    Default How do I insert a picture into my signature?

    This may be user error but I can't figure out how to insert a picture into my signature. I'd like to include my company's logo. There is an "Insert Images" button when you create an HTML signature, and I tried using a URL like this:

    file:///c:/logo.jpg

    but all this did was include this URL in the signature, not embed my company's logo. I also tried to drag and drop the logo file onto the signature edit window, but that seemed to give weird results, and didn't always even work. At best I got a picture frame outline but no picture inside the outline.

    So, can this be done?

    I have an image in my sig, but doing it involved a little bit of hackery.

    My sig is defined as:

    Code:
    zmprov ga myUsername | grep zimbraPrefMailSignatureHTML
    
    zimbraPrefMailSignatureHTML: <table><tr><td><img src = 'https://mail.domain.co.uk/zimbra/logo.png' /></td><td><div style='border-left: 3px double rgb(51, 68, 119); padding: 0px 0px 0px 7px; font-family: verdana,sans-serif; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 10px; line-height: 14px; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal; color: rgb(51, 68, 119);'><span style='font-weight: bold;'My Name</span><br>IT Support<br><a style = 'text-decoration:none; color: rgb(51, 68, 119);' href = 'http://www.domain.co.uk'>Company Name</a></div></td></tr></table>
    I've sanitised it a little, but you can see in there a image reference, the image is stored directly on our zimbra server at /opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/zimbra/logo.png

    Now, this works but it's not ideal, you could store the image at Amazon's S3 services or something if you prefer, plus it's difficult to edit and not very flexible. There may be better ways, I created this a while back and havnt been tempted to come up with anything better yet.

    I don't think I really want to tell my CEO that we have to store our company logo at Amazon in order to get it in our signature. Really though, all we need is a reference to our logo on our own web server. That'll work but it certainly isn't very customizable, e.g., what if I want a picture of my cat in my sig?

    When composing an email it's possible to embed an attachment in the body of the message. This same idea would be nice for signatures.

    I tried something quick and dirty and put our company's logo up on my gmail site. For some reason though, Zimbra doesn't like this link:

    https://sites.google.com/a/maxiscale.../maxiscale.png



    This works fine on this forum but doesn't display the intended graphic when I use the link in my signature.

    I tried something similar using the sigtools site, and created this:

    http://www.sigtools.com/SIGpwsteele-bigfoot-blue.png



    This works fine in Zimbra. So, why does the first link not work?

    Okay, I think I figured it out. That google site wants a username to access the site. Guess I'll have to put the graphic elsewhere.

    Default Unable to add a graphic

    Hi,
    How do you add a graphic using HTML signature? I'm having a hard time to make it to work when I place the graphic in an in-house web server. I'm running 5.0.15.
    Thanks.

    Thanks Dirk for the info. Worked great. I did have to format my zmprov command a little different. Here is my command

    Code:
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraPrefMailSignatureHTML "<table><tr><td><img src = 'http://www.domain.com/signatures/Logo_Edit.gif' /></td><td><div style='border-left: 3px double rgb(51, 68, 119); padding: 0px 0px 0px 7px; font-family: verdana,sans-serif; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; font-size: 10px; line-height: 14px; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal; color: rgb(51, 68, 119);'><span style='font-weight: bold;'></span>Name<br>Title<br><a style = 'text-decoration:none; color: rgb(51, 68, 119);' href = 'http://www.yourdomain.com'>Company Name</a><br>Address_1<br>Address_2<br>City, ST 99999<br>888.555.1212<br>user@domain.com</div></td></tr></table>"
    I am using our website to host the image.

    Default Add image to Signature

    Okay, would someone please explain to me in simplified terms how to add an image to a signature? In the directions for using the richtext editor with zimbra desktop it says to link into the documents folder. So I uploaded an image there and tried this different ways, but it's not working. Am I missing something, or is it because there is still a problem with html formatting in signatures? Thanks, drking

    Question How do you add an Image into a signature

    Nobody has answered "PeterSteele" original question....
    If you're using ZD as a replacement for Outlook or Thunderbird. We don't have a web site or server to “get” our image. We have a image file (.png) stored on our desktop system. How do you load a local image into your signature? We should be able to use file:///c:/Image_Name.png. Something so simple to achieve in outlook, but impossible/frustrating in ZD.

    Thanks for your reply JRG. Zimbra has so many great attributes so it's odd that this is not one of it's added features. I constantly go back from Entourage to Zimbra because Entourage is slow, however since the issue of being able to insert an image in the signature is important to me for some of my accounts, I do find myself migrating back to send emails from those accounts. Hopefully someone will let us know something soon.
