Question about Hotmail and Mail Stationery

    Hi. I created a custom stationery template for Mail and it works fine,
    for the most part. It displays properly in gmail, yahoo and aol.
    However, it does not display properly in Hotmail. Where the images
    should be there is an icon with a question mark. There is a little
    paper clip icon too, indicating that the images were sent as
    attachments, but I can't figure out how to view or download them.
    Nothing happens when I click it. Also, Hotmail does recognize other
    HTML emails, such as spam from Phoenix Unversity Online; Hotmail asks
    if I want to load the images, and then the HTML mail displays properly.
    But with the Mail stationery I sent, Hotmail does not ask if I want to
    load the images. Also, this problem occurs with all Mail messages that
    use stationery, not just the one I made. It's possible that I am
    confused on how to use Hotmail but I thought I'd post here to see if
    someone has suggestions.

    Personally I don't like HTML emails either ... BUT the images in HTML
    emails don't actually have to be attachments (although that does seem to
    be how most stationery options work unfortauntely). Images can be stored
    and accessed from a Internet storage space instead - that may or may not
    get around Mirsky's Hotmail problem.

    Yeah, I can understand that. I'd never used the HTML stationery before
    for various reasons.

    But I created one of my own with a caricature of myself and a word
    balloon, emanating from the caricature, that contained the body of the
    message. It was really only for fun and I'll use it sparingly.

    As I just posted, I am not planning to use the stationery much at all.

    But the images in the stationery I made are only about 50K total, so
    it's not really filling up people's mailboxes.
