    Hi all,

    I'd like to add an image to the signature, does anyone know how it can be done with HTML? Any help would be much appreciated.

    On the "Outgoing" tab in the account's properties, click "Edit Signature", select "Use HTML Signature" and then enter "test" for your signature.

    Then, close down Opera Mail. In the "mail" folder (see "Menu -> Help -> about Opera for the location), edit signatureN.txt (where N is the number for the account as seen in accounts.ini) with a text editor.

    In the text editor, what you want to do is use HTML markup to include an image.

    For example:

    <img src="https://example.com/imagea/test.gif">
    

    If you want an embedded image (that some mail clients will be able to load) instead of a remote one, you can use a data URI in the src= instead. See https://software.hixie.ch/utilities/cgi/data/data to create one.

    Save changes and start Opera.

    The reason you can't do this from the UI is that Opera Mail has a bug where it will crash when you add an image to a signature.
