Seeking developer for a one-time Outlook related coding project
Below is a question asked by a user on a Microsoft tech support board:
Basically, we need done what the user in the above link is trying to do.
Our office uses Outlook 2007 as our primary email client - we have image files we’d like to use as signatures for everyone in the office (7 people). We’ve tried implementing the signature image directly through Outlook, but found that (i) the picture would end up looking grainy to the recipient, (ii) if we scroll down in email chains the signature in previous emails would show up as <image001.jpg> and (iii) if people responded and changed the format of the email to Plain/Real Text, the signature would disappear completely and/or include the image as an attachment in the reply.
After some research we found the HTML method, which we think would probably work best (as the user outlines in the above link). We’d need someone to implement that code for us as well as run tests (e.g. via Litmus or a similar program) to ensure that the signature looks right in every situation. For example, for item (iii) above, it’d be ideal if there was a way to substitute some kind of Alt text for the image in the event the email gets switched to Plain/Real Text. Though we think the HTML method is the best, we’re not married to it and are open to suggestions.
Respondents would ideally have experience in e-mail marketing and how different email clients handle signatures.
Please PM or email me with (i) estimated time to completion (ii) brief summary of your background (iii) price quote.
