Permanent Background image in a message

One of our clients has asked me to put their company letter-head as a background image on all outgoing messages sent by employees.
The computers have a mixture of Microsoft outlook 2003 and Microsoft outlook 2007.
What I want to be able to do is, put the scanned(letterhead) jpg image as the background so that whenever someone types a new message it comes up as the background and you can type on it. Is this possible? if yes, how?
I would think its possible if you are sending HTML messages, so please advise.
Remember: we are not talking about signatures here.

Please help.

true, this is only for outlook 2003 or lower. 2007 does not support this anymore and even if you find a workaround then the receiver wont see the background. Too bad microsoft got rid of this option...that is why I never would upgrade to 2007, same experiences with Excel 2007....they just got rid of lots of functionality...

To add a background image to a message in Outlook (provided that you do not use Word for editing emails):

Start composing a new email using HTML formatting.
Click in the body of the message.
Select Format | Background | Picture... from the menu.
Use the file selection dialog to pick an image from your disk.
Click OK.

Good luck
