Are you a member of the BlackBerry Beta program for Hub+? Well I couldn’t care less about the Facebook messenger addition to the Hub, but what really caught my eye was the ability to render HTML signatures for your email accounts!
OK I’m a bit of a geek I’ll admit, but I like to spice up my work email signature with our company logo. It’s super easy to do in Outlook on your PC, but has been an elusive thing to accomplish on your Priv or Dtek50.
Here’s how to add your company logo to your email signature and have it sent automatically every time you send from your account. First start with a picture of your company logo. I took our UTBblogs header picture, loaded it into MS Paint, and reduced it to 10% of its’ original size, and then by 50% again to get this.
Then I uploaded the image to my Photobucket account where I can have permanent storage of said image.
You don’t need to know HTML, or how to program. Just go to your Hub settings, choose the email account you want to use, and go to the signature feature. By default it says “Sent from my BlackBerry Priv” or something similar. As an example you can copy/paste this string into your signature.
“<img src=”http://i1118.photobucket.com/albums/k610/canuckvoip/Passportsmall_zpsaihmnnry.png“/></a> Sent from my BlackBerry Priv”
Just copy everything between the outer quotes starting at <img and Priv.
Then paste that into the signature setting in your email account of choice. It will look like this.
Now you are likely wanting to use whatever pic or logo you please for your accounts. Just upload the pic/logo into your Photobucket accout (or other) and replace the picture source with your new one.
Only replace what is inbetween the quotes starting with http, and ending with .png (or jpg etc) with your direct Photobucket URL like this.
More than likely you can use a storage location on your phone for the picture instead of Photobucket (or similar) but I prefer to use cloud at this time as I find it to be less volatile or likely to change.
Anyway, have fun spicing up your various email signatures on your phone. It looks professional at work, and fun at play.
Enjoy, Dave out.
