    I have a Chinese signature in jpg file format.
    I need step by step instructions to include it as one of my signatures in
    WLM.
    I do not know anything about programming since my DOS days, more than 20
    years ago.
    So, I need simple and precise instructions. Thank you.

    Thank you.
    It does not work for me.
    I need more precise step by step instructions.
    i.e. where do I copy and paste the code given ?
    I tried Tools > Options > Signatures > New > copy/paste into Text box.
    Obviously, I was wrong.

  3. You don't need as much code as Winston gave you. This will do

    <DIV><IMG src="C:\folder\sig.jpg"></DIV>

    Be sure to use the full path name to the image file.

    Paste into Notepad. Then File, Save As and save to an HTML file (e.g.
    my-sig.html). You can save the file wherever you like.

    Then in WLM at signatures specify that you are using the above file.

    Thank you Winston and Michael, and others who had tried to help me on this
    matter.
    It just does not work out.
    I am ditching the attempt.
    Thanks again.

    You must post in html format to use a graphic and html signature file.
    Fyi..using Html also increases the size of your message(a reason why many of us post in plain text).
