    Can one use HTML file to create a motion signature. One was able to do it up until Outlook 2007.

    Like... a signature that moves?

    I think even if I did know how to do that (which I don't), it wouldn't be very nice to all the recipients out there to teach anybody how to create one. With great power comes great responsibility... smile

    Then again, I know people who cram GIFs into their emails, just to annoy us...

  • Anthony Lenzo

    @NanoGeek,,,,not large gifs/jpegs. ....Yes if get large ones it does get annoying

    Ah, I see... Thought it was like those emails, where they try to slow down your page till you die watching the frames go by...

  • Anthony Lenzo

    Yes unless the scroll to high number i.e. 80 and it will load up quickly.

  • Lowell Heddings

    Yeah, from all my research just now, the marquee tag is no longer supported since Outlook 2007.

    And the majority of the world rejoices at that fact. I'd probably just delete any emails that had animated stuff in them.
