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

You still have the ability to paste an image into your email or use Outlook’s insert picture command, but the email size will increase. This will cause the send process to slow down, particularly when sending to large lists. By using PoliteMail’s Add Graphic Image function, you will keep your list mailings small and fast.

Here’s how to add a logo, banner, picture or other graphic image to your email message:

1. Within Outlook’s email editor, place the cursor where you want the image to appear or select the image you want to replace.

2. Click PoliteMail > Add Image , browse to your image file (web format .jpg, .gif or .png) and then click Open.

Add Image

3. The image will appear in the body of the message (placed by reference) and will automatically be saved in the Content Library. Any images you have previously used will be available for reuse when you click on the Add Graphic Image button. You may also share saved graphic images with other users in your account.

To access saved images, go to Content > Images under your main PoliteMail tab. To share saved images, check off the box next to the image and click on Actions > Set Sharing. You can add new graphic images through this tab as well.

4. To wrap text around your image: select the image and use the Align Left, Right, or None buttons.

Note that if you paste in images or use Outlook’s insert picture function (instead of PoliteMail’s Add Graphic Image) your images will be embedded into your email message as file attachments. They won’t display as file attachments when sending to other Outlook users, however if you send to other email programs such as an iPhone, Hotmail or Gmail the images will show up as file attachments.
