Question: Problem with html Signature in outlook 2003, when seen in plain/rich text.

It looks great in HTML,
I have also check inside the txt and rich signature files inside
:c/doc&set/%user%/programfiles/microsoft/signatures..etc
to make sure it looks good in those formats. and it would seem okay in those files.

When I open a new message to compose in outlook, it auto opens in html. when I change this
to rich text, there is an error>
it repeats my web address and also reveals and web address from my past company!

how is this hidden, and how can i remove it?

Thanks in advance.

I'm currenlty using Outlook 2003: Rich Text Format (Signature) w/Logo.

Problem 1:

When I reply to an email with HTML format, half of my signature gets cut off because of the logo. If I reply to Rich Text format email, it's fine.

Is there a way to set Outlook to automatically convert HTML or Plain Text emails in to RTF, when replying or forwarding.

Problem 2:

Since using Rich Text Format (Signature) w/Logo - I have users wanting to use HTML format so that when attaching files, all files line up on top.

I have to use RTF so that I can have the logo appear.

How do I achieve having the logo appear, have the attachments appear on top and reply/forward emails without cutting off the signature.

When I email multiple recipients and when the email returns to me from multiple senders. The print out of the email end's up shrinking the text. I believe it's because of the senders with HTML formated email.

How do I strip this form without having forward the email and changing the format to Plain Text?

Heyas,

I have Outlook 2003 and I have two problems:

1. When replying to HTML emails, my reply automatically becomes HTML formatted despite having set Outlook to create all new messages, forwards, and replies in Plain Text. What gives?

2. When replying to a Plain Text email, my signature is not automatically inserted. My signature is in Plain Text. What the..? But if I reply to a HTML email, it inserts my signature.

Any ideas?

When I send an email to several individually named recipients, some are able to see an embedded gif and some get it as plain text. Is there something I should change in my settings to avoid this? I am running Windows XP Pro and Outlook 2003. Thank you!!
 

Answer:Outlook 2003: HTML to Plain Text

If some are receiving it properly, then the problem is not at your end, the ones who are seeing it as plain text need to change their settings to allow HTML and to show images.

I'm a new user to Outlook 2003. My question is can I set up outlook somehow to automatically format my responses to be in HTML format, regardless of the format of the original email I received? I think this was an option in Outlook 2000, but I can't find that particular setting in 2003...

The reason I'd like to do this is because my signature is automatically placed in every reply, but in responses to plain text messages the signature looks very...plain.

A different but related subject - if I were to set up email messages to NOT automatically insert a signature, can I then insert the signature on my own? In Outlook 2000 I could go to "Insert" and select a signature, but there is not signature option in the Insert pull down menu in 2003 emails.

Thanks.

Am using Vista Home Premium and Outlook 2003.

Sometimes, but not always (even during the same send/receive) Outlook 2003 converts incoming HTML email to plain text. This has been happening on and off for the last three weeks.

Outlook options are set to NOT convert to plain text and to use Outlook as email editor, with html for new messages. There are no add-ins or com options installed.

Like I said, this doesn't happen all the time, but does happen every time from one particular address. I've check with him and all other people sent the same email received it OK.

Am also using Avira Antivir for email virus scans.

Help would be appreciated!

Answer:Outlook 2003 sometimes converts incoming HTML email to plain text

DearNick,

I wondered whether you'd had any luck with your problem as I have exactly the same. The email that converts to plain text is always a gmail account and if I read the mail through my secure webmail account, I don't have the problem.

Did you manage to sort out the problem?

Hi, I haven't found an answer to this yet, so I'm opening another thread.

I'm using Outlook 2003 in Win 7, and occasionally emails arrive (from gmail and hotmail accounts) that should be HTML but have been converted to plain text, with all the background HTML code (makes for long messages) and none of the pictures or graphics the sender sent.

It happens occasionally - mail from the same source sometimes comes through as HTML, and sometimes is converted to plain text and un-readable.

The Read All Standard Mail In Plain Text cb has always been clear; I don't have any add-ins installed; don't have AVG installed (I don't have any anti-virus programs installed at the moment).

Anyone have any other ideas I can try?

I have my default email format set to .html. When I compose a new message it looks like everything's working just fine. I send my .html message and even in my sent box, it shows that my .html message formatted properly. However, when others open my messages, they have been converted to plain text. I've checked my office-mates computers and they do not have the setting "convert incoming messages to plain text" so that can't be the problem. I've tested it with 5 people using Outlook who can receive .html messages just fine. I've tested it with my Yahoo address to. For some reason, Outlook is converting my .html (and Rich Text too) email messages into plain text. Everyone else in the office sends and receives html email with a nicely formatted signature just fine. Why can't I? Please help!

