Mozilla Thunderbird - creating stationery - or templates?

I don't see much here on Mozilla.
Please tell me you know how to make a simple
stationery letterhead from importing an HTML
file or a Word file. Also where is the Template
file that I have saved my attempts thus far to, but
cannot find - nor can I find out how to edit
my Profile file or where i can open it....
ie., I am getting sick of that and about to ditch
the whole deal.
Help me soon!

Thanks - I guess not many people are
using Thunderbird - including me, I gave
up on it too!
Sorry to hear that. But you are from the braver lot to have tried it :)

I tried it for a few days specifically so that I can help people out here ;-) OE still remains my #1 client. Do you want a refund?
