I have created a signature in Outlook 2000, it contains a logo on it as well as some text.  The problem is when I send the e-mail - it adds the logo as an attachment and the reciepient cannot see the logo.  Does anyone know a way of incorporating the text and the logo together???
Help would be much appreciated.

Unfortunately, you can't control how the receiving person's email client is set up.  If they are set up to view all images as attachments, or they don't have the ability to view images inline then unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about it.

A bit of an odd way to do this.

If you are sending html formatted email, and you have a website available. (Freebie ISP one will do)
You could set a link in your email to the image hosted on a website.

This will reduce the size of your email, but the clients will only see the image while they are connected to the net.

Just a thought.

Three things to check:

1) How are emails set up in Outlook - do they use RTF, Plain Text or HTML?
If the answer is text, then there is your answer!

2) Also, check that the Exchange Server does not send out emails only as plain text as that will cause the graphics in the signature to be appeneded as an attachment.

3) How are the clients set to recive incoming emails? If their server is set to plain text, that will also cause the same effect.
