Apologies for not being quite on topic...was not sure of the best place to ask this.

I have a client who wants to offer his logo to customers so they can show their support by using his logo in their email signature box.

I can, of course, create the code for them to cut and paste into their signature box....but naturally I won't know which email systems will be used by all these customers.

Also, a lot of his customers are not going to be savvy enough to understand the "paste this html...." instructions, so he wants an image that they can just right-click on, copy, and paste into their signature box with a URL link already embedded into the image.

I don't think this is even possible, but perhaps I am wrong and there is something out there I don't know about.


Does anybody know of a way to do this?

Thanks...
Wil

doubt it but you could offer code or the image as a download, frankly id be surprised if anyone would add it anyway

Yes, I already said I could offer the html for pasting and include both the image and the link that way, but was asking for any alternate solutions I might not know about...I'm better with websites, not that familiar with how things are set up for emails.

Not interested in your opinion on what people would or would not add. It's for a charitable organization that people of a like mind would probably want to support this way. At least, that's the opinion of the client, not mine. Thanks anyway.

doesn't matter if you do or not,its a forum idf i want to express and an opinion i will.
its also my opiion that it is not possible as i said I doubt it.
mail are different and save attachment in different folders of course.
also many will strip out an attachment and as far as i know will also strip out and script as a defence against spam you could maybe make a link to a site where it could be added. of course this is just an opinion also .
feel free to disregard it
