How Can I Display My HTML / CSS Signature In Outlook?

  • # February 18, 2011 at 11:11 am

    I´ve just finished a really nice email signature, with a few images, but when I put it into outlook, it doesn´t format properly….

    What is the best way to place an HTML signature?

    I´m using Outlook 2007- can´t believe how limited the options are.

    I’m guessing it has to be in tables as it’s for email.

    I´ve read that you need to limit the amount of CSS, and that it has to be inline? The sig I´ve created isn´t that fancy, but it does have a background image, which Outlook doesn´t like, or recognise.

    I suppose I could just use an image…. Most emails have images that you have to unblock.

    Annoying. Such a basic thing. Is the new outlook any better?

    I know I’m old school here, but html is NOT for email!!!

    How would you create and display an attractive Email signature?

    Its email – I wouldn’t. Most security conscious people have images and html turned off in their email client anyway. If I had something that needed to be shown, I’d include a link.

    Just use some nice fonts, that’s all we do. No point if overcomplicating things
