Okay, I renamed the file and put a .GIF and got this page...Also, should the little circle have a dot in it where it says Personal Signature?

Sandy hang tight for a bit and let me sort through your messages here and at The Garden - I think I have an idea what is happening and a way to lessen the steps for you when creating your Personal Signature.

catandbroomH17.gif is a corrupted file now.  Too strange, I can't tell what happened.

waiting to see if the Kid comes up with something ...

From what I can see your signature block is completely empty so lets try a new signature using the editor's tools and see if you get the same problem.

Step 1:
If the image you wish to use is in your Files on Delphi, go ahead and click on the name so you can see the image. Look in the address bar for the image's address  and copy that instead of the image itself. Just highlight the entire thing  and copy as you normally would.

Step 2:
Open your Personal Signature Editor from the Preferences page and click in the Insert Image or Photo button and then choose From the Web

Step 3:
A new box will pop up and you can paste in that web address you copied earlier.



Click OK and then Save

If the image is on your computer you'd just choose From My Computer back in Step 2 and follow the prompts to upload it that way.

It worked!!!  Thank you...Do I do these steps each time I need to change my siggy?  I honestly can't thank you enough...

You can skip uploading it to your Files if you are just going to use it in your Personal Signature. When you use that editor to create your sig and upload a picture From your Computer it actually stores it in your Files anyway. In a folder there called Signature files.

Wait a few days and see if you can use your old method again. It is a bit shorter, Julea mentioned using Controls V to paste, if you are using a keyboard just click where you want the image to appear but paste it in by pressing Control (Ctrl on many keyboards) and V at the same time. That might work better than use the Paste under Edit has been the last few days.
