Hi!

I'm unable to complete this signature with HTML code.  Can someone give some advice on doing so?  Is it possible to achieve this result?  I have tried with table but I was unable to fix the middle colum to 38px

Thanks

I would not bother. Something that works in Outlook will be broken in Thunderbird, if you manage to satisfy both Gmail will break etc.

Just create a single image with your signature, optimize it so it's under 100KB, then insert it at the end of the email, as signature.

That way, your signature will look exactly as you want it, regardless of the email client.

HTH,
Dan

Thanks but it's for 150 users.  I'm using Mail Exclaimer.  It's taking records from Active Directory to automaticly create the signature.

So what changes? Cause you can keep the name and title as text, add the phone below it, then only use the fax no in the picture (since I assume it's the same or only a few numbers, so you'll get 3-5 templates).

}
DIV.ImprintUniqueID {
      MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt
}
TABLE.ImprintUniqueIDTable {
      MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt
}
DIV.Section1 {
      page: Section1
}
</STYLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>{Original Message Above Reply Separator}<BR />
<TABLE class=ImprintUniqueIDTable borderColor=black cellSpacing=0 cols=1 cellPadding=0 width=350 border=2>

  <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <tr style="background-color: red; height: 23px;">
      <td style="width: 150px;">&nbsp;</td>
      <td style="background-color: red; width: 38px;">&nbsp;</td>
      <td style="width: 150px;">&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td style="width: 150px;">The name of the company</td>
      <td style="background-color: red; width: 38px;">&nbsp;</td>
      <td style="width: 150px;">Phone<br />Fax</td>
    </tr>
    <tr style="background-color: red; height: 10px;">
      <td style="width: 150px;">&nbsp;</td>
      <td style="background-color: red; width: 38px;">&nbsp;</td>
      <td style="width: 150px;">&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td style="width: 150px;">Address line1<br />Address line2</td>
      <td style="background-color: red; width: 38px;">&nbsp;</td>
      <td style="width: 150px;">Toll Free<br />Web</td>

Wow!  Excellent!
One last request, is it possible to add an underscore over the Jean-Sébastien Picard name?

Either of these should work:

or