I'm running Windows XP with Office 2003 SP 2.

Thanks,
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2003 Bug - html outgoing emails converted to plain text

Do you have any anti-virus software running on the PC? Some antivirus software may install an Outlook add-in that may convert the message to plain text to avoid spreading of viruses. Check under your "Add-Ins" and disable them all to see if one of the add-ins is causing the problem. If you are on an Exchange server the admin may have also disabled this functionality.

Rollin

Is it possible to have Outlook pick a signature to use based on the email style formatting (HTML or Plain Text)?

For example if it was HTML the company logo will show, if it isn't the company name will be written in plain text.
 

Answer:Outlook Signatures for Plain Text and HTML

Yes, it generates 3 different files. <signature name>.htm, <signature name>.rtf, and <signature name>.txt. The appropriate file is used depending on the format of the message you send. Check %appdata%\Microsoft\Signatures.

Answer:Outlook 2010 html appearing as plain text

I'm using Outlook 2010 64bit as my client to my Hotmail account. On my previous computer, I had the same setup only 32 bit Outlook 2010 and it worked fine. On my new build, some but not all, HTML emails are being rendered as plain text. It seems to be more common if the client is running as opposed to starting the client. The emails are not specific to any sender and the weird thing is that I can move those emails that aren't rendering correctly to a temp folder in Outlook, sync with Hotmail, go to the Hotmail web interface and move those emails back to the inbox from the temp folder, resync and they show up rendered as HTML in my Outlook client. That tells me that it isn't the emails themselves. I have found no other way for Outlook to recognize these emails as HTML once they have been opened in the client. Weird no?

I'm trying to resolve a problem for a client who is using Outlook 2000. They use the HTML format in their emails as they have a nifty signature and use other HTML options. They also print these emails. When they print, the formatting of the email is different from what is on the screen. Once I switch the email to plain text, the onscreen appearance resembles the printout, but the signature is also converted leaving a mess. There is no line wrapping on the printout (in HTML mode) either and some parts are printed off the page.
Thanks for any advice.

My office recently upgraded to Office 2007. By default, Outlook is configured to convert all incoming messages to plain text. This is a setting that we do not have the rights to change. However, when we used to have Outlook 2003 all the emails that were originally in HTML format could be converted back to HTML once we opened up the email and verified it was a trusted email. There was simply a "convert this to HTML" option that would show up somewhere in the header. This is no longer the case in Outlook 2007.

I can't for the life of me figure out how to convert the text to HTML on INCOMING emails. Outgoing isn't a problem. I've even tried editing the incoming email or forwarding it and then converting to html but it doesn't display properly. Any images that were in the email can only be viewed one at a time by clicking directly on the picture link, but not with the rest of the email.

Any ideas?

Hello folks,

I hope there may be a simple answer that I'm overlooking and perhaps you can help.

I have a customer who has received an HTML Newsletter that he needs to forward to co-workers. He wants to copy one section of the newsletter and paste it into a new email.

When he does this, though, what gets copied into the new message *looks* like it's HTML (Arial font, 10pt) but is straight text. No hyperlinks whatsoever.

He is currently set to HTML and not using Word as an editor. We have tried RTF, HTML, text and nothing works (text copies the hyperlinks all written out)

Ironically enough, I talked with him today and he has said that now it's actually working intermittently. He can copy the section into a new email and it'll copy fine then literally seconds later he'll try to do it again and it won't work.

Does anyone have ideas??
Thanks!

Answer:Outlook 2003 - pasting HTML as text

Hi and welcome.

Just a long shot here, but maybe he is not copying the text completely, thus leaving out some of the HTML code in the process?

I would suggest that you try doing this.

Highlight and copy the message text.
Run NOTEPAD
Paste it into NOTEPAD
Check to see what it looks like
Copy it back into the new message

Since I do not know what the contents of these sections are, such as are there graphics involved or what, it&#8217;s a little hard to tell what might be happening. The above is assuming that it is pure HTML text that he is copying. Naturally, Notepad will not copy graphics over or anything like that.

You could also have him right click on the message, view source, and then have him save the source in a text file to examine it&#8217;s contents to see if something is foul in the message too.

