Tip

Very Personalized Mail Footer

In the 7/5 issue Dae Melchi's tip added a business card-like signature to a
mail footer. I do the same but import a scanned .gif file of my own signature
along with the business card info. All you need to do is scan the signature,
size it down to about 90x40 pixels in an image editor and save it. Then use
the @command([FileImport]) above the business card to bring in the signature
file. Looks very slick.
Dae Melchi's code looks like this

BusinessCard:=@NewLine + "_________________" +
@NewLine + "Your Name" +
@NewLine + "Your Position" +
@NewLine + "Your Company" +
@NewLine + "Phone: (999) 999-9999" +
@NewLine + "Fax: (999) 999-9999" ;
@Command([EditInsertText]; BusinessCard)

Mine is very similar except
Before the [EditInsertText] command, enter

@Command([FileImport];"GIF Image";"c:\\sig.gif");

Where "GIF Image" corresponds to one of the choices in the import command's
File Type and "c:\\sig.gif" is the path to the signature.

Available File Types are

"BMP Image"
"GIF Image"
"JPEG Image"
"Lotus PIC"
"PCX Image"
"TIFF 5.0 Image"
