Default Can't see picture added to signature in new mail

Hi,

I need to create a signature in Outlook that has a picture with it.

I created the signature in Word, then viewed it in Outlook where you create
signatures and I could see the picture.

But when I create a new message the picture does not appear, only a red cross.

Please help!

Thanks,

Don't use Word. It adds size and an HTML sig must be under 4KB.

Open a New Message window and create your signature. Click the Source Tab.
(View | Source Edit if not already checked). Highlight the entire source
code and copy / paste into Notepad. File | Save As and in the File Name
field, save as an htm file, (i.e. Sig1.htm). It will be saved to My
Documents by default. Go to Tools | Options | Signatures. Click: File |
Browse and Insert your saved signature | Apply. You can rename it now if you
wish. Of course, if the recipient is reading in Plain Text, they won't see
it.

Wow thank you so much!

I was struggling for hours to do this. I should have just come and asked
here first.

Thank you again.
