I think every mail reader acts differently.  Mac mail does not give you the ability to embed html code like an html email.  And you would have to have the images stored on a server like an html email.  What you are doing now is sending the image along with the mail so it comes over as an attachment.

Mail can use html signatures but doesn't have as easy tools to make it as Outlook for example. But still it is relatively easy.

You have to make a simple html file that fetches your pictures from an open internet server. The html has to include your info and what ever you need to have in your signature.
Include all formatting, color, font etc in your file.

Keep in mind that some use a narrow message window, others use wide.

Test your html file in your browser like Safari.

Then there is a little trick to get the file in. Here is a very good description how to do it. It is easy if you follow the description: http://mydesignpad.com/create-a-html-email-signature-for-mac-os-x-mountain-lion-10-8/

Here is another description for this which has an example of a html that you can use as a starter file: http://matt.coneybeare.me/how-to-make-and-html-signature-in-apple-mail/

And still one more on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9CkPkXzcdY easy to follow.

I recommend that you look at all three to find out which way suits best your needs.

I have used html signature for years but without any images and it feels really nice. If for some reasons someone has block in their mail for such signatures, then it comes out as plain text.

Thanks  sigurarm.  That is a great find I will update myself!  I was partially right, you do have to have the images on your server but at least there is a way to embed html directly.  I wish apple made it easier to embed html in emails though.

Yes, true. It should not be too much a hassle for Apple to do I think. Glad you are both satisfied. This is totally worth the trouble and is quite easy after the first time (like so many other things).
