Insert signature in Outlook

  hilvalen 10:05 12 Sep 2006

When composing an email in outlook I used to be able to click Insert/Signature/... and select one of a number of signatures that I had set up. Since upgrading to Outlook 2003, Signature has disappeared from the Insert menu. When I checked Help it says use Insert/Signature/... so I think my menue(s) has got corrupted somehow. Any thoughts please?

Insert - Autotext - Signature, then choose the signature you wish to insert.

Thanks but Signature is not one of the options after Insert/Autotext. The options are: Attention line, Closing, Header/Footer, Mailing instructions, Reference line, Salutation, Reference line

Go to create a new message. Then right click a toolbar, select Customise. Click Insert in the left hand pane then Signature in the right pane, keep the left mouse button depressed and drag it and drop it onto a toolbar.

Signature is still not one of the options.

It sounds as if you are using Word as your email editor. The easiest way would be to create a number of signatures (Tools - Options - Mail Format - Signatures) and set one as a default.

When you then create a new message, right-click on the default signature, and an option will (or should) appear giving a list of your different signatures to choose from.

You've got it! Word was selected as the email editor. I don't remember doing this deliberately. When I turn it off then Signatures appears again on teh Insert menu. Thanks!
