    Is there a way to have these two solutions work together? I would like to insert a jpg file of our company logo to Stationary using Remote Image Inserter.

    I tried inserting the jpg file directly into stationary but some email readers did not see the logo.

    Grateful for any assistance you can offer.

    The Stationery editor built into the Stationery solution lets you insert remote images.

    You can use the editor to insert links to remote images within your stationery. Images inserted using this technique are not sent as standard GroupWise image file attachments with the message. As the images do not travel with the message, this technique results in messages which are smaller.

    To insert a remote image into your stationery:

    1. Position the cursor at the point where you want to insert the remote image.
    2. Press the Remote Image toolbar button.
    3. Enter the full Image URL to the image you wish to insert. You must include the http://
    component of the URL.
    4. Press the Refresh button. The image (if available) will be analysed and the width and height
    properties, as well as the options under Enclosing Element Properties, will be enabled.
    5. Specify the Enclosing element type and other properties as appropriate.
    6. Press OK.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for your reply. When using the insert remote image button, it seems to recognize the image on the server, but the image doesn’t appear in the template or in the email itself.

    Thanks for the additional information.

    What gives the indication that the Remote Image Inserter recognizes the image on the server?

    Does that mean that while the Remote Image Inserter appears to access the image on the server nothing appears in your GroupWise HTML message after pressing OK on the Remote Image Inserter dialog?

    Or are you inserting a remote image using the Stationery HTML editor?

    After inserting the image, you can check the HTML source code of the GroupWise message or the Stationery by right-mouse clicking into the message body and select View Source. If the image is inserted correctly, it will be referenced as a CSS background image inside the relevant HTML tags.

    Which version of the GroupWise Windows client are you using?

    Which versions of the applet solutions are you using, i.e. Stationery, Remote Image Inserter?

    The solutions are designed specifically to work together. For example, in our own GroupWise correspondence we use the Remote Image Inserter regularly in-house with our Personalized Emailer, Stationery and standard GroupWise HTML messages.

    Regards,
