Email Signature

Email Signature

I'm having issues trying to keep an HTML table contained to the width choosen. <table width="505"></table>. Thunderbird contains it's width as long as the window is narrow, but will stretch the table out based on how wide you have your email client stretched out. I tried a <div></div> container around the table, no help.

Any tricks or tips would be appreciated.

Re: Email Signature

OK. I found a solution to my concern.

What I discovered was I had pasted an entire HTML coded page into the signature area. <html><head><head><body><table>(all my table stuff here)</table></body></html>.

What I did in order to successfully make my signature work with html links and images was to simply paste only the TABLE, NOT the entire HTML code.

I used style="" in all my table containers such as <td style="display: block; width:200px; height:25px; border-collapse: collapse; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; padding: 0px; margin: 0px;"></td>. Worked like a champ in gmail, Xfinity webmail, Thunderbird, Apple mail (both Iphone and desktop).

 

Hope this helps anyone using a html table for their signature.

This is a question probably better asked in Thunderbird support.

Re: Email Signature

Thank you for your quick response.

Has anyone had a similar experience that I'm having with Xfinity signatures that could give me a tip or trick to the solution. I believe it's a question of controlling the container that the table is placed in.

We really don't troubleshoot problems like that here, and I haven't seen anyone post anything like it.  We mostly deal with send/receive issues and server settings.
