I've tried to put together an html signature in Dreamweaver, saving it as a webarchive file and overwrite the signature webarchive file in the Mail signatures folder like in this article:
html signature in apple mail
The problem is, no matter what I do, it won't display the image in Mail. Only a typical 'missing image' icon (blue question mark). Like it doesn't find the image file. I've used an online image link which displays fine when I view the html file in Safari.

What could be wrong?
QUOTE Thanks

I've followed this tutorial to put together a html signature for Apple Mail

How To: Make an HTML Email Signature For Apple Mail | gathering in light

So I've tested it with this simple file:

<img src="" width="283" height="34" />
This should just display the logo. I've saved this through safari as a Web Archive file and saved in onto the Web Archive file of Apple Mail in the Signatures folder. Then opened Apple Mail again. As you can see, while composing the mail the icon turns into the blue question mark icon. I've later sent it to my private email address and it arrived as an image.

Why won't it appear in the email while composing? The various tutorials about html signatures display any image already there while composing the email. So I wonder why it doesn't on my Mac.
QUOTE Thanks
