PoliteMail makes it easy to use and reuse graphic images within your messages with the Add Image function.

By using PoliteMail’s Add Image function, you will keep your messages small and they will process quickly. The images are stored on the PoliteMail Server and referenced within the message. For a list of acceptable file formats see this article.

You still have the ability to paste an image into your email or use Outlook’s insert picture command, but the message size will increase and the send process may slow down, particularly when sending to large distribution lists. 

Here’s how to add an image:

  1. Select the image you want to replace or click where you would like to add the image within the message
  2. Go to PoliteMail > Add Image and choose Add Image from the bottom of the drop-down
  3. Browse to locate your image file and click Open
  4. The image will appear in your message

The image will automatically be saved in the Content Library. Any images you have previously used will be available for reuse within the drop down of the Add Image. You may also share saved images with other users in your account. See this article for sharing content.

To change the alignment of an image and it’s text wrap:

  1. Click on the image to select it
  2. Click on the alignment icon next to the Add Image icon to set the alignment to Left, Right or None
  3. You can also click on the icon to the top right of the selected image to access additional text wrap and sizing options

Quick tip: Images that are pasted or added via Outlook’s Insert Picture will be embedded into your email message.  When sending to recipients not using Outlook or accessing messages on mobile devices, these embedded images may appear as attachments at the bottom of the message.
