    Outlook 2000 Question

    I have Office 2000 which I upgraded from Office 97 and I want to use Word as my default email editor.

    The problem is that I am then unable to tell Outlook that I want to use signatures (and which one to use!). All the options relating to the signatures are greyed out.

    Is this a known "feature" and is there a way to get Outlook to use a signature for my emails?

    Thanks in advance for the responses.

    The only way to use Signatures with Word as your default email editor is to set up an AutoText entry with your AutoSignature.

    In Word, type your Signature as you want it to appear (with formatting and all) and add it into AutoText. If you add a shortcut button for your Signature on your toolbar in Word, it'll show up on your toolbar in Outlook, too.

    Hope this helps!

    James,

    I'd think twice about using Word. Check out WOW and/or review the articles in the MS KB, so that you'll know what you may be getting into. <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15>

    BTW, with office 2002, word mail is much improved. It's definitely worth trying out and making up your own mind.

    If you use Word as your email editor, you define signature through Word: Tools/Options/General select the "email options" button and then fill out your signature in the email signature tab.

    Hope this works for you as it does for a number of users I support.
