6) You have the button inserted, now you need to link the button to your RMA profile. This allows recipients of your emails to be brought to a web page when they click on your button.

6B. Next, go to your email signature and highlight the button image by holding the left-click and dragging your cursor.
6C. Go to "Link" option and click on it.
In the popup, go to "To what URL should this link go to" and paste in the URL from 6A.

(TO BE UPDATED: 2018 TUTORIAL FOR MAC OS)
Note from Support Team: We will have this section updated to 2023 for Mac Users soon. In the meantime, please refer to the guide below or check out this tutorial for detailed instructions.
1) Log into your account and go to the Widgets tab.
2) Then go to the widgets page and select the button you'd like to use in your email signature. Save the image.
3) Before you leave the page, copy the coding below the button.
4) For this example, we're using the Mailbox app on an Apple Computer (Macbook), but we'll also include an example on Gmail after.
Go into Preferences, under the Mail tab, and then go into Signatures. Click and drag the button image that you previously saved into the box.
6) You'll now want to add a link to the button, so that viewers can click on the button and it will go to your reviews.
Right click on the image, select "Link", then select "Add Link".
Note: If the "Add Link" and "Link" selections are not appearing, simply highlight the image. While the image is highlighted hit the "command" and "K" keys on your keyboard simultaneously.
In the box that pops up, you're going to want to put in the code. Once you've done that, you want to select only the web address of the widget. It will look something like this:
Press OK, and you're set.
