Symptoms

When an Outlook 2002 user who has a default signature that includes an image file in .jpeg, .gif, or .bmp format replies to or forwards an e-mail message, the message recipient sees a placeholder image instead of the signature image. This problem is seen only in Outlook 2002 when the Message Format setting is set to HTML. If the user manually inserts the image into the e-mail message, the image is displayed correctly.
