Adding the Outlook autosignature to the end of an email

I am currently researching the best way to generate a HTML email from within Access.  The body of the email is set from within the Access database, but I do need to bolt on the clients default autosignature at the end.  This works fine if there is no image in the autosignature, but when I insert a test image, it works the first time, but if you restart Outlook and go back in - you get the red x where the image was.  I have tried playing with the location and filenames of the image, cleaning down "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security\OutlookSecureTempFolder" - but nothing seems to be consistently working.

One thing that I was just wondering, was if I could get Outlook to to automatically bolt on the AutoSignature once Access has finished its tasks (something like a macro).

Thanks in advance for your help.

The image is sometimes a problem in html emails. Do you want to try to put the image on your webserver and embed using that link?

Would that do the trick.  If so, would I edit the html of the signature file and tell it to point to the hyperlink?

Tried that and it did work if I used an external SMTP program - but when the email is recieved you get the red-x until you download images.

Now-a-days email programs do that with images but then everybody who uses them knows that. They will have to download images. All the html emails will get the red-x and a message to download images.

Thank you - so any email that I send out with an image on will need to have that image hosted on a server, and require the user to download it or add me to their safe senders list.

Yes, unless you are using a mass mailing program (they don't require image hosted on the server).

I don't think adding to safe senders list matters for downloading the images.

Really appreciate all of your help on this one.  I'm interested in knowing how they and Outlook manage to embed the images - if you have any info/links on this that would be a help.  Other then that - thanks again.
