Hi,
When I an email with a signature that has company logo on it the logo appears to the recipient as an attachment.  Is there any way of doing it so the logo does not appear as an attachment?

I have created a signature in outlook in html.
Firstly Text then web address and then at the bottom i have the company logo in the format:

<div style="font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:.8em;">Company Name<br>
Address1<br>
Address2<br>
Address3<br>
PostCode<br>
<br>
T: 12344546346<br>
E:      <a href="mailto:emailaddress">emailaddress</a><br>
W: <a href="http://www.domainname.com">www.domainname.com</a></div>
   <p><img src="http://www.domainname.com/images/logo.jpg"></p>


I used the above as a template when creating the signature in Outlook 2003.

Greetings harris9999 !

Put the logo on a server accessible by internet.  Then put the link the logo in your HTML signature. Then user will see the logo, and not an attached file.

Hope this helps, war1

Hi Harris999: In Outlook go to:

Options -> Mail Format -> Internet Format -> Untick "When an HTML message contains picture located on the Internet send a copy of the pictures instead of the reference to their location".

harris9999,

Picture in a link should work.  Do you still see the logo, even with an attachment?

Try this other method of putting picture in background

Hi War1: Believe me - if Outlook "Internet Format" is not set correctly a link to an image stored on the Internet will be sent as an attachment! Just one of those MS things I guess - try it yourself - follow my post above (trying once with it ticked and then again with it unticked). You gotta love MS!

I understand that - the Internet Format is specifcally related to the way HTML messages are handled.
