With the release of Windows 7 came the decline of our Cloudeight Stationery site. We tried to make stationery for Windows Live Mail – but almost everyone who used Windows Live Mail was not happy with it. Plus creating stationery for Windows Live Mail was not a very creative endeavor due to the restrictions of Windows Live Mail. Microsoft claimed they were going to improve it — but almost four years later Windows Live Mail isn’t any better. Windows 8 takes a step backward with its primitive mail app. If my PC were a smartphone or a tablet, a mail app would be okay — but my PC needs a full-fledged email client, not some Android mail app rip-off.
We fell upon hard times the last few years as we struggled to make up for the loss of all those Windows Mail and Outlook Express users who, weren’t coming anymore because well, they didn’t have an email program with which they could use our stationery. Email seemed to be on the decline with the rise of social networking and video chat and Skype.
When we found a way to work around Microsoft’s deactivation of Windows Mail in Windows 7 (and Windows 8) we began making plans to making new stationery. We can help any Windows 7 or Windows 8 user get Windows Mail back, and they’ll be able to use our stationery again – complete with music and scrolling (our regular stationery) or without (our QuickNotes stationery).
We’re going to be releasing new stationery for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day — as well as stationery that can be used year around.
Today we released three new QuickNotes collections for Windows Mail and Outlook Express:
If you love using stationery, but have been disappointed with your choice of Email programs for Windows 7 (and Windows 8), we can enable Windows 7 for you in your 64bit or 32bit Windows 7 or Windows 8 computer. Please see http://thundercloud.net/direct/winmail.htm for details.
Even if you don’t use stationery, you’ll find Windows Mail a much more capable email program than any other free email program out there. It’s more stable and less prone to problems than Windows Live Mail — which Microsoft never updated much since it was released four years ago.
If you’re a Windows Mail or Outlook Express user and you like to use stationery, you’ll be happy to hear we’re back in the stationery-making business again. And with Halloween and Christmas coming, you’ll find a lot of great new holiday stationery coming your way.
Thanks for your support of our new endeavors — we hope you’ll give us the same support as we begin to revitalize our original endeavor — Cloudeight Stationery.
