The e-mail looked fine to me. A text sig in the text portion of the e-mail, 
and a html sig in the html formatted section. As Hugo said, Outlook has one 
ugly and awkward html formatting engine, especially if you use word for the 
mail editor, but it is usually readable in any other html client.

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
