If you want a more professional look to your emails, you can add a signature to your email account that attaches to new messages, replies and forwards. Outlook 2007 lets you do this using typewritten text, a handwritten signature or a picture or logo. The program even allows you to create and use more than one signature.

Create Signature

Click "New" to open a new message. The new message should open to the Message tab.

Click "Signature" in the Include grouping. Then click "Signatures." A new window should open to the E-mail Signature tab.

Click the "New" button and enter a name for the signature you're creating. Click "OK."

Type the contents of the signature in the Edit Signature box. You can format the text differently using the options at the top of the box. You can add an electronic business card by clicking "Business Card," a hyperlink by clicking "Insert Hyperlink" or a picture by clicking "Picture." Click "OK" when you've finished creating your signature.

Add Signature

Click "Signature" and then "Signatures" in the Include grouping of your message.

Click the drop-down arrow in the E-mail Account box and select the account for which you want to use the signature.

Click to select the signature you want to use in the New Messages drop-down menu.

Click the drop-down arrow in the Replies/Forwards box if you want to include the signature with replies and forwards for that account. Click "OK" to save your changes.


You can also manually insert a signature by clicking "Signature" and clicking the signature you want to include.
