How do I set MOTD?

I am a new convert to Linux and trying to get it all figured out to switch over a small business to linux. I have a feeling that this question should be pretty easy, but..... How do I set MOTD? I thought I should just edit the file to say what I want it to, but it didn't work out. Should I use emacs or something else for this?

Thanks for the help.

You maybe want to edit /etc/issue instead of /etc/motd?
