Fun fact about Outlook's image processing on Windows:

First of all, the JPEG artifacting is RIDICULOUS

If you copy-paste a PNG from word into an Outlook email composer, either via the Signature or via straight pasting image+text, upon sending, it will automatically convert it into a JPEG and artifacting will be really bad

@brandon that might actually be a server side (I.e. exchange) option. Sounds like an effort to conserve bandwidth by compressing the hell out of images in emails. Is the exchange server corporate run? If so, I doubt that option is needed anymore. Maybe contact IT and suggest a change?

@splatt9990 It's not.

I can paste a PNG directly into the signature say from explorer or Windows Photo Viewer, and that doesn't get converted or compressed
