possibility to persistently embed images in signature

Currently the signature editor allows me to copy/paste images. However those are stored locally on the computer and when sending an E-Mail the receipient will see only blanks.

Those images should be either auto-attached to the sent E-Mail (This is what outlook does for instance) or the possiblity to have them in a cloud like storage should be given (dropbox, nextcloud, onedrive?). Onedrive seems like a logical resource as long as hiri is exchange only anyways...

    Hi there,


    It's possible to add image links to a signature using HTML. You'll find instructions here:


    All the best,

    Even using HTML my image does not appear.  It just appears as a broken link in the email to my clients.  I think what the original poster is suggesting is that Hiri needs a way to send the actual image file that's on the local computer along with the email if the image itself isn't hosted out on the web somewhere.

    I was able to get this to work by using source and embedding the image data:

    <img src="data:image/png;base64,XXX">

    Where XXX is the data string.  It works great.  There are plenty of tools on the web to get the data string for a given image.  Hope that helps.

     I've tried using the base64 string and, while on the signature preview window the image is displayed correctly, whenever I try to send and email it appears as a broken link image.
