Outlook changing border formatting in e-signature RRS feed

  • Question

  • First of all, I am totally new with HTML.   We have HTML code for an e-signature to use in Outllook.   Not sure where the code originally came from.   When opening the htm file in a browser, it looks fine.    When pasting the signature into the Outlook mail signature area, the top border of our logo, which is supposed to be a line, changes from being a specific length to being as long as the window.    

    I know that Outlook changes the code when it creates its own htm file from what you create or paste in Outlook, but usually it would keep the formatting the same.   The only change is the top border of the logo.

    The whole code is as follows.   Is there a way to configure the border so the Outlook won't change it?

    Thanks!!

  • Hi Paul,

    >>When pasting the signature into the Outlook mail signature area, the top border of our logo, which is supposed to be a line, changes from being a specific length to being as long as the window.

    How did you paste the signature into Outlook mail signature area?

    When testing in my environment (Outlook 2016), it displayed correctly. See:

    Here is what I did:

    1. Click File > Options > Mail.

    2. Hold Ctrl key and click Signatures button to open the Signatures folder.

    3. Copy the .htm file and paste it into the Signatures folder.

    4. Now, go to Outlook, click New Email. Under Message tab, click Signature and select your signature to see the result.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Steve Fan

  • Thanks for your reply - sorry for the delay.   We are changing it so this is no longer an issue.   In regards to your reply, that's how we do it but Microsoft really likes to have its way with our work even if it has nothing to do with what we want!

    Thanks again.
