Hello Experts -
I have a standard closing (technically it's called a "valediction") which is added at the bottom of all my emails. It reads as shown at the bottom of this textbox. The data shown is entirely fictitious, but the problem is not. It's simply my signature followed by a name and address. Further, the problem is not the particulars. It's the use of the signature.
It uses a non-standard font (actually a jpg) to spell out Gordon. It is followed by the address which uses a standard font that comes standard with Windows 7. I'm using Outlook 2010.
The problem is that most users are not going to see my signature because they have selected an option (I don't remember where) that requires the recipient to specifically give Outlook the okay to allow a small jpg containing my signature to be downloaded. I am trying to get around this requirement. My intentions are entirely honorable.
I know that it is possible because on occasion I have received messages that display small graphics (company logos) - and do so by somehow ignoring the requirement that permission be given in order to make it viewable.
Does anyone know how they do that? Is the image somehow pre-certified as being benign (and not potentially malicious)?
Thanks for your comments.
