Darryl, change the image back to the old one, and test if work computer will work.

Recreate the signature in your home computer.  The migration after reinstall may have corrupted it.

Hello Hoosierpappy,

Some recipient's ISP or email clients block images.  Instead of embedding an image in the signature, it is better to put the image on a public server and have the signature link to it.  The others will be able to see your signature.

Hope this helps!

In most e-mail clients you can choose to download the images once you have opened the e-mail. Think it is rightclick on image and choose download images. I use Evolution e-mail client on Ubuntu mostly from home and there the setting is under view menu and load images once you have opened the e-mail.

Up till about a month ago the signature i created with an image worked in outgoing and reply messages on two different computers one at home and one at work using xp professioinal.  On the home computer i had to reinstall office 2003, and since then the issue of the image not showing up in the emails outgoing and replies started ocurring.  In the signature creation edit window the image is showing up.  

In addition the work computer which was working fine until yesturday, now has the same issue after I tried to replace the image in the signature with another one.  Both images are .jpg.  So both computers and sigs are now having the same red x issue.  

What comes up for me is that it worked and now does not.  Looking for explanation of why this is so, and if solution can be found for that first it is my preference.  Then other solutions will be considered.
