How To: Embed an Image into an Email Template

Embedding Images into Email Templates uses HTML and is an Advanced User feature.

Embedding an image into a Message Template requires using HTML, and therefore the whole message must be configured using HTML.

  1. Create a Message Template; see How To: Setup Email Templates.
  2. In edit mode, tick the HTML Format checkbox.
  3. Click on the Embedded Images button in email templates button just below the HTML Format checkbox.
  4. Click on the Email Add File button button in the Email Attachment Manager dialog and find and select the images you wish to appear in your email template.
  5. Repeat to add all the images you require.
  6. In the body of the message where you wish the images to appear add the following:
    <img src="cid:Image_Name.jpg" width="200" height="85">
    Substituting in your image filename for 'Image_Name'; this does not need to reference the entire folder path.
    1. The image can be resized using the width and height parameters.
    2. The image name should not contain spaces so the html editor can recognise it.
    3. The limit for the image size is 100kb, images larger than this will be rejected.
  7. Complete the email template.
  8. Press Ctrl+S or click the disk icon is the button bar's SAVE button to save.
