When we do a design for our customers, we make sure that you have the capability of sending HTML emails out through your zen cart store that has your logo on it.

For those that have had someone else do their design, here are some instructions on how to make your emails “pretty” for those customers that have selected HTML as their default email preference.

  1.  The first thing you need to do is have a logo to put in the email.  We usually name this image email-logo.jpg, and put the image file in your /email folder of your Zen Cart installation
  2.   As a general rule of thumb, the logo should be no wider than 550 pixels and no taller than 200 pixels.
  3.   Once you have the logo up on the server, you will need to edit all of the files that are in your /email folder so that the files pull the logo into the emails.  These files are:
    email-files
  4.   The code you will want to change in EACH FILE will look like this:
    <img src=”email/header.jpg” alt=”logo” />
    Once you find that code, simply change it to your actual logo image name, which in our case is email-logo.jpg.  Then your code would look like the following:
    <img src=”email/email-logo.jpg” alt=”logo” />
  5.   Log into your Zen Cart admin and mouse over the Configuration menu and go down to Email Options and make the following changes (if necessary).

Enable HTML Emails? – set to true
Email Admin Format? – set to HTML

6. In your admin, go to Configuration>Customer Details and make the following change (if necessary)
Customer Default Email Preference – set to 1, HTML

Keep in mind that the customer has the option to choose TEXT only emails, in which case a logo will not appear in their emails from your shopping cart.
