Microsoft Outlook sugnature logo is fuzzy

We have been trying with a variety of settings to insert a company logo that the md wants on all Outlook signatures. So far we have tried
.jpg @ 96 dpi
.png @ 96 dpi
.gif @ 72 and 96 dpi

All of the images viwed as images in their own right through any image viewer are perfect however all of the images appear fuzzy when added to a signature and sent/received. Apart from sending a graphic signature as a html file, which we have since been advised against due to  email filters preventing HTML signatures, how can I send a sharp logo as as part of a signature...???

Many thanks.

Thanks seasenor but our client decided to opt for the html signature approach. Their web designers are creating the code for it. From what I can find there are 2 schools of thought regarding this approach so we will have to see how well it works. What is disappointing though is the poor way in which Outlook manages images in the signatures and again in searching for a solution there were a lot of comments about how difficult it is to accomplish this well.

We use a 300dpi image for ours resized using fast image resizer - the image itself is hosted on our website and the email signatures contain a link and appropriate alt tags in case it doesn't show.

We send/receive images in emails and these days rarely are they stopped just outlook/email clients need the user to confirm its ok to download the picture via the link

if you copy it to a word document, does it look fuzzy?

Thanks for the replies.... The original image is fine if viewed in say Irfanview. If pasted to Word it is not quite as good but acceptable,if inserted into Outlook it is poor

what program was used to make the file, and also to reduce the size?

Try to open an original image (not resized) from a browser window, copy and paste it into word, then resize, and save. Then copy and insert into signature of outlook.

Thanks again for the reply... yes we tried that but to no avail. The best we have tried is Irfanview which has a resizing and autosharpening facility. Corel was used to create the file.
