Sorry about the joke. It is not possible to use blinking text in standard memo's and database documents etc, there isn't an available option or style for this. You may be able to do it in HTML though. Try it and see what happens.

Sorry that I didn't give you a clear question. What I mean was to make a text blink in MAIL. I don't know if it's possible or not?

Sorry there is no way in Notes mail to send your text blinking...
Notes design does not allow that.

Notes 4 does not support it

R5 option: Notes R5 will allow you to use blinking text. I do not know if you are using notes 5.... but here is the tip anyways ...
You can create a with 2 rows and set the timer option to say 200ms. The first row has the text and the second row is left blank. What notes 5 does is that it shows the two rows alternately at a time interval of 200 ms.

1.  Highlight the word your are going to underline and have the underline blink. (The word will not blink, but the underline will)
2.  In tool bar, select the "hyperlink" icon
3.  When the pop-up box comes up, it is already filled in, just click 'ok'.
4.  Highlight the word again and underline it
5.  The line will blink when you send the email
