Add a Graphic by Hand
You can also add an image to your signature on a more direct route by creating the necessary HTML code directly:

1. Create a signature using HTML formatting in Outlook Express.
2. Edit the signature's .html file to include '<img src="{path to your animated gif}" />' (without the outer, but including the inner set of quotation marks) where you want to place the animation.
3. Make sure the signature animation is sent together with the emails you send.
