Signature in Relies, Forwards?


J

Jim McGowan

Using Office 2003, I have two different signatures set up in
Outlook>Tools>Optios>Mail Format; one for new messages, and another
for replies and forwards. I also am using Word 2003 as an editor for
Outlook.

When replying to any message that was originally addressed to my
default email account, the correct signature is auto-added.

However when replying to a message that was originally addressed to
another of my email accounts, no signature at all is inserted.

Outlook>Tools>Options>Mail Format has the correct signatures set up,
and they also show correctly in Word>Tools>Options>General>E-Mail
Settings...

Any thoughts? Thanks.

You have signatures configured for every account?
No, just two signatures: One with my website, contact info, etc., and
one with just my name for replies.

The first is set to apply automatically on new messages, and the
second is set for replies only.

create a blank one or assign one of these sigs to the other account. oh, and
you are using word as the editor, correct?

If you have a sig for each account (even just a blank sig - I put in --
[enter] for the blank one so I can see where it begins) when you change
accounts the sigs will change. But once you choose an account with no sig,
changes to that message won't change the sig.

Yes on the Word question.

(Sorry for tthe delay posting back, but I must have clicked "Get new
headers" during a server maintenance period - lost all the messages in
this group and got a bunch of blank messages dated in 2031!!) :O

OK - I finally get it, Diane!! (I think).

At first I had no idea what you meant by account - I forgot/missed
completely that in Tools>Options>Mail Format there is a combo box for
Email account. I knew that from when I was using Outlook for my email
a couple of years ago, but I just forgot about it altogether. And I
wasn't seeing that combo box when I was assigning my sigs.

If I drank, I'd stop!

Thanks.
