    I HAVE A CUSTOMER NEEDING TO CREATE A TRUE TYPE FONT FOR THERE COMPANY LOGO. IT IS JUST TWO LETTERS BUT THEY WANT TO BE ABLE TO TYPE THE LOGO IN THERE EMAILS INSTEAD OF EMBEDDING THE LOGO.
    <DIR>Right now they embed that 55kb graphic in every e-mail they send internally.
    <DIR>55kb doesn't sound like much until you considered 22,000 mailboxes generating an average of 50 e-mails a day.
    ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED
    THANK YOU
    KEITH:help:

    If you have Corel Draw, some earlier versions allow ttf export. Newer version
    only type 1 fonts. Check you manual for directions.
    Basicly, set up a page for exporting one character at a time. characters should
    be 720pt.

    I dont see how typing the font into email will do any good, as the reciepient
    will need to have that font loaded for it to show up........

    <DIR>That's fine. i can automatically distribute the font to the client's desktop.

    Do you have CorelDRAW? What version? Check to see if it allows TTF export.

    Why not just link the logo..... why does it have to be embedded?

    Lots of variables, and a lot of potential ways to approach this. So the real question is why?
    A linked image can cause the message to be filtered as spam, but an embedded "font" may be lost if the client's end user chooses not to display the message in HTML.
    You can create a true type font fairly easily using Corel, and depending on how detailed you want to get, you an even set it up so your client can assign colors to each "charater" too.

    depends where in the email it's placed, like in a signature, if that's the case it shouldn't be a problem.... just an idea.
