    Including images in your email signature, should you?

    -- I apologize if this is in the wrong category. Please move if needed.

    I want to include our company logo in my signature for all emails i send. If set that up with my mail client, it attaches the logo as an attachment so it can display my logo in the clients email.

    I'm thinking of maybe linking to the image instead so it wouldn't be an attachment.

    My question is, are there any pro's or cons to either method... or should i avoid the image in the signature completely?

    Thank you in advance.

    Most companies or small businesses usually have the company logo and signature at the bottom left hand side of the e mail, and should not be set as an attachment rather pasted on the bottom. If it is set as an attachment it will look very unprofessional.

    I actually really dislike images in signatures. Some corporate mail filters will eat attachments, or delay the receipt of a message until the attachment has been reviewed.

    If I had to use one, though, I'd link to it.

    Good point NEVER1
    Or better ask for approval of the company if you wish to do that.

    I prefer a simple signature myself, no images just links. That was it'll look neat and professional.

    I would say if you did use images, the logo should be at the top of the e-mail rather than the bottom, the signature should be the individual sending the email, not the website from which it origionated. Signatures are meant to be unique, not generic.

    No images and if any, I link to them. Spam filters may stop the message if images are included.

    I agree with Alex. Generally speaking, though, I would say no -- avoid images in signatures. As pointed out, they are often filtered anyway.
