Is there a way to assign a hotkey to insert a signature?

In what version of Outlook? With Word or the basic Outlook editor for email messages?

We're using MS Office 2003 Professional. Oultook is set to use its own
editor for e-mails.

Thanks.

I knwo that if you have Word as your editor, all you have to do is do a right click in the body of your message and you can select your signature.

Then you should be able to click the Signature button to add a signature.

In that scenario, you would need to

a) write a VBA macro to insert each signature (see http://www.outlookcode.com/codedetail.aspx?id=615)

b) add each macro to an Outlook toolbar

c) edit the macro caption to put an ampersand (&) in front of the character that you want to use as a hotkey with the Alt+ key.

Can someone verify this, is it true? When I use word as the editor I can't
find an easy way to insert a signature.

Yes, it's true for Office XP and 2003, with one caveat: You need to right-click on the existing signature. This means you need a default signature for Outlook to automatically insert.

Ok thanks,but is there a way around that caveat? I have some users that
don't want a default signature but they do want to have a couple to install
as needed.

The default signature could be as small as a couple of spaces.
