Info

The server-side signature template will be saved in CodeTwo’s proprietary .c2tf format.

Client-side signature templates are saved as three separate files of different formats (.html, .rtf, and .txt). If you didn’t configure a template in any of these formats, the file will be empty. In addition, all graphics used in the template are saved as separate files as well.

To load a signature template from a file into CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365, open the Signature template editor, click the Load from file button (Fig. 3.) in the Template group on Main tab and select the file you want to open.

To load a server-side signature template, you only need to open the .c2tf file. In the case of client-side signatures, you need to open all files that contain templates i.e. .html, .rtf and .txt (you can open them all at the same time). If you don’t open one of those files, a signature in that format will not be available.
