To save you the effort of reposting to the correct newsgroup, you can not
modify the coding of a hotmail message to achieve the desired intent.
The only option available in the web interface is to modify the background
To embed an image as a background, you must use a different email client.
Finally, even if one embeds a background(e.g using a jpg file), Hotmail may
still convert the background to an attached file.
- I.e. nothing gained.

ms-mvp windows live mail

Using Windows Live Hotmail(the old web-based MSN Hotmail) I
occasionally receive emails where the forwarded portion contains a
stationery-like background image. I have tried from time to time to
send Hotmail messages created at the Hotmail website that contain an
image background....snowflakes for Christmas, hearts for Valentines,
I have read that Hotmail strips all background information except for
that included in the <TD> table data field. Supposedly background
images will show up, but I have yet to create an html/css/table based
email where I can see the background image behind the text. Does
anyone know how to write this code so that emails created in Hotmail
can have stationery-like background images?
