In Outlook Web Access (OWA), we can set an email signature but cannot insert a logo, or image.
Is there a way to do this? Maybe inserting html in some way or something?
Thanks

Yeah.  Just copy the picture to clipboard and ctrl v to paste into the signature creator in OWA.

Just tried it, I pasted the google picture into my signature.

I have Exchange 2003, you must have 2000.... because I copied the image from a couple of different places and the PASTE is greyed out... I cannot do it.

I have 2003 SP2.

However, I do have Windows Vista on the PC I tried this from.  Let me try from a XP machine.

Works for me also on IE 6.0 XP SP2.

I just went to google.com and right click on google logo say copy.  Open OWA signature and ctrl v or right click and say paste, it is not greyed out.

What is your Exchange version besides 2003?  SP2?

Do you have activex controls enabled?  Are you acccessing the server through your intranet so it is in the intranet zone or external internet zone in IE?  Try adding it to your trusted sites.

Matthew since we're at it, do you know if you can insert a hyperlink to the image?

As far as I can see this does not take HTML.

Typing html into the signature shows up all the html code.  I tried also creating the signature in word using a hyperlink for the image and copying it into the signature box in OWA, all works, but there is no hyperlink after doing that.

The only thing that works is typing http://www.website.com gets highlighted as a hyperlink and so do email addresses.  I don't see a way to do it in OWA.  You can do this in Outlook.  But OWA and Outlook signatures do not carry over.

I had to disable that MIME activex control from IE because everytime I clicked on SEND my entire IE crashed.
So this signature thing isn't working for me... also, the image looks fine in the signature editor but once you click on new, it shows a broken image icon...

Any ideas? Perhaps I don't have the latest MIME? How do I make sure I install the latest one?
Under options in OWA i see this:
Click here to install the latest version of the S/MIME Control. When the file download dialog appears, choose Open.
It downloads and installs but as I mentioned above, it crashes my browser when clicking send.... how do I make sure I have the right version of the S/MIME?

S/MIME is for secure email and digital certificate etc.

The broekn link could be because of how you are copying the image.  Try copying the image from a web site and see if the same results exist.

Ok.  Here is what I have found.  If you copy from a local picture, word doc etc.  It will not work.  This is because the image is not being pasted in, esentially a pointner / link is being put in.  I have also found if you were to put your image on on the web with a hyperlink in it, so <a href="http://www.webpage.com><img src="image path"></a> on a public web page and then copy the image that it produces into yoru signature should solve most the problems.

You will wind up with a picture that actually displays in the signature and in sent email, along with a link.

Hope this helps.

The problem was that in OMA to insert (paste) the image you have to have at least some text before it. I was clearing the screen blank and the paste link was greyed out.
I worked around the issue by just typing a period (.) and making it white so it doesn't show and then I was able to paste the image right after it in the signature.

Thank you Matthew!
