Auto signature won't show up

In MS Outlook 2003 I was able to set up an auto signature with no problem.  However, I included my company's logo but it is not showing up on new e-mails.  The text portion of the auto signature shows up just fine but in place of the logo there is a rectangular box with a capital X in the upper corner.
Can you tell me how to get the logo graphic to show up?

    Greetings, Steve_Brady !

    Did you create the signature with MS Word? Change the format of new mail to be same as signature. If signature was created with MS Word, make sure MS Word is selected as editor.  

    Best wishes!

    The company logos can look impressive in a message, however, keep in mind that unless the recipients have their e-mail setting set to accept HTML, they too, will see the red "X" box, instead of the logo.
