Hi,

I was asked if it's possible to add a rotating email graphic to a signature.  

I fiddled around with it for a bit and tried different things, but it seems it's 'static' once created.

Is there a different cleaver way of making it happen though?

tnx

Did you try to create the signature with HTML and store this HTML file in the signature folder?

Excellent... that worked...   however...

Found an interesting tidbit...

First I renamed the graphic I have in my signature and it indeed changed but ONLY after restarting Outlook which for my use it's fine since my batch file to rotate the graphics runs on reboot.

However, if I instead changed the HTML file to point to a different graphics the change is imediate.   Odd it caches the graphic but not the html...

btw. the signature directory on Win7/Office 2010 is:

C:\Users\<yourid>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures\

tnx
