Can you insert HTML code into Outlook 2007 signature?

Recommended Posts

I need to insert an opt-in box into a client’s e-mail signature.

 

Is there a way to insert HTML code into an Outlook 2007 signature and get the desired graphic/text/link?

(I’ve tried several workarounds and got just the code to show up.)

No, HTML code is not supported in signatures in 2007. It's a security issue. It also does not support animated .gif files, embedded flash and some advanced HTML and CSS. Check out this White Paper Microsoft created

http://office.microsoft.com/search/redir.a...;Origin=HA10210

That link will start a download of a Word 07 File named Outlook2007EmailEditorWhitepaper.docx

I wasn't aware of this issue with 2007 so I did a quick Google search and came up with this page, which has a workaround for embedding images in HTML plus links to two other pages. Not sure if this will work or not but the solution on the page I linked to looks like it might. Let me know if it works!

Levi,

 

The 17 step solution works IF the client already has a signature file like this created in an earlier version and saved in HTML.

We ended up posting on the Web site, but thanks for your help.

Thanks for letting me know, this is definitely something I'll keep in mind. I hope you can get it sorted out for your client and for future reference!
