Hi everybody!

I'm asking for your help because I don't know how to make an animated
signature in Outlook 2007 using a .HTM and a .GIF file.
The .GIF is the animated picture and the .HTM file contains all the settings
for the signature (text, text positioning etc...). It's in the .HTM file
where you fill all the information that appears on the signature. The .HTM
file was made with Word 9.
This signature worked in Outlook 2003 but now, I don't know how to make it
works in Outlook 2007.
How do you use .HTM & .GIF files to make a signature in Outlook 2007 ?

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your response.

I know that a .GIF doesn't work in Outlook 2007 but I hoped I could use a
..HTM with a .GIF that's why I wanted to know how to use an .HTM file in
Outlook 2007.

BTW - just drop the HTML into the Signatures folder on your hard drive and
set outlook to use that sig.