I know it&#8217;s not a solution, but a few suggestions.

Thanks!

Could someone explain to me in simple terms what exactly HTML is in the context of Outlook Express 6 using XP ?In my hobby of Genealogy I send and receive a lot of files as attachments, text, photos and charts. I am irratated by those who send me an E-Mail in reply with their attachment as an Icon in the Subject column at the head of the mail and the same thing is repeated in the body of the message. Whether this add times to download the Mail I do not know. I now hang my head in shame as I have just realised that is exactly as I have been sending as a Mail to them ! So going into OE>Tools>Options I see I have the chance to change the basis of outgoing mail from HTML to Plain Text and when I do this the Send Picture With Message automatically greys out. It seems logical to me I should alter the option to Plain Text but I am not sure if it will affect anything other than the bells and whistles of HTML, whatever they might be.Thanks for any advice.

Answer:What is HTML versus Plain Text

As you have realised, HTML is with all the fancy bits on, plain text is just that. Even though you cannot send pictures with the message, you can still send them as attachments.Note: if your recipient has his machine set up as plain text, it doesn't matter how fancy and decorated you send your message - it will be received plain thus, you would be wasting all your efforts.Most businesses are set to receive in plain text to lessen the possibility of virus transmission.I always have mine as plain text and sent anything else as an attachment which can then, if necessary, be easily virus checked at the other end before opening.Brian

Hi everyone

I've recently created an html signature file for an Outlook Express 6 signature and have specified in Tools/Options that it should be added to both new and reply messages.

It works perfectly for NEW messages but the image is not there when I create REPLY messages (showing a box with a red cross instead). I can't get why it would work on one and not the other and have found nothing in my web searches to explain this.

I created the html file with the Nvu program and have placed a copy of the image in question (.jpg) in the Outlook Express Stationery folder.

I wonder if anyone has any ideas on this problem they would be willing to share. Thanks in advance for your time.

Cheers
Mazarita
 

Answer:Outlook Express 6 HTML Signature Problem

Just a wild guess: are you replying in the same text that the sender sent? See if you are sending/replying in plain text, rich text, or html text. I'm not sure off the top of my head where to find this, but it should be in your settings somewhere. I use Thunderbird, so in Outook Express, I'm not sure where it will be, exactly. Hope this helps.

Hi,

Environment:
My outlook 2003 default format is HTML. The Default fond for new/reply messages is Arial.

The Problem:
I get a message in text format. When I manually change the format of this message to HTML, the font of the message is Times Roman.

How can I make outlook automatically use the default font (Arial) as the font for messages changed from text to HTML ?

Thanks,
Ron.

Hello.

I haven't worked with Word scripts before and don't really know if this is possible, but from what I've read it should be.

Basically, I use a plain text editor when I write on my phone on the go, where I use HTML tags to indicate formatting like this:

Normal text <i>text I want italic,</i> some more normal text

Is it possible to create a script that makes words between <i> tags italic and then remove the tags? (same for <b> for bold and <u> for underlined text) and how would I record or write one?

And also, can I use one to remove blank lines?

I use Word 2010
 

Answer:Word macro to format plain text using HTML tags

I imagine you could write a macro to that checks this and does the appropriate action.

You will however have to establich the codes you will be using.

I don't know if there will be a conflict when you open word and depending upon the layout <i> might be interpreted before the macor runs, but I think it's a aquestion of trial and error,

<i> </i>
<b> </b>
<u> </u>
<rmv> </rmv>
etc...

Answer:Outlok 2003/SP3 - In-mail always Plain Text

Update on this.

Other forums pointed the finger at AVG8. After some trouble (had to reinstall AVG to be able to deactivate e-mail certification) I eliminated that.

I had a Rule in Outlook to send unwanted mail to Outlook's Junk E-mail folder - these were the ones beilng changed.

When I created my own folder and changed the Rule to match it was OK.

It now looks like irrespective of whether you tick the box or not, Outlook changes the view to Plain text on anything it puts in the Junk folder.

Hi ,I have my signature as a BMP file and i want to insert it as text into the body of the email. This is required for all my banking transactions where a signature is needed on the email itself and on the body of the email as opposed to being an attached file.Every time i go to do it the body of the email says "signature.bmp" which is offcourse the filename but it doesn't mean anything. I can offcourse attach it as BMP file but then it is a separate attachment as a signature only. The banks will not accept this.i tried to do it under the signature provision but it states that i am unable to do it because i don't have "ActiveX" settings activated in outlook 2003I don't know whether it will work anyhow because the signature block is a BMP file and it could very well go into the body of the email when settings are changed just simply as signature.bmp and no signature being the actual signature in the body of the emaili was able to do this with Outlook 2000 easily but not with Outlook 2003!!!Any help/Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hey All!

