    Hi guys,

    I know that there is a way that you can sign an e-mail so that it is in everyone you send but I was wondering if you can put a picture in there to so its in everyone you send? If it can be done, would ya explain it as simple as possible for me??

    lisag hi...
    nope you can't put your picture in permanantly as a signature type thing... however you can put it on a background & save it as stationary.. reloading it as stationary ... the background will either be one single photo image if large or if its small it may tile... covering the screen one after the other.

    Thanks SavvyLady,

    Well shucks!

    I wanted to put the animated hummingbird thing in there, can it be animated or just a picture?

    You can do it using Outlook.

    - Open the picture file you want to use in Internet Explorer. Hit Ctrl-A to highlight it, then hit Ctrl-C to copy it to the clipboard.

    - Open Outlook and got to Tools > Options > Mail Format. In the 'Send in this message format' field, select HTML. At the bottom of the page click on the 'Signature Picker' button.

    - In the Signature Picker window, click on 'New'. Enter a name for the signature and click 'Next'.

    - In the 'Edit Signature' window hit Ctrl-V to paste the picture. Add text if you like and click 'Finish', 'OK', 'Apply', 'OK'

    And yes, you can use an animated picture.

    Hope you don't mind me popping in...

    Yes, you can have an animated picture on email stationery. After all, the stationery is just a webpage and that's where we see the animations.

    Just make sure that your picture is in the Stationery folder when you make your stationery page in outlook express (Message/New message using/Stationery -- have a play with the settings until you get what you want).

    Once you've made your page, go to Options in outlook express, click on the Compose tab and under the Stationery heading, put a check in the Mail box and browse to the stationery file that you just made. Click Ok and it will then always use that file when you create new messages.
