have Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS, and for my email client, I use Mozilla Thunderbird. I have the Extension; 'Stationery 0.7.8' allowing me to use some .exe as well as some .zip formatted stationery.
I would like to know if there is a way in which a stationery that is .eml formatted would work with Ubuntu and Thunderbird or whether there is an email client that is compatible with Ubuntu wherein I could use .eml, .exe and.zip formatted stationery?

Just for fun, I installed 0.7.8 on Thunderbird. I went into my XP system and found the stationary files, copied them into a directory on my linux system, and edit the Preferences for 0.7.8 to point to that dir. I now have a list of stationary files. They are html, so no reason you can not make your own.

On XP, the files were in
Quote:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Stationary
Found this link that talks about .eml files. Not sure if that helps, or not,

-->http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/eml

Hope this helps.

camorri,

I checked out the site you gave me. It did not help me. It reminded me though of a stationery site that had instructions to allow stationery being sent to such Webmail sites as Yahoo and Gmail to allow stationery (html) to be seen in total rather then split apart. There there was the addition of.mht after the name of the piece. So one would have; 'roses.mht.html' It would be sent as an attachment in a non html stationery. Basically that was it however i must be missing something because i have tried it and no luck.

In the past I have inquired about this question and it may be one of those things which has no answer. Hope I am wrong.

When i had my Windows XP my stationery was set up for: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Stationary

Here my stationery set up is at: /home/bill48/Stationery

Thanks for giving it a go around. Do hope you will enjoy the extension?

I did find the instrcutions using the .mht extension it was at www.stationary.org and went something like this:

"Sending a message to someone who does not use Outlook Express

1.Type out your message as you normally would.
2.Instead of sending the message... go to file save as and save the message as a mail file to your desktop
3.The file that you saved will have a ???.eml extension
4.Change the .eml extension to ???.mht
5.Compose new message and insert the ???.mht file that you saved on your desktop
6.Tell the person that their message is in the attachment and then send the message as you normally would.

Here is a slightly shorter way to do the same thing:

Create the message using our Stationary in Outlook Express as normal
Don't send, just click on File / Save As... Then type in the name you want to use for it, enclosing the whole name in quotes, along with the .mht extension. The quotes marks prevent a default extension from being added to your filename.
For example: "Blue Moon.mht"
Hit the "Save to Desktop" and our Stationary is ready to send as an attachment.
Write a "Plain Text" message then add the Saved Desktop Message as an Attachment."

I double checked it out and it works, you may have some fun with it? I'll wait a couple days or so to see if there may be some one who has a different slant on the subject of .eml stationery.

It has been a few days and no one has come up with anything related to my original question, which makes me believe for the moment that it is a question the answer to which is one of those unanswerable ones.That being or seeming to be the case I will close this thread not exactly solved but there is apparently no reason to keep it open any longer.
