Transcript:Create Email Signatures in Outlook ExpressHi, I'm Don Schechter for About.com Computing. Today I'm going to show you how to set up signatures in Outlook Express.
What is an Email Signature?A signature is a small piece of information that will be added to all of your outgoing emails. Some people include their contact information, while others put a link to a Web site or an interesting quote.
Create an Email SignatureTo get started, go up to Tools and click on 'options.' Go to the Signatures tab, and click 'new.' Type the text that you want to appear in the box under Edit Signatures. Click on 'rename,' and give your signature a name.
Now click on 'new' to create a second signature. Type in some text, and don't forget to give it a name as well. You can click on 'set as default' for this signature, and hit 'apply.'
Insert Text or an HTML FileNow, if you have a Text or an HTML file, you can also use that as your signature. Just click on 'new,' and instead of typing something in, click on the File button. Click 'browse' and locate your file. Click 'open,' and now give it a name.
Use Signatures for Multiple Email AccountsIf you have multiple email accounts set up, you can specify which signature goes with which email account.
First, click on the signature you want to use. Click on the Advanced tab. Choose the email account that you want the signature to belong to. Choose as many as you'd like. When you're done, click 'OK.'
Add Signature to Outgoing MessagesNow, make sure to click on the box that says 'Add Signatures to All Outgoing Messages.' Now you can choose whether you want to add signatures to replies and forwards. Click 'OK,' and go up to Create Mail.
There's your signature, all ready to go.