Quick question....I've created a signature in Outlook 2003 with Arial 12 Italic Navy and it shows up choppy. When the email is sent though, it looks fine on the receiving end. Even when it is sent to the same email address and pulled up, it looks fine. My boss is a stickler when it comes to these things and I have to find a way to fix it. Does anyone know how to make the signature look better on the originated email?

Thanks in advance!

Hey everyone i have a few users that are having a certain problem with their signatures within outlook 2003.. We set all our clients to HTML when creating/replying/forwarding a new email.. So when they create their signature everything is single spaced but when they use the signature it comes through as double spaced.. just the signature though.. have tried different fonts and sizes but it stays the same.. Now when we change it to Rich Text - it works fine - no double space or anything - but then they lose the ability to have images in their signature (i know i know.. who cares) any ideas?

The systems are all running these
-Windows XP SP1
-Office 2000
-Outlook 2003 (since we have the lisence for exchange 2003 and windows 2003 we get outlook 2003 along with it)
-Norton Anti-virus 8


Nothing else really special..

The email server is running Exchange 2003 and the clients are configured for RPC over HTTPS for email.
 

Answer:Outlook 2003 Signature Problem

When they make the signature have them hold down the SHIFT key when hitting enter. This will make the line a break and not a paragraph.

I'm using Outlook 2003. Sometimes, when I reply to or forward a message, the format changes from "HTML" or "rich text" to "plain text", thus losing all colour and font information.

Does Outlook have an option to prevent this?
 

Answer:Outlook switches to plain text

The format is based on the senders options in the received email.

Remember that if the sender has chosen plain text, even if you respond in HTML it will probably be stripped out at their end.

I am asking this on behalf of a friend. She says:

I am running Windows XP on a stand alone PC. I have recently bought and installed Office XP Professional.

Until now I have used Outlook Express for all my e-mail. I now would like to use Outlook 2002, but find when I send a message that was composed in HTML, it converts it to plain text. They are still in HTML in the 'Sent Folder' but are always received in Plain Text. I have tested this by sending to myself and to several others, who normally would receive HTML messages from me.

I have checked all the settings...Tools/Options/Mail Format Tab...'Compose in this Message Format'...HTML etc.

I have used Detect and Repair, and have Re-Installed Office. I would really appreciate any suggestions.
This has got me stumped. Does anyone have any suggestions to try?
 

Answer:Outlook 2002 Converts To Plain Text

It kinda happens to me too. Some messages I get in HTML, others i get in text - which were suposed to be in HTML.
I have a theory that it's because that HTML onces have something like this in front of them
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

And the html onces that show up like text don't.
Perhaps it's because only programs that make HTML emails can get though as HTML.

Anyone else have any idea's on this?

My dad recently got a new laptop to replace his five year old beast. On that five year old beast is thousands upon thousands of very important business emails and legal documents. Naturally, he needs to have access to these emails.

Due to his concerns about getting his new laptop up and running, I didn't get to do the logical thing and transfer his old emails and settings over to his new laptop before he started using it. Now, it's been over a month and his new laptop is quickly accumulating new piles of vital emails.

I need to find a way for him to read his old emails quickly and easily.

He uses Microsoft Outlook. I've got the original computer with all the emails on it as well as his new computer. Can I import his old email into Outlook on his new computer without losing any of his new email or overwriting his new settings? Failing that, is there a way for me to view his emails, as saved by Outlook in .dbx files, in plain text?

Note: this isn't a situation where I can just try something and hope it works. My dad's a lawyer and losing a single email can be roughly equivalent to the end of the world. So I'm not going to do anything experimental like trying to import his old emails just to see if it works unless someone knows for sure that it will.
 

Answer:Read emails in plain text without Outlook

Ah I was going to aim you at a small app that was free but now costs $5 called DBExtract as it will do exactly what you need.

it recovers the emails into a text file, sadly leaves the header and footer info ( email server info etc in the text file )


Worth a look at the app anyhow, their maybe an older free version still knocking around on the net.

Hello there, hope you can help.

