    Default html signatures, embedded images from shared briefcase

    Hello

    Having just discovered the "embed image" button on the signature editor (nice work guys!) which embeds the image as a contentid multipart, it seems everyone now needs a logo in their signature - Id like to do this with zmprov.

    I could try and test, but just in case anyone knows or has tried already, can I replace <img dfsrc="doc:Briefcase/images"> with the path to a shared briefcase, instead of the user's personal one? This would make bulk provisioning signatures a lot easier.

    Any thoughts/suggestions welcome!

    Hi

    Have you had any luck with this?

    I am trying to do just the same thing - a global signature that contains an embedded image.

    I ideally want to do it using the new global disclaimer feature of Zimbra 6

    Thanks!

    Have you tried putting the images in the /opt/zimbra/jetty/webapps/zimbra/downloads directory?

    Should work for global disclaimers.

    I haven't, no.

    How would one go about referencing the images placed there in the HTML footer though? What I am trying to avoid is having something like <img src="http://myserver/whatever/theimage.png"> because most mail clients will not display the images by default and instead insist on you clicking a "display external images" button.

    What I am trying to do is have images that are referenced like this:

    <img src="cid:12345">

    Then additional mime parts that contain the image like this:

    ------=_Part_374_21510038.1268676246147
    Content-Type: image/jpeg; name="image.jpg"
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
    Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="image.jpg"
    Content-ID: <12345>

    <base 64 image data>

    The trouble I am having is what ever I put in the global HTML disclaimer just gets put into the text/html part of the email and I cant figure out how to get an attachment added on the fly with a known content ID so I can reference it in my HTML.


    Zimbra recently added this feature for per user signatures. Its discussed in this bug - Bug 25797 &ndash; RFE: inline/embeded logos in the signature and the fix was the implementation of the "insert image" button on the signature configuration screen that takes an image on the fly from your briefcase and adds it as an attachment.

    Hope that makes sense?

    That does make sense, please file an RFE.
