    Hi there,

    I have run into a huge problem. A client of mine wants to have a header and a footer that he can use as stationery through outlook. I have the 2 images designed already but am unsure how to set this up for him. Basically, he wants the header at the top (with html) then a space and a footer at the bottom. These images must also be able to resize themselves in accordance with the users screen etc. (If that makes any sense).

    If ANYONE can help me out, I'd really appreciate it. Have been searching the net all morning with no luck. :(

    Sam.

    Ay carumba. Don't you love assignments like this?

    Welcome to the forum Sam. :)

    If it were me, I'd create an HTML table with a row for the header, a row for the client to type in, and a row for the footer. That should be relatively simple to do and will give him an expanding amount of space to type, as opposed to guessing how much room he might need.

    But for the image resizing? I'm sure there are others who know better than me, but I'm not sure you can get there from here. Unless these are emails he's only sending internally, it's impossible to know what email client the users will use - they may not even SEE the picture based on how they have their settings configured. And that doesn't even begin to address people who just get their messages through their online email or on their phones. And Outlook 2007 completely changed the way Office used to deal with HTML and CSS, so that's fun too. In the HTML emails I've created, the images don't resize so if the window is too small you get a scroll bar. I'm ok with that, but if your client isn't, maybe you can send him this article. If nothing else, it might make him understand that it's not as easy as it seems like it should be. Good luck! (y)

    Hi Wendy and thanks for your reply.

    I gave it a go and it works fine on my computer (hooray!!!) although when I use it as stationery and send it out to an external address, the pictures are missing. Just red crosses where they should be. I'm guessing this has something to do with the html code so I will go back and have another look. Thanks so much though for your idea. I really appreciate it.

    :)

    Ok, I found out why the pictures weren't there when I sent the email. It's because Outlook 2007 doesn't automatically embed them. Followed this and it was all good:

    Add this value to the registry, and your images will be embedded:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\O utlook\Options\Mail]
    "Send Pictures With Document"=dword:00000001

    If you use Office 2003, the key is ...\office\11.0\... instead.

    Thanks again for your help though! Thankfully the problem is now fixed. :D
