      1. It worked
        I have an error in the signature
        One of the tests I’ve done is to enable the html signature and insert an embedded image in it (it is in the briefcase).
        Now, when I send an email, Zimbra webmail interface shows always the email with attachments (i.e. the image that I attached to my signature).
