This is an interesting problem which I have been getting mixed feedback on.
The file is visible using an html browser, as you would for hotmail, but not 
in email readers , at least in its present form.
Microsoft says that with embedded ActiveX controls, scripts and Java 
applets, there is an increased chance that the HTML content you receive in 
an e-mail message could access or modify files on your computer without your 
knowledge or consent. Thats bad..

Most respondents pointed to the features of Outlook which allow "stationery" 
as a background. I was experiementing with some other images in the public 
domain as a substitute. Just backgrounds, not active x controls, or scripts 
or applets. With that in mind, are there solutions?

I've been playing around with this but as you know, email readers won't get 
anything but the text.
