Email signature - 2 a/c's 1 pc

  kevin1967 08:57 01 Oct 2008

I am having trouble adding a second signature to outlook express - 2 directors are sharing a pc.

I go through the very simple procedure but the same signature is added to both email accounts. I have followed the instructions to the letter but it makes no difference.

It makes no difference which signature is set to default.

It appears to be such a simple task and I can't think what else to try.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Do you mean that you have created 2 mail accounts with same e-mail address but different Name on the Send? if so then I would say this is why its having problems

No there are 2 different email addresses - sorry may not have explained preoperly.

Then it should let you create two accounts. Did you click on create new account?

Taken from OE Help - you need the second part

To add a signature to outgoing messages

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Signatures tab.

To create a signature, click New and then either enter text in the Edit Signature box or click File, and then find the text or HTML file you'd like to use.

Select the Add signatures to all outgoing messages check box.


To use different signatures for different accounts, in the Signatures area, select the signature, click Advanced, and then select the account you want to use the signature with.
To use a signature on individual messages only, make sure to clear Add signatures to all outgoing messages. When you compose the message, on the Insert menu, point to Signatures, and then click the signature you want to use.
