I'm looking for a way to include a picture in my signature on e-mails sent from Outlook (not Outlook Express). Would also like to make the picture a hyperlink. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks, kniht. This was actually for the Exec. Director of a non-profit for which I do some volunteer computer work. My e-mail client is OE, so couldn't try it without changing my client to Outlook, but the foundation uses Outlook (and, BTW, Office 2003, which is what the article was written for). Will follow up on how we do.

P.S. I actually tried doing essentially this with OE (before seeing the MS article) and when I tried to put the signature into an e-mail, got an error message that the file was "too big", to "please make it smaller", and the picture was gone (only had the picture holder, no picture). I created the file in Word by inserting a picture and writing in some Lucida Calligraphy text around it, and saved it as a .htm file. The file is only 4KB and I don't know how to make it smaller than that. This leads me to believe that OE will not tolerate ANY signature file that's more than a few lines of text. Is that right?

But please be aware that most businesses (at least the many I deal with) nowadays strip out HTML to plain text for security reasons, so the picture may never be seen...

This is true. I myself have both incoming and outgoing mail set to plain text.
