    Outlook Signature (WXpHe Off2003)

    I have a very annoying grey box which appears in my signature before I transmit the e-mail. The receipient does not see it though. Can anybody shed light on why this happens please?

    Is there any trace of this box when you edit your signature (from the Mail Format tab of Tools | Options...)?

    Can you post the HTML source of your signature? You can't post an HTML file in the Lounge, but you could zip it and attach the Zip archive, or print from Notepad to PDF.

    Re: Outlook Signature (WXpHe Off2003)

    Hi Stephen, I'm not sure that is the relevant code. It has a lot of boilerplate, but not, for example, "Best Wishes". There is an image reference that might not have any purpose; you could try deleting it:

    <code><![if !vml]>[img]ATBSL_files/image002.jpg[/img]<![endif]></code>

    If that doesn't help, could you hunt around for the missing part? Perhaps it is not in a signature file, but is in a form or template.
