[Outlook] Create your signature and choose when Outlook adds a signature to your messages

Solution

Create your signature and choose when Outlook adds a signature to your messages

Note: If you have a Microsoft Office 365 account, and you use Outlook and Outlook on the web or Outlook on the web for business, you need to create a signature in each. To create and use email signatures in Outlook on the web, see Create and add an email signature in Outlook.com or Outlook on the web.

If you want to see how it's done, go directly to the video below.

  1. Open a new email message.

  2. On the Message tab, in the Include group, choose Signature > Signatures.

    Signature command

  3. Under Select signature to edit, choose New, and in the New Signature dialog box, type a name for the signature.

  4. Under Edit signature, type the signature,

    Type a new signature to use in your email

    Notes: 

  5. Under Choose default signature, set the following options for your signature:

    In the E-mail account list, choose an email account to associate with the signature. You can have different signatures for each email account.

    In the New messages list, choose the signature that you want to be added automatically to all new email messages. If you don't want to automatically add a signature to new messages, choose (none).

    In the Replies/forwards list, choose the signature that you want to be added automatically (auto sign) when you reply to or forward messages. Otherwise, accept the default option of (none).

    Type a new signature to use in your email

  6. Choose OK to save your new signature and return to your message. Outlook doesn't add your new signature to the message you opened in Step 1, even if you chose to apply the signature to all new messages. You'll have to add the signature manually to this one message. To add the signature manually, select Signature and then pick the signature you just created.
