    Insert signature (Office 2002)

    Can anyone help me? I am trying insert a signature in a message. Previously in 2000 all I did was click Insert|Signature and then the signature I wanted to insert, I have several roles.
    The help in 2002 tells me to do exactly that but under insert there is no selection for signature <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23> . If I go to Insert|Autotext|Signature Outlook is picking up the user name, me.
    cheers

    Are you using Word as your email editor?

    Changed option and now works fine. But I have to ask why? I guess this another of those M$ idiosincracies. <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23>

    I guess it is because you would not normally be putting in a 'signature' as such when using Word.
    But, you could use one of Word's shortcuts to insert your signature for you:

    Create your signature in Word as you wish it to appear, including any formatting.
    Select the entire text of your 'signature'
    Insert > AutoText > AutoText
    Click on AutoCorrect
    Your selected text will automatically appear in the 'With' field.
    Enter 'sig' in the replace field.

    Now, when you type in sig (followed by a space or CR), your signature will automatically be added.

    (You can do the same to insert graphics - I have a scanned copy of my real signature which I add to faxes which are sent direct from my PC - but I would not recommend a graphic for emails.)

    Thanks again Leif.

    That's a very good solution as I have several titles eg MQI, GMSP, MHS

    Hey Leif,
    YOu really dont have to use Word to create your signature. If you open up Outlook, go to Tools Menu>Options>Mail Format Tab>Signature is down at the bottom and you can create as many as you want. You can edit and change alignment too. Hope this helps!

    Yes. But can those signatures be inserted when you are using Word as your email editor?
