I have regularly used Apple Mail/Stationery with my Apple chums, but I have refrained from doing so with my PC colleagues for fear they would not “see” the stationery or it would somehow mess up their email.

For Stationery to work on a PC, is everything dependent on the recipient’s OS, email client, ISP, or some other vagary? Or, will Stationery work fine and my presumption is wrong? confused

I haven't used it lately, but Mail's Stationery used to be HTML coded stuff and graphics. Now it might use coding that is "off" from a PC's standpoint so what you see is not what you get, but in theory it should work.

Thanks, Ira.

Alas, me thinks I'll need to find a few PC users, ideally with different operating systems, and then send the same stationery to all, and see what results.

I'll post back any results of interest.

I have found some people who have slow connections or are using cellular data, may restrict email to non-HTML to conserve precious bandwidth even though their email server and/or client is HTML capable. So just because Aunt Ruth is using Apple Mail on Sierra and will get the text, it does not mean she will see the pretty Stationary. NOTE: she will get the text just not the trimmings. The same is true for anyone that does not have an HTML capable email client.

It is good to know that (at least) my email will be readable, even if the Stationery is not.

In the main, I find much the Stationery ilk to be fluff/eye-candy with little operational benefit, ergo I pay it so little mind. Still, I have been known to weaken...

Of course, many thanks, Joe.
