In order to make expanding and scrolling stationery for Incredimail, you will need some programs.
They are listed below:

Incredimail and Letter Creator
Download here.
Letter Creator comes with a brief free trial, but then has to be bought.

Paint Shop Pro
Download here
While other graphic programs can be used, support in this course is given for PSP only (I work with PSP 8, 9 and X2 only).

Color Cop
Download here.
Color Cop is a small free program to help choose colors, it works like the Dropper Tool in PSP.

HTML-Kit 292
Download here.
You could also use Notepad, CoffeeCup, Dreamweaver or FrontPage.

Download here.
While installing make sure that you unclick any Toolbar and/or additional program it wants to add (in my experience it may or may not).
This Archiver program is free to download and use.

Power Archiver
Download my 2010 version here.
This Archiver program is free to download and use.
It also works after the trial.
I am getting conflicting advice about the latest version working with .imf/.cab files, this is why I suggest that you download and install the 2010 version, which does work.

I like to extract .cab files with PeaZip and make new .cab files with Power Archiver.

You need archiver programs like PeaZip and Power Archiver.
WinZip and WinRAR can NOT create the files we need.
