Administrators want to use a graphic-based file to be stamped when sending out email messages instead of using a text-based disclaimer.
The graphic file feature in a disclaimer is not yet supported in IMSS.
However, there is a workaround to add a picture or graphic file published as a URL link in the disclaimer. Publish the images as a link on your public web server. At the same time, you can set the URL link in the disclaimer to link to that particular resource.
The workaround is based on the following scenarios:
- IMSS uses Apache and not IIS Web Server.
- The installed Apache server no longer listens to port 80.
- For security reasons, it is not recommended to expose the IMSS server's web interface to the public.
To perform this workaround:
- Copy the images to your public web server and confirm that any user can access these images using a URL link.
For example, HTTP://www.mycompany.com/images/logo.gif.
- Log on to the IMSS management console.
- Open the policy for inserting disclaimer.
- Go to Action > Modify.
- Select Insert stamp in the body.
- Click the Edit button, and then add a new stamp or edit an existing stamp with the following line as stamp content:
<html><body><img src="http://www.mycompany.com/images/logo.gif%22%3E%3C/body%3E%3C/html>Make sure that the link after "src=" is the link that you set in the first step.
- Save the changes.
- Select the newly-added or edited stamp item as the stamp of the policy.
Make sure that the web server is accessible to the public when you send the disclaimer to the external recipients. External links to images from other sites may also be used. This is also supported in other versions as long as they can read the HTML tags.
