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.

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

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...
