Can you include a image in an autosignature

Outlook 97

I've been trying to find out if you include an image (in this case an immage of an actual signature) in the autosignature facility, I know you can paste it into to the actual message but is there any way to add it to the autosignature?

Any ideas appreciated

Watch Question

Are you using Office 2000 - Outlook 2000?

If so -
Create signature
Click Advanced Edit
Insert - Picture - from file
Save it as rtf file.
Close Outlook
Open Outlook and picture should be there

Ooops - sorry - you are using 97.  For 97 - just open Word - insert picture
Click once on picture
Ctrl C
Open signature picker in Outlook
Ctrl V

Should put picture in signature block


Afraid not, I did give that a go but it doesn't insert it into the autosignature box, I think it must be one of 97's limitations unless there's a patch out there that i don't know about.

Hmmm - ok - give this a try (I can't don't have Off 97 on any workstation anymore) - Close Outlook.

Search for *.rft files
Then go to Word
File - Open - all files
and open this file
Insert the picture and save

Then go to Outlook and see if picture appears


Many thanks, it works a treat!
