Format of OL email "signature" changes upon sending

I have a longtime issue that for which I have never been able to find a solution.  My email "signatures"  appear just fine when they're at the bottom of a message I create (regardless of whether new, reply, or fwd).  But I notice that in most cases, when someone replys back to me that my signature went from single spacing (paragraph) to dbl-spacing.  It ends up making an email thread that goes back and forth a few times much longer than it should be.  Example:

This...

mailto:anthony.swatek@scrapyourtrip.com 
'Cuz life is a trip worth scrappin' ™ 

...ends up coming back looking like this when someone replies...

Tony Swatek, Vice President 

http://www.ScrapYourTrip.com

mailto:anthony.swatek@scrapyourtrip.com 

'Cuz life is a trip worth scrappin' ™ 

It's compounded by the fact that my actual email signatures also include 3 lines for phone numbers, which I removed for the purposes of posing this question.  So, with the full signature changing to dbl-spacing, it ends up taking up a third of a page. Any ideas on what's going on?  It's not critical - more of an annoyance.  Thanks.  Tony

Add email disclaimers/signature to all users' email on the exchang
Hi, Would anyone telling me how to do this on the exchnage server? or I need to buy any third-party software ti do this? Because I don't want to do this on everyone's PC! You know this is a painful job! Thanks BW Aahhhh, the most popular topic in the newsgroups! :-) And, yes, by itself, Exchange won't do this.

Outlook HTML signatures, with graphics
Hi I have created a HTML signature, which uses a company logo, as a graphic. I created the HTML file, and copied the actual Signature, directly into Outlook, using the 'Advanced Edit' feature, which allows Word to be used as the editor. All works fine. I can send mails to other users, and my signature is fine. It also appears fine when received at the other side. However, if a user sends me a mail, which I reply to, or forward, my signature is attached. The formatting takes place (ie. the HTML works), and the signature is displayed, however the graphics are not shown. They are inste...

Creating new message, signature font is red?
When I create a new message my signature is red. When I go to edit under tools/options/mail format/signatures - it is black. Why? Even though when you're in the settings the preview is black, I would go through the process again to make sure it is indeed set to black: Tools > Options > Mail Format > Signatures > Edit > Font > Color... and set the color again. If that doesn't do it, make sure you didn't accidentally click the font color to red at your new message beFORE you inserted your signature--if you accidentally clicked the box while in the ne...

Line breaks removed in outgoing e-mail signature
All, When I send an e-mail using Outlook 2003, many, although not all, line breaks in my signature are removed causing my name, title, etc. to be pushed into one long line.

Why does our logo within signature come across as an attachment?

Unable to resize image in email signature
I am not able to resize an image that is in my email signature. When I click on the image, the box and the drag points appear, but I cannot drag and resize the image using any of the drag points. I have only been able to size the image using paint and then insert it in the signature. I can resize the image when the signature has been added to an email just not in the signature create/edit feature. Does anyone else have the problem and were you able to correct it.

Strange Characters in Signatures (and elsewhere?)

When I edit any of my signatures through the facilities in Outlook, SOMETHING is inserting three characters before the signature. The three characters that appear are:  These characters represent the codes: 0xEF 0xBB 0xBF When the codes appear in messages, they also appear in at least SOME of the three files (.htm, .rft, and .txt) in %appdata%\Microsoft\Signatures.

REPOST PLEASE HELP! Problems with images in email signatures
Our marketing dept. has requested that all employees use a html signature file that contains the company logo with a link to the website. However, lots of users are reporting that the image link shows up broken every once in a while and upon inspection I have noticed that outlook is changing the image link by adding outbind://35/ to the src attribute.

Not using Word as the editor - I am placing text and a web site and email address in my signature.

Email signature growing larger in size
Hello everyone, I am trying to add a signature to my emails using Microsoft Outlook 2003. This signature contains 1 .jpg which is size 12 kb and some text. However when I add the .jpg to the email signature, my email message blow up in size to up to somewhere between 47 and 131 KB. I first thought that it might be converting the .jpg into a .bmp, but the .bmp version of this picture is 44 kb. That would make sense if it was consistenly 47 KB, but why does it get up to 131 KB. Is my assumption about the conversion of .jpg to .bmp correct? Also what is going on with the size being so big? An...

Signatures
Anyone have any ideas on how to automatically distinguish between signatures for internal e-mails vs. external? We want a disclosure for external e-mails only.

Signatures bug in OEQB?
Quite a while back, but at least a year apart, I used OEQB to transfer all my files and settings from my main computer to two others, all running WinXP SP3. Recently I tried to add one of my three signatures to an email on my newest computer, and it caused OE to freeze, with the message "Outlook Express has encountered a problem and needs to close."
