Windows live mail advice please

How do I select which signature to add to messages in OE I just selected signature and then I could chose which one to add, I can't get my head around Windows Live, it always uses the default regardless of having others in the file.

Set your signatures up in Tools - Options - Signatures tab. Then when writing your message go to Insert - Signature and select the signature you want to use.

That is what I do but it still inserts the default and will not let me choose which one I want.

Should have said this is on reply messages not new ones. I have it set to do not add signatures to replies or forwards as I do not want them on forwarded messages.

When you click on Insert and Signature in the message do you have the various options displayed?

Possibly you have the wrong box checked. Go to Tools - Options - Signatures tab and make sure the box beside Add Signatures to all outgoing messages is NOT ticked - click Apply and OK.

Itwas ticked and I have not taken that off, but when I reply to a message it doesn't allow me to choose which one it inserts the default

Sorry - didn't see your posting about replies. On replies unfortunately you can only select the default signature.

That would explain it, thanks. Shame MS don't ask users what they want.
Take care.

Yes, it seems to be a backward step
