Hi,

The version is Outlook 2016, but that's not an option in the list. I am trying to find a way to use social media icons in our email signatures and not have them appear as attachments for some recipients because of the email client they use. From what I've read, if you link to the social media icons on a web server instead of embedding them in the email, it will prevent the attachment issue. However, I found a Youtube video on how to do that, but one of the steps was to change a registry setting for Outlook to 'Send Pictures with Documents' =0 meaning NO pictures will be sent with emails, so if I understand this correctly, there will be the red 'X' in place of any other pictures you may WANT to send in an email....is this correct?

My other question would be is there a commonly used web server where you can link to the Facebook, Instagram, Twitter icon images for free? I searched, but wanted to know if anyone has a good recommendation.

Thanks so much!

I'm not sure if I fully understand your question.

You are creating an e-mail signature and wish to include a 'Facebook' icon that if clicked send the user to your Facebook account?

You can do something like the following (illustrate the general principle), no?

QUOTE





You have to note that you don't control your recipient's e-mail clients and some do put all embedded content as attachments for security reasons. There is nothing you can do about it.

Thanks very much for your reply. I have tried to explain to our exec dir about not having control of other email clients and the security reason for it etc., but she keeps asking me to find a way because she strongly dislikes the attachment issue! pullhair.gif

Did you try the code sample I provided. If you place the images on a webserver then you should be able to do something very similar which should work fine and doesn't add attachments to e-mails. The issue is that recipients can disable images (and there's nothing you can do about that). I know several people that use text only email client so they would never see the icons.
