Outlook HTML signature issue

I'm using HTML signatures in both outlook 2007 and outlook 2003 and when a user replies to my email or any other interoffice email with another signature, the next line of the email below the signature shows to the right of the email, not below.  You can also send yourself an email and if you reply to that email with another signature, the same thing occurs.

See sample image and html code.

Outlook doesn't handle tables in signature files well at all.  If you get rid of the table in that code and put the text below your graphic, it will work.  If you get rid of the graphic completely and eliminate the table, it will work.  I tried three different iterations of it with a table and was able to reproduce your error in OLK 2003 and 2007 every time.  Get rid of the table and I can no longer reproduce the error.  It looks like a limitation within Outlook, though I cannot find any documentation anywhere to show that.

It cannot be done is a valid answer.  I answered the question and the author made no further comment.

Sorry EE emails were being sent to spam due to an old filter.

I removed the table and sourced the image on the net instead of attaching to the email.  All is well now.

Thanks again guys!
