While I can find some scattered info on the topic, I can't seem to find a straight walkthrough (or even a definite answer)...

Basically I'm too low on the totem pole to start sending plain-text e-mails. My company requires an HTML signature that includes the logo image.

The problem is I'm fed up with GUI mail clients. Is it possible to configure Mutt in a way that would allow me to have all messages I write injected to an HTML template (with an embedded image)? Or will I just have to deal with Thunderbird's chaos?

Thanks for any help!

This is a huge hack, but somebody has already done the work for you.

Edit: What if you attached your signature as an HTML file?

mutt -e "set content_type=text/html" someone@somewhere.com -s "Hello" < mysig.html

Ah, yes I've seen this link. I was hoping to find a better answer floating around before I went ahead with all that... – Tammer Ibrahim Apr 19 '12 at 17:16
