Signature will not Insert

Hello,

I have Outlook managing three accounts. I have associated a signature
with one of those accounts for new messages.

When I hit "New" to write a new message, and then hit the drop-down
"Accounts" button and select the account associated with the signature,
nothing happens.

The account associated with the signature is not the default account.
If I associate the signature with the default account, then it appears
when I hit "New" and will disappear if I select a different account.
But not vice-versa, as explained above.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

steve

Do you have a default signature for each account?

No, I don't have a default signature for each account. I only have a
signature for one account.

Would a default signature for each account fix the problem?

thanks

No, I don't have a default signature for each account. I only have a
signature for one account.

Would a default signature for each account fix the problem?
I think it would. The automatic signature choosing is predicated upon a
default for each account. That default can be a signature file containing a
single space, if you don't want to see a default signature.

You also need to use Word as your email editor for the signature to default
to a specific account already defined in Outlook's Tools->Options->Mail
Format->Signatures.
