Hey,

I've located and edited the current .html file that's used to show my signature when I send out emails. Everything seems to be working besides when I add an (icon) image at the end of my signature. Do I need specify my <img> some speciel way before it will work?

See my simple HTML signature below:
Name<br />
Company<br />
Adress<br />
<img src="http://www.domain.com/image-path.jpg" alt="Company name" />

I recommend placing the image file in tha same folder as the html file.  That is what I do (programatically) for our users.  Also, it is a good idea to use well formatted html as the previous expert suggests.

Here's a sample of my signature:
<html><body link="#264078" alink="#264078" vlink="#264078">
<div style="color:#264078; font-family:arial; font-size:9pt;"><br>
<div style="color:#264078; font-family:arial; font-size:10pt; font-weight:bold;"><hr>Bill Hanson</div>
Lotus Notes Developer<br>
<img src="logo.gif" />
</div>
</body></html>

Ny code snuppet was a bit lackfull - i did actually use correct/semantic html.
What im experiencing is (This is the same regardless if i place my image locally or externally)
When i compose my Email in notes, i just get a Red cross - fair enough.
When i send an Email to myself i would expect to get the image with a Red cross - but i just dont get anything.
Ive tried sending an Email to hotmail and gmail, with Same result. I don't see any images in signature. Not even a broken one.

Which Notes version do you have? In  Notes R8+ you have the possibility to create a signature inside the mail database, as Rich Text.

Hey,

I've got release version 8.01. Still haven't figured this out yet.
I even tried copy pasting your example Bill-Hanson - just with the same result.

Hey f_bosman,

I just tried going to the tabs you're showing, but it seems that I don't have access to them.
At the bottom, I get "NOTE: Your administrator has disabled some preferences" - it's a globally controlled thing in our company, so sadly nothing to do about it. So pretty much given up on getting this to work :)

I'll let this topic stay open for a day in case someone has something to say :)

Don't be afraid to contact your Admin. After all, he might be human...  ;-)
