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?

Ah

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