-Placing images in signatures can be very annoying for the recipient. This especially applies if you embed the image in the email itself, as that means that the recipient **must** download the image. We have seen cases where the signature contains images of 200kB - which are only of vanity purposes for the sender; the recipient does not want to see those images. Remember the recipient may be reading your email on a mobile device with slow Internet speeds and a usage limit (or paying per MB), so don't fill it up with unnecessary images! Only include images if the recipient will want to see them.+Placing images in signatures can be very annoying for the recipient.

 If you MUST include an image in the signature, then you should link to an image on your website rather than embedding the image in the email itself. This gives the recipient'​s email client the option of whether to download the image or not (eg on mobile devices). Because of this, the signature facility built into VPOP3 will only let you link to an external image, rather than embedding it in the message itself. Big companies such as Amazon, eBay etc, will all link to images on their site rather than embedding them in their messages, so this is not anything unusual. If you MUST include an image in the signature, then you should link to an image on your website rather than embedding the image in the email itself.
