    I recently purchased my business card in a jpg file so I can use it in an
    automated signature. I do Tools>Options>Signatures>File>Browse and insert
    the file with my e-card. When I go to create a new email, all that appears
    instead of my card is ÿØÿà. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

    Copy the following HTML file and give it a meaningful name with an extension
    of HTML. Edit it with your personal details and save it. In Windows Mail go
    to Tools > Options > Signatures Tab > New > File at the bottom and Browse to
    the full path name of your HTML file, then apply/OK your way out. Make sure
    you save the code and the image in the same folder. You can look at it
    offline but it is best to send an email to yourself to make sure it looks

    <table width="100%" border=0 cellpadding=15 cellspacing=0>
    <td valign=top width="14%" align=left>
    <TABLE width="100" border=0>
    <img src="C:\my pics\mypic.jpg">
    <B><font face="verdana, arial, helvetica" size=2 color=blue>
    <td valign=top width="86%">
    <B><font face="brush script" color=blue size=5>
    Jean and William Smith<BR>
    <font face="verdana, arial, helvetica" color=black size=2>

    Thanks for the suggestion, but when I copy all that file below your email and
    try to paste it in a folder, it won't let me. What program am I supposed to
    be doing the editing in? I have my card already in a jpg, I was hoping I
    could just insert that and my card will appear below where my signature used
    to.....any ideas about that?

    How big is the JPG file? If it's bigger than about 4 KB, Windows Mail
    won't let you use it as a signature file directly.

    Also, are the messages you're trying to add this signature to in the Rich
    Text (HTML) format? If not, you're likely to have trouble using a JPG
    file as a signature.
