Insert signature into email from scanning item to computer


P

Pearl King

I have a signature set up to go into new , forwarded and replied messages. It
works fine.
But, if I scan an item from my computer and tell it to send by email, when
that email comes up I have to insert my signature manually.
It never formats correctly. My name and the next line are separated by a
blank line, then two lines appear, then another blank line before the last
part of my signature.

Why won't it automatically appear in these messeages, and/or why when I
manually insert it, is the formatting off.

Using Office Outlook 2003, Windows professional XP.

Thank you

Programs use Simple MAPI to programmatically send content to the e-mail
client. See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messaging_Application_Programming_Interface

The Outlook option to include a signature gets used when *Outlook*
creates the new-mail item.

When manually inserting your signature, you are adding content in an
HTML document. Unless you know what are the HTML tags before or
surrounding your inserted text, you won't know what effect they have on
that inserted text. Also, you are probably using Word as your new-mail
editor instead of the one embedded in Outlook. Well, if you've used
Word then you know that hitting the Enter key results in starting a new
*paragraph*, not a new line. Spacing between paragraphs is larger than
spacing between lines and is part of the style you select when editing a
document in Word.

If you want to start a new *line* (instead of a paragraph) then you have
to use the proper keystrokes to do so. In Word, the Enter key starts a
new paragraph. You use Shift+Enter to start a new line.
