    Hi "mg",

    I had the same problem, but now have my scanned signature "inserted" into
    E-Mails perfectly, thanks to the following, thanks to Steve Cochran:

    "Copy this code:

    <HTML>
    <BODY>
    <IMG src="file://c:\myimages\myimage.jpg">
    </BODY>
    </HTML>

    and paste it into a new Notepad window. Edit the src value to represent the
    full path to the image you saved. Then save the file and give it an htm
    file extension. Then click on the file to open it and verify that the image
    is displayed (if its not, then the path to the image in the src is incorrect
    and you will need to fix it).

    Then use that file in OE as your signature for HTML formatted messages (it
    will not work for plain text).

    steve "

    Good Luck.

    Hi Andy,
    Thanks but I can´t make it work...
    I can´t save as html - only as txt....
    and I´m not sure what you mean by "src value" - (I´m danish and not super in
    it-language!)

    Hello again "mg".

    You're Danish? I'd never have guessed it from your competance with the
    English language!

    : Hi Andy,
    : Thanks but I can´t make it work...
    : I can´t save as html - only as txt....

    First you save your photo in the usual way, as jpg or .gif, etc. I'm sure
    you've done that already.
    Next you Copy and Paste the code into Notebook.

    : and I´m not sure what you mean by "src value" - (I´m danish and not super
    in it-language!)

    Then, in Notebook you edit (change) the "src value". That is, you look at
    the line <IMG src="file://c:\myimages\myimage.jpg"> and DELETE everything
    after //c:\, but retain the quotation marks.
    Replace with the exact path to where you stored your picture. For
    example, in my case I would type in Documents and Settings\Andy\My
    Documents\ My Pictures\Airbus 320.jpg. Be sure you get the whole path. (If
    you're not sure how to get the path to your saved picture, go to where you
    stored the picture, right click on the file (Icon) of the picture and click
    PROPERTIES | GENERAL | LOCATION.)

    Still in Notebook, click SAVE AS.
    If, in the Save As window you see .txt in the File Name box, delete it.
    Type in the name that you're giving to your signature file (for example
    Sigfile 1), and give it an .htm extension. Now SAVE it where you can find
    it again and use it to prepare your signature.

    It's a good idea now to check that the path was correct. Go to where you
    saved the .htm file and open it. Your photo signature should be displayed.
    If not, recheck the path.

    (To set up your signature open OE INBOX, click TOOLS | OPTIONS | SIGNATURES
    | NEW | you will see "Signature#1. You can RENAME it if you wish. Select
    FILE | BROWSE to your .htm file and click on the file | OPEN | APPLY | OK.)

    To use the signature: In OE \ NEW MESSAGE click in the message area. This
    is where your signature will appear.
    Click INSERT | SIGNATURE. You will see Signature #1 or whatever you renamed
    it. Click on that and your signature picture will appear.

    Good Luck.
    Andy I. P.S. It takes much longer to read these instructions than to
    do the actual job!

    Hi Chuck,

    I guess that you are unaware that the verb "guess" can be transitive.
    Below you will see the definition (#2) and an example of its use
    ("...guessed the answer").

    I used it in that way (... guessed it...), "it" being the fact that
    "mg" is Danish.
    Your criticism is quite uncalled for in this NG, apart from being
    ill-informed.
    Unlike your first post, mine was an attempt to be helpful, and my last
    one was intended to be complementary.

    Andy I.


    guess (gs)
    v. guessed, guess·ing, guess·es
    v.tr.
    1.
    a. To predict (a result or an event) without sufficient information.
    b. To assume, presume, or assert (a fact) without sufficient
    information.
    2. To form a correct estimate or conjecture of: guessed the answer.
