Usage is absolutely straight forward, just set the option Export.Mail.SignatureName to either the name of an Outlook signature or a full path to a file including its file name but not the extension. We expect at least two files there, one with the extension *.htm and one with *.txt for each of the body formats. Depending on the body type(s) of your mail, we’ll then add the associated signature to the very end of the mail. Sounds easy enough but still was a challenge (think mixing different HTML files to get a picture). To make it crystal clear – Outlook is not required for this feature to work. It should just work fine with any client.
The MailJob classes and the LsMailSendFile API also support this feature. A code sample for .NET (actually it’s adapted from our existing C# Export Sample):
// create export configuration ExportConfiguration exportConfiguration = new ExportConfiguration(_exporterTarget, fileNameTb.Text, "simple.lst"); exportConfiguration.ShowResult = _showFileCheck.Checked; LL.ExportOptions.Clear(); LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportSendAsMail, "1"); LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailTo, "combit GmbH <SMTP:firstname.lastname@example.org>"); LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailSubject, "combit List & Label mail test"); LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailShowDialog, "1"); LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailSendResultAs, "text/html"); LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailProvider, "XMAPI"); LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailBody, "Test"); LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailHtmlBody, "<html><head></head><body>Test</body></html>"); LL.ExportOptions.Add(LlExportOption.ExportMailSignatureName, "standard"); // Start export LL.Export(exportConfiguration);
In this case, the signature is just referenced by its name. Thus, it’s loaded from the Outlook signature directory (typically %userprofile%AppDataRoamingMicrosoftSignatures). And running this code of course results in the following (excuse my German Outlook) – my standard signature appended to the hand crafted mail.
