    Hi, just signed up with this site, looks like a great place!

    I don;t have a great deal of HTML knowledge, I'll get that stated upfront. I've just done a very basic html signature to insert into my emails. It's a simple 2 row, 100% width table done in dreamweaver.

    The problem is that when I insert it into emails (either by inserting the code directly, or using it as a signature file (from my machine or linked to my server)), it doesn;t display the background images at all. The will show up in the preview, and when I open it in thunderbird, but in any other email client or web based email client I've tried they just don;t show up.

    Does anyone have any ideas why this happens? or how to fix it? If anyone can help me out here I'd be very grateful.

    Also, is it possible to display the table set to the very base of the email window? the 100% width works fine, but I can't figure out how to align the table to the base.

    The code I've used is show bellow (I have tried several different versions, and originally had all the images linked from my server, but half of them didn;t show up in web clients, which is why they are now embedded).


    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"><style type="text/css">
    <!--
    body {
    margin-left: 0px;
    margin-top: 0px;
    margin-right: 0px;
    margin-bottom: 0px;
    }
    -->
    </style></head>

    <body>
    <table width="100%" border="0" align="Absolute Bottom" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <tr>
    <td height="169" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><div align="center"><a href="http://www.impakt-studios.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.impakt-studios.com/images/email_sticker.png" width="380" height="169" border="0" align="absmiddle" /></a></div></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td height="36" background="http://www.impakt-studios.com/images/email_banner_bg.png" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><div align="center"><a href="http://www.impakt-studios.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.impakt-studios.com/images/email_banner.png" width="381" height="36" border="0" align="absmiddle" /></a></div></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td height="36" bgcolor="#F4F6DA">&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </body>
    </html>




    Thanks for your time, and hope someone can help me out as I'm stumped!

    I just took your HTML copy and paste and tried it on my PC (IE6.0).
    Sent myself an email with the signature and it worked good? for me.

    See the attached screenshot. Is that what it's supposed to look like?

    You did the right thing by using absolute URL for your images.
    They need to referenced from your webhost server.

    If that's not what it's supposed to look like, you do a screenshot
    of the correct thing ... and show us what it should look like.

    thanks for looking at it. That's spot on (although they're transparent PNGS so not sure why they're displaying grey on yours). The background images (left and right bars of the main text area at the bottom) are displaying fine here. However they don;t show up on hotmail or gmail.

    I'll have to look into why/how they dispaly HTML differently then, what email client did you use by the way?

    thanks for helping out

    IE won't render PNG's as transparent. That's a problem with IE....
    not sure if they fixed that with IE7.0 or not?
