Good afternoon, I have recently joined NACHI, my questions is, Is it possible to add the NACHI Certification Seal, as an active link, to my outgoing e-mails? If so–how. Any help of advice would be great.


Thanks,


Bob

Robert,


First you would have to make sure you create your email as HTML, then you could just put the image on there like you would normally do for a webpage.

If you go to the Members Only Log In page, I think the logos and appropriate code are all there somewhere, just use the same HTML code in your email.

BTW, I haven't tried this but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

One more thought, your recipients will also have to have their email application set up to view messages as HTML to be able to see the image and use the link.

Add the link in the signature line of your outgoing email.

Robert,


Ok, I have tested various things and found out it was not as easy as I thought. ![icon_sad.gif](upload://nMBtKsE7kuDHGvTX96IWpBt1rTb.gif)

Just using the HTML from my website didn't work. I tried changing things up a bit but still no luck. Finally had to resort to inserting the image, then adding the link to the image.

I use Thunderbird for my email client so I don't know if the way I got it to work will be the same for other email clients.

If you are just wanting the link without the logo then maybe you can do what Joe H. said.

I have found that adding Logos or Stationary may be problematic for many email recipients.

Adding links conveys the information without interruption.

Joe,


I agree, however I was thinking he wanted the logo on the email rather than just a link.

I found a pretty good site that discusses signatures and taglines in general.

Here is the link if it can help anyone.

Robert,


Here are instructions for Mozilla Thunderbird users.

In Thunderbird, click on the "Write" button to compose a new message.
In the composition window, create your signature (adding the seal code by going to the "Insert" menu, choosing "HTML..." and pasting the code from NACHI.ORG)

Select the text you want in your signature (or go to "Edit -> Select All" if you want the whole message as your signature).

From the "Insert" menu, choose "HTML...".

Select the text in the window that pops up and copy the selected text ("Ctrl+C", or right mouse click and select "Copy").

Open your favorite text editor (such as Notepad) and paste in the text you just copied.

Save the file to your computer, giving it a name with the ".html" extension (such as "signature1.html").

In Thunderbird again, go to "Tools -> Account Settings -> <Account Name>".

Check the "Attach this signature" option.

Click the "Choose..." button and attach the signature file that you just created and saved on your computer.

Andrew, Joe and Nick, thanks for the advise, I am not running Thunderbird and currently have just added the link to my signatures. James, thanks for the “welcome”


I spoke to my neighbor earlier today, he is an IT guy, he said he can do anything. If he figures it out I will let you know what and how he did it.


Thanks again,


Bob
