A client wants a signature with specific formatting and a logo of his company (i.e. an image).
So, I created an HTML file for him to use with Outlook, when he sends mails.
Note how I am NOT attaching the image, but getting it from the client's website.
<br/><br/><div style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', 'Helvetica Light', tahoma, arial; font-size:11pt; color:#000000;">
Marketing Manager (Mon - Wed 09:00 - 17:00)
Direct line: xxxx
<a href='http://mydomain.com' style='font-weight:bold; color:#000000; text-decoration:none;'>www.mydomain.com</a>
<img src="http://mydomain.com/images/mailimages/logosignature.gif" alt="logo" width="178" height="72" />
There are 2 problems with this, which I don't know how to resolve:
1) We tried forwarding it to the client and it wasn't received as expected. It was sent from me to a Project Manager to another Project Manager (who uses MAC OSX) to the client. The client complained that he couldn't see the logo image and it was attached in the mail instead. The mail was then eventually forwarded back to me and I noticed this too. Any idea as to how I can fix this?
Or is forwarding an HTML mail from one person to another generally not a good idea?
2) If i directly send a new mail with that signature, it looks fine on most mail clients including Outlook and Gmail. However, in Yahoo! and Hotmail, the signature looks fine - but the image is ATTACHED as well - which is really annoying. How can I prevent the mail reaching Yahoo/Hotmail as an attachment? Is Outlook doing something to cause this, when I send the mail?
Any advice would be appreciated..thank you!!
