OE Classic 1.7 released (HTML Editor, Stationery)

Nov 7th, 2013

We have 2 words for you - HTML and Stationery. So with this version OE Classic finally supports sending email in HTML format which has been neglected for way too long, although as we look back now, it wasn't a big technical challenge. And as we added HTML we figured - let's also add stationery support compatible with Outlook Express - so there you have it! To be able to use OE stationery you need to place it in special folder %LOCALAPPDATA%\OEClassicStationery and paths to image files must be relative (you may have to manually modify paths in some stationery files). Of course, different stationery folder is possible.
