Hi,

Has anyone done a signature with formatted html background images?

I can't believe that Outlook is still limited in that area!

Thanks,

Looking at my own Outlook 2010, and some emails from clients using Outlook 2010, I think the only thing you can do is to add a picture to your signature.

That's what I mean. I created the html with background images. I cannot have the image inside the signature as it is supposed to be in the background and the text on top of it.

You need to make an image with your signature as part of the image. Then just include the image as signature. There is no way to put the image behind the text signature.

So this proves that MS Outlook 2010 does not support HTML. It barely accepts some basic HTML with no styles or images.

That's right.  It doesn't fully support it as it renders the HTML using Word!

It's the bible when it comes to using html as emailed content.