I am running WIn98 (Dont laugh!! lol) and Outlook Express and I have quite a few Yahoo Groups that I run where members can send me email from.

The problem is that I want to be able to have the option of reading any email that arrives in my Outlook Express box as a plain text file, the reason for this is as you know, viruses etc can travel in so many forms and this would be easier for me do without the disadvantage of possible attacks.

I thought it would be as easy as a Read As Plain Text in the Read option but I dont appear to have one.

If it's not possible that way, is there a add on for Outlook Express that will do the job.

All the best.

Is there a way to set Outlook (2002) to send Plain Text Emails through a certain account?

I monitor an email group using Outlook 2000 for applcation support here at the office. Sometimes when I respond to an email that was sent by another user, and also replay to the group server, the main group server rejects it and says I am not sending plain text. I do have Outlook set to send pain text. Under "Options" "Mail Format" I have "plain text" selected. When this happens it is when I am responding to an email that someone else has sent to the group. His email was accepted by the server so it was obviously "Plain text", but something is happening when I reply to it that adds something to convert it from plain text, or at least the email server thinks it is no longer plain text. (This is a private group, and not a Yahoo group or such as that). Does anyone have a clue as to what might be happening here?

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2003 HTML email problem

It depends on the incoming email that you are copying the text from. Not all of them come in as HTML it depends on the senders email format. If it comes in a splain text replying to it will go out as plain text, same goes for copying a massage with formatting other than HTML.

I created a first event in my Calendar and invited myself (personal domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is a proper iCal invitation.

I have created a signature in Adobe Illustrator. I had a .ai file and i used the slicer to slice my image so i could have hyperlinks.

I then saved the file for web and it converted it into multiple images and an html file.

I now want to use this html file and the corresponding images as my signature in Outlook 2013. I have tried placing it in the AppData/Microsoft/Signatures folder as recommended by several tutorials but i am unable to view it when i insert the signature into the email.

How can i go about doing this?

Regards,

AMK

Outlook 2007 has begun to behave strangely.

Plain text messages received do not display in the font selected in Tools>Options>Mail Format>Stationery & Fonts>Composing and reading plain text messages

These incoming messages are suddenly displaying in a smaller font, Time New Roman 10 (or some paragraphs Tahoma 10) even though the more readable default font Consolas 10.5 is still set there.

No changes to font and size in that dialogue have any effect at all on *received* plain text messages (but new *created* messages respond to changes made in the dialogue)

Created plain text messages correctly use Consolas 10.5 or any other setting when selected, the problem is only received plain text messages.

Anyone have a clue?

I have been using Office 2007 since, well, 2007 or so. Suddenly, the font size I see when composing a plain text e-mail in Outlook is huge. This started around 2 weeks ago. At first I thought it was a problem with my Windows 7 Theme. But I reverted to the default theme and I still see this. I am baffled why this started happening and how to make it stop. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Hello guys, I am running a consulting firm, and I really need to be able to send emails from my Lumia phone with HTML style email signature as I have social icons + disclaimer nicely formatted. However, I couldn't find any solution how to add this HTML signature to Outlook mobile app. I am using Outlook.com email service for my personal emails where I can switch RTF, HTML or just a regular text. Is there any way around or Microsoft must fix it, so business people can use Outlook app? Many thanks.

I've seen this issue on other postings but have not seen the answer yet.

I have Vista, Outlook 2007 and Office 2003.

1. I have been trying to send an email merge (works fine on my other XP machine with office 2003) in HTML. I can send a merge in text, but the HTML option yields nothing. I purchased outlook 2007 because Msft Mail was not working either. I am about to throw out outlook 2007 and try to downgrade to outlook 2003 to see if this option works as it does on my XP machine. Any ideas before I totaly frustrate my wife by reloading her software again?

2. When the "text' email merge is initiatied, I get a message for each mail that asks me to accept that another program is trying to send an email. This seems to happen for each email which could really be a problem for several hundred emails. I have tried turning off the firewall but the box still appears. This whole Vista thing is making me crazy. I have to reconfigure my outlook 2003 and transfer the list of names and the word doc to my xp laptop just so I can send the mail merge. What is the setting to turn this off?

I am wondering why I paid for Vista, and the Oulook 2007 sw. Sorry, just frustrated. This should not be so difficult.

