Outlook 2007 - Creating Linked Signature Image without attachment using HTML Email type

I want to have our company logo in our Signatures.
We are using Outlook 2007
I have tried every variation of creating signatures in Outlook 2007 Signature Editor without success.
I have directly edited the file %userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures\logo.htm
I have changed the unimaginably bloated html, removing the vml check and the

<img border=0 width=269 height=41 src="Full_files/image002.gif" v:shapes="_x0000_i1025">

to

<img height=41 width=269 src="http://css.experts-exchange.com/xp/images/10yearLogo.png" border=0>

Using Gmail's Show Original option I can see the code in my test Emails.
The actual code in the received email is
<img width=200 height=106 id="_x0000_i1025" src="cid:image001.png@01C861C4.608F7DC0" alt="http://www.domain.com/images/10yearLogo.png">

It was clearly made into an attachment prior to being sent.

I have my email client set up to reject any and all embedded images - this is the safest and most secure way to read emails these days as too many spammers embedded web bugs to validate email addresses so they could wash their lists and get more money by targeting known good email addresses.
Ultimately, it doesn't really matter how the email is sent out - what will matter more is what the recipient does with the email when it arrives.

It looks like this is not possible due to built in software limitations.

I have seen companys in Denmark who has their logo embedded without the attachment, so there must be a solution somehow.
