HTML signature on iNotes


Today i found a solution for a customer migrating from Exchange to Domino/SmartCloud. He want to add signature using html on iNotes

You can use HTML within a iNotes signature by encapsulating all HTML tags within brackets [ ] to mark the text as pass-thru HTML.

If you use an image, the file must exist on a Web server that the iNotes client can access. For example, you can store the image within the domino/html directory of the Domino server and reference the image using the Web address such as http:// /

What follows is an example of HTML code to display a signature with a corporate logo:
[ <html><b>John Doe</b><br><i>Example Corp, Inc.<br>[email protected]</i><img src=””></img></html> ]

(Please note: There should be no spaces after the open bracket “[” or before the close bracket “]”. Spaces have been intentionally added to the above block of text in order to allow it to display correctly on the web, instead of being treated as pass-thru html.)

I add the html code using the field Simple Text and mark the Include signature…. as a simple text.

The information above is from this IBM TechNote

    A client dropped EXCHANGE and went to Domino/SmartCloud?!? How did you get that right? Talk about going against what’s popular. All I read is how clients are dropping Domino and going to Office365. I am impressed!

      We are migrating 5K users from Exchange to Domino/Smartcloud. Was a big deal for us here. The project is on the go. IBM Brazil and my company work’s hard and win the deal.

        Well done to you guys Kenio. I honestly think that you should post WHY this company went this route. What was the selling point? This may help others to get customers to consider changing as well.

          The response to the WHY has several answers but the principal was the price/user.
