I'm trying to customize the different newsletters on our site, so each has it's own logo and such.  However, when the newsletter is sent it seems to be still including the site's logo instead.  I'm customizing MAIL.tbl, which I've copied and renamed for each newsletter,; placing the edited file in themes / default / templates_custom folder.  Each new template is showing up in the drop down while creating the newsletter, so I'm assuming I'm editing the correct files.  Below is a copy of the contents for my music newsletter.  Can anyone telling me what is wrong?


{$,It is advisable to edit this MAIL template in the default theme, as this will ensure that all mail sent from the website will be formatted consistently, whatever theme happens to be running at the time}

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{$LANG*}" dir="{!dir}">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset={$CHARSET*}" />
<title>Chip McCain On Stage</title>
<body style="font-size: 12px" class="email_body">
   <div style="font-size: 12px">
      <p><a href=""><img src="" title="Chip McCain On Stage" alt="Chip McCain On Stage" /></a></p>

      <div class="box box___mail"><div class="box_inner">

Looks like the reason you are getting the default logo might be because the "Vintage%20Microphone(1).png" image does not exist and the system is replacing the missing image with a place holder which happens to be the default logo. Try "Vintage%2520Microphone%281%29.png", which is what the image is called on the rest of your site.

The %2520 is a double encoded space, implying that when the image was first uploaded it either already had the space encoded as %20, or the system somehow encoded the name twice.

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

Thanks.  You know I didn't think of that.  I have my screen reader set to punctuation off, so I'm not hearing the % sign.  You're right.  The file was named that to begin with, and I thought it was just 20 instead.  Again thanks and that did the trick.  To make it easier in the future I just went in and renamed it on the server and reassigned my logo while I was at it.
