Hi,
I know that I can can embed an image into my email signature - unfortunatly these emails get blocked quite often for the image.

I can create a TTF font for my company logo - now is it possible to embed that font within my email (Outlook and exchange) so that the correct font is used at the reciepient when opening the email??

OR - does anyone have a better solution!

Help is appreciated

Depends on what happens at the recipient's end... What client is used, which settings are in effect... I use Thunderbird and refuse to load pictures in my mails, and the system perhaps doesn't hold the font chosen by the sender, so if it's html, some substitute font will be used; it might not look like you think it should look at all. If the font is created by you, the probability that it's available on external systems is pretty slim.

Plain text or possibly standards-compliant html are the best choices in my opinion.
