LinkedIn - Outlook Signature [edit] This section tells you how to create a LinkedIn hyperlink in an Outlook Signature.

First rename the attached file to something like “View Will Hampton's profile on LinkedIn.gif” – the filename will “become” the text in a non-html mail reader (or anywhere where they have disabled that ability in clients that are natively able to do so).

File:Linkedin.jpg

Then open your Outlook Email Client (in the case of Outlook 2007 the following pictures will apply). Select Tools=>Options and the following screen opens:


Select the top tap “Mail Format” and then select Signatures


Create a new Signature or edit an old one… Here I’ve used “LinkedIn – Test”


Select the Picture Icon (the one that looks like a mountain with the sun behind it) and browse to the renamed file…


Select Insert and you return to the Signature Window with the “image” showing:


With the icon still selected click on the Hyperlink button (the one with the World and the Chain Link (Möbius Strip)).


Type in the URL to your LinkedIn profile and select OK – that’s all there is to it…

I’m using the following disclaimer for my Signatures (here is the whole signature I’m using for the professional ones <grin>)   New: R/ Will
