Setting up Outlook to use stationery & signature

Windows is XP Pro and Office is 2003 SP2. Although I am working on the network, I am only affecting my own PC at present, so I don't have a network problem (YET!!).

I am setting up the new Outlook system and need to arrange for a both a corporate footer which all emails will use, and an individal signature, which will be differnt for each person on the system.

I have designed my signature, which is Black Arial 10, except for the e-mail address, which is Black Arial 10 underlined. I have also designed a basic corporate footer which is Black Arial 10, set the background colour to white

I can set up each to work well in isolation, but, when I run both together, I find that the stationery amends the signature in 2 very unfortunate ways:

1. It inserts an extra line between each line of the signature

2. It changes the colour so that, apart from the e-mail address all the rest is a very pale yellow which appears almost the colour of the background.

I have tried using background turned on and turned off in the stationery, without any joy.

Any ideas about how I might overcome this problem, or any suggestions about how how I might better set this up?

I want to avoid having to set up a single signature covering both on every PC, especailly as most will want their own style of signature, but we want the footer to be standard for all.

Manythanks

I would try the signature without the underline format as an email address would automatically create this underline.

Also try the background colour with the default colour.

Sorry, I meant that the underlining was automatic - not thta I had set it that way. Also, I now realise that the font colour is being reset to white except for that email address line. This is becuase I can now also see that anything I write into the email is coming out the same way as the rest of the signature. So, somehow, the combination is amending the font colour to white - the same colour as the page. I suppose we could get round this by having a differnt colour paper, but this would not meet our professional image, so I still need to find a way to stop the font colour changing. And there's also those additional lines in the signature.

Many thnaks for your effort though.
