I was wondering if anyone ever tried to use inline svg structure into their signature. I use this om my apple mail and want to use it in outlook for Mac as well. The problem is I can nog make it work because I can not add HTML signature to outlook.
I want to use this because I see a lot of FWD emails with attached images of all logo and icons. By using inline svg this problem is solved and everything will always stays in place.
Does anyone know how I maybe can use this type. And not by adding a image and than select a svg file because than it still will be added as a separate fill and not encoded in the signature. I hope someone has a solution for this.

So you should go to the following link: https://www.base64-image.de/
Then you should do the drag and drop as you see in the picture
Then copy the code of the picture
and paste it in the following string <img src="[[HERE]]" />
Create an html page and paste the following string <img src="[[HERE]]" />
Open page with browser:
I hope I have been helpful

@sdudnic to use an SVG you need to change the HTML of the signature
but you have to post the image otherwise, whoever receives your email does not have the possibility to see the image
I suggest you convert it to base64

Hello, @rubenlourens, I also understand the advantages of SVG format in signature, it supports animation, gradients, transparency, and scalable.
The first thing you should understand - you can only add an SVG signature in the web version or the Office 365 version of Outlook.
The second thing you should remember is that SVG signature file must be on an online image hosting site. Then you have to copy that file’s link and embed that link in the Outlook web’s HTML code with an image source tag.
System issues and ransomware errors are common problems any administrator faces, so make sure to be prepared in advance and to have great backup options for your Outlook, Microsoft Teams, and Microsoft 365 environment.

Terry, that is incorrect about SVG requiring the web version. If you follow the steps I posted above (or a slightly better version at https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/all/add-a-vectorial-svg-picture-in-outlook-sig..., look for the long reply from GraniteStateColin with the 14 step list), it will work with the desktop version of Outlook. It does have some quirks, like if the SVG file is larger than a few dozen KB, Outlook wants to convert it to a UUencoded PNG file inside the sig HTM file, but you can forcibly override that.
