The Skype site provides HTML code that can be added to a web site that will put a button on the form saying Skype Me. Is there any way to add a similar button to a signature on an e-mail in Outlook 2007

Hi, Rob4077.

Yes, that's possible. See this page for details: http://www.skype.com/share/buttons/.  I don't believe you can use one of the buttons that shows the status, but I could be wrong about that.

Hi BlueDevilFan, and thanks for the link. That link helps me create the HTML code needed but where/how do I save in Outlook so that it appears with my signature?

1.  Go to the Skype page, select the button image you want to use, enter your Skype name, and generate the code.
2.  Use Outlook's signature editor to edit your signature.
3.  Click the Picture button.
4.  Copy and paste the URL (e.g. http://download.skype.com/share/skypebuttons/buttons/call_blue_white_124x52.png) from the generated code into the File name field.
5.  With the button image selected click the Insert Hyperlink button.
6.  Copy and paste the text in the href tag argument (e.g. skype:YourName?call) from the generated code into the address field.
