    E-Signature; making links inline so...

    r_tist Level 1
      I've been trying to get my email signature into Outlook & it would not retain the hex values for the active links. They defaulted to blue. I was advised to make them inline. (see the code below; it still doesn't work) And, of course, the background pattern which lies behind the text doesn't transfer either...I don't think it can into Outlook?

          There is no color specification in these two links at the bottom....

          <p align="left"
          style="font-size:7.5pt;font-family:Arial;color:#591F00;line-height:20px"><span
          class="style5">T</span> Phone Number Here <span class="style5"> |
          </span>  <span class="style4">F</span> Fax Number Here<br>
          <a style="text-decoration:none"
          href="mailto:me@myemail.com">me@myemail.com</a><br>
          <a style="text-decoration:none"
          href=" http://www.mywebsite.com">mywebsite</a></p>

          Might you be wanting to do this?

          <a style="text-decoration:none;color#591F00;"
          href="mailto:me@myemail.com">me@myemail.com</a><br>
          <a style="text-decoration:none;color#591F00;" "
          href=" http://www.mywebsite.com">mywebsite</a></p>

            Hi,

            I tried that and when I browse for the html file in Outlook, it appears as intended in the signature preview window. Though, the moment I open a new, blank email...back to that dreadful blue again!?

            Is there anyway around this or will I have to make the links inactive in order to preserve the color I'd like?

            Secondly, I've asked numerous times about having a background image behind the text...seems like it cannot be done, unless, perhaps I play around with the background stationery option in Outlook? -- Would you agree?

            Thanks!
