Looking to see if we can use Custom Lotus Notes Stationary when selecting New message as a default using Lotus Notes 8.x

    If the cutomized stationery is unique for each employee, then using a stationery is a good idea. If not, you can do the necessary changes to the Memo form through designer and make it available when users creates a new memo.

    If it is unique, then the only way is to select the stationery type and create a memo.
    Check "Creating and using stationery for mail" from Notes Client help. Apart from that, if you are looking to default to a stationery, it may not be possible.
    Let's wait for other experts comments.

    No experience in 8 yet. For 6.x or 7 I would say that ik should be possible to do so, if you are willing to change the default mail template and update every users' maibox.

    You'd have to look at what the action to start using a stationary does, and decide on how you can/want to implement similar code for a new memo.
    The dialog could be bypassed if you obtain a stationary reference in a different way (user profile / hard-coded?).
    Don't forget to create a back-door: if the stationary does not exist...!

    Not a solution but I got the answer I was afraid I would get.  That is the only way would be to change the mail template through Designer.  Thanks for the replies!

    Ehhh... it IS a (or "the") solution!
    If you had asked to do this without a design update, "it can't be done" would be a valid answer!

    Anyway, please don't leave your question open if you intend to let it end here.

    I expected a split in points.
    "If not, you can do the necessary changes to the Memo form through designer and make it available when users creates a new memo." -> provided you the answer.
    If you think of splitting points, pls raise a zero point question in community support with this thread link.
