At the top of the “Reply To” box is a formatting bar. It allows you to format your text (Bold, Underline, Alignment, etc.) as we as undo/redo, and add images.


Adding Images

Click the “Add Images” button on the format bar to get a new dialog box. 

Click the “Folder Search” icon. A window will open that allows you to chose images from your device.

Image Description: Optional

Dimensions: Optional, but I suggest “800” in the first box.

NOTE:  File formats limited to JPG, GIF, and PNG format.  Please try to reduce the file size of your photos to reduce or server storage requirements and to speed up the display of the image.


Print Instructions

Print is unique to each device. From your browser you can typically goto the “File Menu” and choose “Print“.
