Welcome to the ScrippyMe Yahoo User Group home page.
This website has been developed in order to provide services for our group
which includes Scrippy lessons and may also include stationery created by
it's members. You may also find links to graphic tutorials for the
purpose of creating better backgrounds and/or graphics with which to make
your Outlook Express Stationery. For those who might perhaps be
interested in joining this group, please note that in order to do so you
must use Microsoft Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. Netscape
does not allow for the viewing of stationery and neither does AOL.
However, the new Scrippy-3 does show up for Netscape users. While webtv users may be able to view our work here, I do not know about
their ability to view graphical email messages however they have no way of
sustaining images or doing graphics, so for this purpose, webtv users may
The reason that Scrippy stationery has not been used for
this website is that it does not allow for the easy insertion of a web
page counter or other html code. ScrippyMe is not affilitated with
the Scrippy web site and has no
Each week a new lesson will be posted at this site.
The lessons will begin on Mondays and end on the following Monday.
If you wish to utilize this site without joining our group please feel
free to do so. However, questions are limited to those who are
members of the group due to time restraint.
What do you need in order to participate? You will
need the Scrippy program available here.
It comes as a 30-day trial and the cost is very minimal, around $39.00 US
dollars. You will also need some kind of graphics program as well as
the ability to use it. As I use Paintshop Pro, the lessons which
might be posted here, or links thereof, for graphics, will be done with
PSP in mind. You may also download a trial of the Paintshop Pro
program here. As well as these
two items, it is suggested that you do a search for filters to be used
with PSP. There are many free filters available on the internet as
well as some which must be purchased. But even these often come as a
trial version. Recommended filters are Flaming Pear's Blade Pro and
Eyecandy4000, and other filters needed, if any, will be made available per
lesson. Presets for Blade Pro are abundant throughout the internet
and are usually free, as well you may make your own presets with this
To join the ScrippyMe Yahoo Group you may enter your email
address in the box below. If you are unsure of how this membership
works, it is quite simple. You must be able to receive html mail,
that is, rich-text format mail which will allow you to view and send
stationery. The messages will be delivered to your inbox. It
is recommended that you make a separate folder for your ScrippyMe mail and
set a message rule so that each message which pertains to this group will
be automatically placed there. Each new message you post is sent to all
members to encourage participation. Replies to messages are sent
only to the original author in order to lessen the flow of messages
through the group itself. At this time membership is restricted,
this merely means the moderator must approve each and every member, it
does not mean that any one person is not going to be approved! In
order to join this group the moderator would like to know your goals, what
you hope to accomplish by joining.
should be set as follows:
Send: Include message in reply. This allows the
readers to follow the conversation.
Mail Sending Format: Plain Text. This ensures
that when you do a reply to a message sent with stationery, that the
entire stationery will not be resent. This can be very annoying,
however it is mainly for the purpose of being able to read replies.
If you reply without having this set, your message is very hard, if not
impossible to read.
Compose: Under compose be sure to include a business
card. To make one is very simple. Add a new entry into your
address book for your current email address or put any address in there
that you'd like. It doesn't have to be a valid address for the vcard
to work.. Now click on 'Include
my business card when creating new messages' and browse to find the entry
for yourself. This card prevents the Yahoo ads from ruining your