I am a musician who uses the 'rich text document' program for lyrics to songs.The margins are set to allow as much text on one page as possible but thatisn't the issue. The issue is; I double space the lyrics so I can use the line between the lyric for (letter) chordsymbols over the word I want for the chord change. example: G D7 1. BENEATH THE CROSS OF JESUS, I GLADLY TAKE MY STAND G THE SHADOW OF A MIGHTY ROCK, WITHIN A WEARY LAND C A HOME WITHIN THE WILDERNESS, A REST UPON THE WAY G D7 FROM THE BURNING OF THE NOONTIDE HEAT, AND BURNING OF G G+ THE DAY.everything looks good in print review but when I print it out the chord symbolsdon't match the word beneath by 2 to sometimes 4 spaces.Is this something between the text and the printer or somehow am I not using R.T.D.correctly?Thanks for your time.Mike:0)

Answer:Problem with Rich Text Document program

It might be because your using a font with a variable width. In other words, an i is going to be narrower then other letters, and letters like w or m are going to be wider. Try changing it to a fixed width font like courier.

Hi all,

Is it possible to have different font sizes for the text of an email and the signature that you have added? I have tried using a file with the signature formatted how I want (smaller than the text) but the default changes it when I compose an email to the same as the rest of the text. I know I could change this manually each time - is there any way to have it happen automatically?

Thanks,
 

Answer:Outlook Express signature and text - different fonts?

See if you are using HTML, Plain Text or Rich Text? My guess is you are in Plain Text so the format that you applied in your "signature" isn't being applied - if you switch to Rich Text or HTML, I think you will see your signature as you intend it to look.

Hello, I am having trouble putting in a bmp picture on my signature in Outlook 2002. I works sometimes but other times I get a red x or symbols where the picture should be.
When I attempt to set it up it works, after a few attemts to send email the picture turns into a red x or symbols.

I have it set to html
It does not use Microsoft Office Word 2003 to edit email messages, cause I am using Office 2002 and Outlook 2003.

This works for some people but not everyone. Using Win XP
I have attempted to copy paste into signature. I attempted to insert. I attempted to go to advance edit and save it and still would not work. Google this problem and couldn't find any answers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
 

Answer:Signature in Outlook 2003

Sup !
Have you tried using Word as the editor. After saving the signature, the image can be converted to something word can manage and outlook as well.
Other option can be to convert the image to JPG or GIF, less space, more compression, sometimes outlook can manage better this images.

Hi,

My outlook 2003 started acting crazy. The signature preview in "tools>options>mail format>signature" gave the message "unable to view or edit this signature". I even tried to add a new signature, but no use. I then unistalled and reinstalled office 2003. No use. Then I deleted the profile and created a new one. Now, I can preview the signature but it is not displaying in the emails. The signature has been selected for new msgs, replies and fwds. Also when I recieve emails with my company logo, it does not show the logo. The MS-Word is selected as default editor.

Please help me with this. I've struggling for 3 days now. Thanking you in advance.

I need Help! I am currently running Outlook 2003 on XP Professional 5.1.2006. Before my useless IT guy upgraded me, (apologies to all the great IT people out there!) I had a signature with small pictures in it. Now all I have is small red boxes with the file names.
I have tried eveything in MS Outlook help to try and fix this but nothing works.
I receive emails with pictures in them - no problems - just can't send these!
Any suggestions?
 

Answer:Signature Help please! Outlook 2003

The location (ie the full path name) to your pictures has been changed or the pictures have been deleted/moved.
You need to locate the pictures and modify your Outlook signature to point to their current location.

I have set up different signatures for each of 4 accounts I use in Outlook 2003. Whenever I create a new outgoing email, the email is always set to come from my default account and then puts in that account's signature. Even when I then use the "Accounts" button to change which account I want to send the message from, I still need to erase the [default] signature and manually drop in the correct signature via the "Signature" button. If every new email is always going to automatically come from the default account and always puts in that signature, what is the point of associating a signature with an account? Does that setting only help for replies and forwards? Is there no way to have Outlook automatically choose the account to send from (and, then, it's signature) by seeing whcih accounts mail folder is in the browsing pane?

Thanks

A couple weeks ago I started receiving the following pop-up Microsoft Office Outlook window when receiving email. It's not all email... but most of them:

The Signature "(None)" could not be located. The signature may have been removed.

Outlook 2003 will not check for new mail after 6 or 7 of these windows open. Once I close them all is well until the next batch of emails arrive.

I'm running Windows XP Home, Bitdefender antivirus/firewall, and Microsoft Office 2003 suite.

Any thoughts?
