Display the default signature in a new Outlook mail message

I have a VB6 program that generates an Outlook email, the problem is it does not contain the user's signature? Any ideas how to ensure that it is part of the email

The GetInspector is what adds the default signature

http://www.dreamincode.net/forums/topic/31537-use-of-default-signature-from-outlook-olmail/
Dim oOutlook As Outlook.Application  
02 Dim olMail As Outlook.MailItem  
03 Dim oAddSig As Outlook.Inspector  
04    
05 Set oOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")  
06 Set olMail = olApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)  
07    
08 Set oOutlook = olMail.GetInspector  
09    
10 With olMail  
11       Call .Recipients.Add("h***@there.com")  
12       .Subject = "Blah blah blah" 
13       .Body = "Email test message 1" 
14       Call .Send  
15 End With  
16 Set oOutlook = Nothing 

Open in new window

I haven't heard of the getinspector returning the signature so just in case the normal method with which I am familiar is getboiler!

As demonstrated by Ron DeBruin:

The GetInspector method does not add the signature

It will certainly work by importing it after the fashion of the supplied link then.

I honestly cannot recall if I ever tried it with graphics so are you using the HTML file import ... and is the email HTML, for example?

Yes I set the objMail.HTMLBody but it leaves out the images

I need to try and play with this ... so I may be a while - and perhaps someone knowing more will be able answer soon.

Hi Chris,

I managed to open the signature replace the image path with the full path and it worked fine. Thanks for you help

Ah

I would never have seen that as your problem as I was using a direct path already ... well done.
