With the new upgrade to the Horde mail interface, you can now have images in your signature. For companies, the most common image to add is the company logo. Follow along with the instructions below as we demonstrate how to add your logo (or any other image) to your email signature in Horde.
  1. Log into your Horde mail interface.
  2. Once inside, hover over the cog image and then Preferences. Select Mail from the pop up menu.
  3. Now click on the Personal Information link.
  4. This page is where you set your signature. Scroll to the bottom area where the HTML editor is. This is the one with many different buttons. Find the image button and click it.
  5. Enter the image link in the URL field. You are not able to upload the image directly to the server, so you will need to know the exact address of the image on your server. For example, this image is located at "http://example.com/images/logo.png". There are various optional fields here you can use to further customize the logo's size and/or its position.
  6. After adjusting the options on the Image Info tab, it is a good idea to make the logo a link back to your website. Configure this tab for your logo to point to your website.
Below is a shot demonstrating the logo in a very simple test email. Note that you need to be sure to send the email in HTML format (by selecting a checkbox for HTML mail when composing) in order for the logo to be in the signature. If this is not done Horde will choose the text-based signature if you have created one.

Hello isaac,

Thank you for the additional information. I spent some time testing this, and you are correct. The HTML email option is not working on a mobile device. This seems to be a known issue with Horde, as it is listed on that bug report.

As a workaround, I was able to create an email signature in RoundCube, and use it on my mobile device.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,

Thanks for the question. If you're trying to use the HTML signature on a mobile device, it will not work. Also, if you have tried to set on your phone or other mobile device, then the signature setting get's reset as a plain text signature. This has been tested many times recently, so we are aware how it does work. You stated that your image is on your laptop. You will need to make that image available from a web source, or it will not work. Can you describe how and where you're trying to create the signature? Provide a few more details and we can see what's happening. Also, remember that we're providing directions based on the version of Horde that is loaded on InMotion's hosting servers- version 5.14.

Sorry again for the issues, please let us know if you still require assistance on the issue.

Hello Ms Atchaya,

There should be no other settings. Can you provide any information on your account? Or can you provide the steps you've taken to add the signature? We've tested this many times and we are aware that it's working. We do know that you're trying to make this work on a mobile device, then it does NOT work. If you're doing that, then unfortunately, there's no fix. Please provide is a little more info on the issue and we can help. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Thanks Arnel,

How can I add the .jpg from my laptop without using html or making the image available online?

Hello Matt,

If you have a web hosting account, you can always add the image on your account. Or, if you have an online image account (that is accessible to the web) or some other online account, you can upload the image there and then get the image URL. Horde is online webmail client, so unless you have direct access to that server, you would not be able to place the image there so that you can access it on the web. I hope this helps to clarify the issue. If you have further questions on the problem, please let us know.

I just added an email signature using Horde.   When an email is sent, however, the signature is hidden under an ... expand button.   Is there a way to have the signature appear outside of this?

Kind Regards,

the "expand" button is a feature of the mail client that is reading the email and not from the signature itself (Gmail typically does this). Unfortunately, there's no way to manipulate how the email client handles the message itself.
