Image doesn't display in e-mail messages

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I use an e-mail signature that features an image that floats in when the mail is opened. Unfortunately, the image isn't always displayed. Ever so often, what floats in is a white box the the red x in the top corner that Outlook likes to use to replace unwanted images. I would like the image displayed by default, of course, not only on my machine but on any other email software, regardless of the local settings. If the image can't be made to float in, I would like it to be displayed. If it can't be displayed, it should be omitted.

I attach the code currently in use. I can't get it to work even on my own machine. I load the signature automatically when creating a new mail or reply. It will function fine a few times after new installation, but after a few uses the image will be replaced by the box to reappear again occasionally by rules I can't figure out.
