    I am trying to create a standard signature for our company, and it works fine on my PC, but when I try to set it up on a colleagues PC I get the following message "an active X control on this page may be unsafe." (the dialogue box is headed up 'Internet Explorer' even though this is in Outlook) And the image is then replaced with a red X.

    Anyone know whats causing this, or how to get over it?

    PS, if I send the email to my computer (which has no problems) I get a red X too.


    Help!


    Thanks
    Geraint

    The red X sounds like a missing image file.

    Are you/do you have a <img> tag in the signature? If so, you will have to attach whatever file is referenced in the src property.

    Thanks for the reply.
    It turned out that I have to check the 'use Word as your email editor' check box. I think this is because the image is embedded in a word file.

    BUT I dont want to use this, as it limits us to use word for emails, but sometimes we dont want to use word (Ie our purchasing software)

    so the plot thickens

    You can send HTML emails through email clients.

    This way, the image would appear as an attachment in the email, and you would show that image with the following code.

    HTML Code:
    <img src="file.extension" width="x" height="y" alt="text for screen readers" />
    Just depends when you can do it without using Word.
