Hello together

I've got the problem, that my Oulook 2007 freezes if the signature cannot show the linked picture.
If i write a mail and click on "Send" it just crashes. This happens only if my linked picture cannot beeing displayed as big as it is. (It shows the linked Picture very small)

Then Outlook crashes.... Please help me.
One Solution is, to implement the picture as picture and not as linked  picture. But i don't want to send a big file every time i will send a mail.

If i write a mail and the picture is showen like it should, everything is ok.

I use :

Win XP Pro SP3
Office 2007 Professional Plus
Kaspersky Network Agent

Kind Regards

Another solution, which is also best practice.
Remove the picture from the singature.

If thats not possible, check the image size.

Also check you have the latest 2007 SP installed:

Actaully, thinking this might not have anything to do with the image.

There is a known issue in Outlook 2007 that causes it to crash and its due to an Add-In

Outlook is crashing:
Disable add-ins. If you have Adobe Acrobat 6 installed, disable it's add-in first. SnagIt's addin will also crash Outlook. If Outlook crashes when you attempt to disable the addins, you'll need to edit the registry. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Outlook\Addins and change the load behavior for Acrobat, SnagIt or other non-Microsoft add-ins to 0.  

Try the above and see if you still have the issue
