How can I embed an image into a html email signature?

I don't just want to have an absolute link to the image. I want to have the image embedded within the email so I do not have to rely on images being downloaded?

What email client are you using?

The image has to be attached to the email and encoded which is done by the client.

You should note though, if you do this I have found the chance of the emails being flagged as spam go drastically up and every email sent out like that appears as an email with a file attachment in the receivers box which some people get annoyed with. Also, if the receiving part has force to plain text enabled they wont see it anyway

Paul-B - Thanks for the reply and advice. Could you explain how it is done using Outlook 2003 and 2007. Many thanks

From the Menu Bar at top click Tools > then from the drop-down select Options > when the options dialog comes up click the Mail Format Tab > 80% of the way down on that tab is a button for Signatures..., click that and on there you can create a new signature and if you look in the editing area below to the right you should see not only the Link button but the Image button for embedding an image into it.

Sorry Paul-B. I mean't to ask for Outlook 2010. When I send an email via my outlook 2010 with the email signature back to the same account it does not have any image attachments, however if I send to my Mac with Mail it does show images as attachments.

Also the main issue that I am trying to solve is when I send an email that is received by a blackberry it does not show the images and shows the image path link instead. How can I solve this?

When you go to Options > and click the "Mail Format" tab at the top make sure "Compose in this Format" is set to "HTML"
