    signatures tied to addressee (2003 )

    This is a feature that I have submitted many times to Microsoft. Is there a way to tie a signature to an email address? By this I mean, can I have a specific signature for professional correspondence, personal, buddies, etc. Then when I select the address I am sending an email to, have Outlook automatically put the correct signature with that message? I wouldn't want to send an email signed "With all my love" to my boss and I think it is just easier to not have a signature created and just type the signature appropriate to the receiver with each email.

    I really think that this is something that would be a huge feature if it existed or could be added by a third party vendor.

    Thanks,

    Re: signatures tied to addressee (2003 )

    I agree that it's a significant omission in Outlook; it would be logical to have signatures selected on the basis of Categories. Nothing quite as annoying as emaiing the Bride from work with a message that ends "Sincerely, JohnBF, Exalted Business Title". <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Through Outlook 2003, nothing can be done in VBA directly with signature files, as the signature object hierarchy is not exposed to VBA. Signature text files could be hooked to the Item.Send event; the code would have to handle multiple recipient issues but would otherwise be uncomplicated. Oddly there do not seem to be any 3rd party efforts on this, Ornic's website doesn't show anything, though I thought that their ex-Life product handled signatures. You might look at http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/live_signatures/ to see what it does.
