    Keep in mind that this is a flash board, but we will still help, here is what you need to do. Set within Outlook that you want it in Rich Text instead of HTM. Then write your code. Steve Starr

    use netscape-communicator (messenger) or eudora!

    outlook is okay, but can´t show gifs or jpeg in the messagewindow. only as attachment.

    Tyis is actually untrue. Microsoft Outlook can set pretty much show anything. It is just a matter of tricking Microsofts product. What you need to do is add a signature to your email. In this signature is a few strands of HTML. What you need to do is make a live URL reference avalable for the image, or file. If you do not know how to do this, I can post the Code. Then give the coding a dDIV tag that will specify the height and width. This way it is basically opening up a transparent window within Outlook at the bottom of your page. Then jsut select your saved HTML file and add that as your signature. Hope this helps, Cheers, Steve

    This tells you how, as well as browser-specific issues to keep in mind:

    It's still alive... For some reason the link didn't cover the entire address, so just select the line of text, copy and paste in your browser:

    Steve, I'm not completely following you. Can you post the code involved.

    Thanks
