Hi Gang,

I modified someone else's animated signature. I have no idea what e-
mail program they created it in, but it works great when he sends to
me, but the copy I've manipulated for my own use won't work at all in
outlook (very frustrating). Can someone tell me what changes I need
to make to get this to work? Perhaps removing all styles or
something? The following is the HTML I'm trying to add as my
signature:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please don't, they are incredibly naff and no-one will think you are clever

you need the styles or a style sheet and possibly script code.

Hi Diane,

Thank you very much for the response. I don't know why I'd need the
style sheets or scripts, because this works fine in a normal web
browser without either. I'm using Outlook 2003, POP3/SMTP, Internet
Explorer 6.01 SP1, and Windows XP Pro SP2. I've tried to just use
<marquee> and that doesn't work either. Is there a stylesheet
equivalent to <Marquee>.

Thanks,
Christian

the marquee tag is depreciated and is not supported in outlook. You need to
do it using styles and possibly script.

Any luck with getting this to work? It'd be pretty cool if it did. I've
tried getting it work in Outlook 07, but it doesn't place nicely.

Thanks!

Animation like that has been removed from Outlook 2007, I believe.

Hi Christian

Not sure if you found your solution yet ... The Problem is MS Word ...
change your Email Editor in Outlook (Tools > Options > Mail Format > And
untick "Use Word As Email Editor"). Your Signatures will then move

Trust this helps.
