  1. I did everything need to be done and email signature still gone after one or 2 days. How do i make it stay all the time ?

    1. Hi Lana,

      When you say the signature is gone after a couple of days, do you mean the whole signature or just images are not displayed? If you could send through a screenshot to [email protected] that would be helpful and we will be able to respond to your issue.

    1. Hi Genevieve,

      Thanks for letting us know. We will update the installation instructions within the next couple of days.
