formatting emails to have background graphics?

I have a word document that my company uses as letterhead.  It has graphics and I would like to make it the background of an email.  How do I go about doing this?  I want to be able type over the top of the letterhead so that the graphics don't move.  Any help would be appreciated.

yes, but i'm looking into the posting that you gave earlier for OE to see if it will work for outlook.  I will reward soon on that post.  I should have started here because it's outlook not OE that I need help with.  Thanks.
