I have a word document that my company uses as letterhead.  It has graphics and I would like to make it the background of an email.  How do I go about doing this?  I want to be able type over the top of the letterhead so that the graphics don't move.  Any help would be appreciated.

yes, but i'm looking into the posting that you gave earlier for OE to see if it will work for outlook.  I will reward soon on that post.  I should have started here because it's outlook not OE that I need help with.  Thanks.

Save as Drafts in such a way the image is encoded and is no more a reference to your image on your HD
If you check the HTML source of your message you should see spmrthing like:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Message</TITLE>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=us-ascii">
<META content="MSHTML 6.00.2800.1276" name=GENERATOR></HEAD>
<BODY background=cid:750502922@23112003-33AF>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV></BODY></HTML>
where cid is your encrypted image.
