Something to do with signatures as far as I know - see what options are listed for signatures.

Whilst I have not added a hyperlink in my personal signatures, I would imagine that its no different to adding any signature. Here are the instructions as given in Outlook Express:-

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.

Signatures come as just a text not hyperlink.
tried using micro word and notepad,but outlook would not accept it(as per stationar).

If you type in http:// etc, does it not turn into a hyperlink when viewed as html mail?

Signatures no

tried html tags in notepad no good

word no good as html or text.

OK - I'll bow out... sorry I can't help.

Or maybe I can convert you to another mailer: Becky! from rimarts.co.jp is my favourit (US$40) or Calypso if it is still available free.

I have just tried making a new signature, with an active hyperlink, in both Outlook 2003, and Outlook Express 6, and it worked perfectly in both cases.

I want it to work from OE not my documents(template).I want every mail created in OE via create mail or reply to mail to have this Hyperlink in it at bottom of mail.This way anyone on my LAN sending mail or replying via OE will have this Link in there.I don't want to tell evryone to send through template in my documents.I ned it to be in OE.Now maybe in your explanation you have this but I cannot get it to work I am still trying no luck

OK, I'm not very good at this but will this work -
Open a new message and put in the link you want and then go to file > save as > stationery give it a name and then apply that stationery when sending a new mail.

Or alternatively do you need to create a business card for yourself and then insert that in all outgoing messages.

I am just off to watch the rugby but I'll be back later and will have a play around to see what I can do (that is if nobody comes up with the solution before then)!
