Interested in adding an ActiveRain logo to your Outlook 2007 signature line but not sure how?  Want to let folks know you blog & where to go to find it with just a click? 

Adding the ActiveRain logo is easier than you thought, AR supplies the HTML, you just have to add it in!

Here's a not so quick tutorial that goes over it. 

*Please note, I use Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 and Windows Vista.

First, grab the HTML from ActiveRain's site.  Here's how you do that: 

When logged into AR, go to "My Home" on the bottom left hand side you will see "Link to Active Rain":

This will take you to five different AR logos w/HTML code next to it.  Pick the logo you want to use, and copy the HTML:

NEXT, you need to open up Notepad (text only editor) and paste the HTML in Notepad.  Then save your new Notepad document on your desktop, when you save make sure you "save as type" and switch it to "All files" vs. leaving it in text. 

 

NEXT, right click on your NotePad document you just saved to the desktop and Open with Microsoft Word

Saving Notepad to HTML

So, you've copied the HTML, pasted it in NotePad then closed NotePad and re-opened that document in Microsoft Word

Opening it with Microsoft Word turns it into what looks like an actual website & should open up your AR logo (after messing with it a bunch of times it started saving it directly into what looked like a website for me so don't be surprised if this happens right away, look for it on your desktop or in recent items).

Saving ActiveRain Logo to your Outlook 2007 signature

Now you can either select all or copy the logo. 

Now the fun part!  Adding your logo to Outlook! 

Go to your Microsoft Outlook & pick tools from the menu bar and then options  this will pop up your options box where you will pick Mail Format from the top menu bar and then Signatures from the bottom right.

ActiveRain logo to Outlook

This will bring up a new signature box where you can pick NEW or an existing one.

Give it a new name, then click ok.  Click on the body of the Signature line, Right click and there will be your new AR logo!

Next, click Ok, then close your Outlook and re-open!  Viola!  The next time you go to compose a new email it will have your AR logo in the body of your email.  This makes it EASY for folks to click on and view your blog! 

Thanks to Ron Spanton for asking this question of me today and giving me the opportunity to share it with others who might find it useful.

I wish I had seen this a few weeks ago. It would have saved me about 3 hours of trying to figure it out.
