Hi everyone,
I want to use a jpeg image (our LOGO) file on my outlook signature however I'm having problems because the version of MS outlook and MS Word is different. I had installed Office 2003 Pro on my  computer and later I installed standard Office 2007 and I have been having no problems until recently when I need to use a jpeg file on my signature. I can not use MS Office 2007 as my email editor program as it is not available (grayed out). I tried to use rich text format and HTML to edit my emails but it did not work (can not see the jpeg file) I also tried to use bitmap same thing. Is there any way around it? Thanks.

In Outlook open up your signature for editing (Tools, Options, Mail Format, Signatures, Edit).  Then click on the advance edit button.  Once this opens delete your jpeg and re-import it into the docment.  Then click on the save icon and close the program.  Now your signature should work.

The problem is I can not re-import it, I tried to re-create it but it won't let me paste any image files, it won't show it.

To Patch or not to Patch? That is the question!

Don't get caught out like thousands of others around the world in the recent Ransomware Fiasco!

Also I need to remind you that when you go to the advanced edit word won't open because of the version difference I think.

When you click on the advance edit button does it open in word or notepad?

XP or Vista?

You may want to find your signatures folder and edit the HTML signature straight from there

In Vista, your signatures folder is in:
C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures

In Vista, your signatures folder is in:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures

The problem is also easily solved this way:
create the signature in Word, cut and paste from Word into a new email message.  Then copy what you just pasted from the email message...go to add a new signature (tool, options, mail format, etc), and paste into the new signature box.  Works great!!
