    Easy signature macro (Outlook 2003 SP2)

    Those on high have introduced new signatures by default into new mail. I now have a default signature (which I will use about 10% of the time) and two others.

    As we don't use Word for editing mail, I can't switch signatures by a right click on the signature. What I want to do is to write a little macro which clears all the text from my email and inserts the signature I want. I'm quite happy to have a seperate macro for each signature.

    From browsing other posts, it looks as if signatures are not handled easily with macros......

    Any help gratefully received

    If you don't use Word as e-mail editor, you can simply use Insert | Signature to insert a signature. Outlook will show a list of available signatures as a submenu. No code needed.

    BTW if you use your "default" signature only 10% of the time, I'd set the default to <None> and use Insert | Signature as needed.

    You could use VBA to read text and HTML from disk and insert it directly into the message .Body (for plain text messages) or .HtmlBody. This works around the problem that it is difficult to figure out where the insertion point is in a message (so it is unreliable to use SendKeys or other methods to manipulate the menus and toolbars). Not sure it's worth the trouble. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
