    My Signature (Outlook 2003)

    My signature looks funny when I reply or forward SOME emails. I think it has to do w/formatting but I don't know how to fix it.

    Funny "ha ha" or funny peculiar? <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    I think you need to be a bit more specific about the nature of the funniness and the circumstances under which it occurs.

    By the way, when you create a signature, Outlook stores separate files for the Text and HTML and RTF versions. (That's for its built-in editor. If you use Word as your editor, apparently it's all different.) If you edited any of these signatures after first creating them, they might be out of sync or funky. In that case, creating it again from scratch might be easiest.

    Hello,
    My problem is that new mails have a good looking signature. With replies or forwards there is double line spacing. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Perhaps you are sending messages in plain text or RTF format, but you are sometimes replying to HTML formatted messages. In HTML, Enter causes a Paragraph break

    , which is double-line-spaced, and Shift-Enter causes a Line break [b], which breaks to the next single line. Try this: temporarily change your message format to HTML, then edit your signature using "Shift-Enter" for each line break. Close out of the signature dialogs, then reset your default message format to whatever was your preference. See what happens, post back your results.

    Hey John,
    Thanks for the reply. So far this is what I have done to remedy ther weird behavior. I created an HTM file in word with the signature the way I would like to see it. From there, I went into Outlook and selected advanced setup under the signatures dialog. From there it wants to see an .HTM file. I selected the one I created and it works fine. However, I will keep your suggestion in mind for other occurrences of this issue.

    Thanks,
    Mark
