Trouble setting up signature in Outlook 2003



Had a HDD crash and re-installed all of my programs. Set up OL 2003
with MULTIPLE email accounts.

Don't want a signature on my primary account (the one that shows up
alphabetically) but I want to have a signature on the second account.

I have set up a simple signature which is just an image. I created a
new signature by naming it and then browsed to the image file and
added it. It looks good. I applyed it and went to the Mail Format
tab, selected the second email account, and set it to use the newly
created signature.

When I click on NEW to send a new message I automatically go to my
primary account. In the past, when I clicked on ACCOUNTS and selected
my secondary account, the signature would appear. Now it doesn't and
I have tried everything but no luck.

One more bit of info. If I set up my primary account to use the
signature, the signature will appear. Then, when I go to ACCOUNTS and
select my secondary account, the signature appears.


Anybody got any suggestions??




It's working as designed. You need to create a blank signature for the
primary acount because if it doesn't have a signature, the code that
controls the signature isn't added to the message, so switching accounts
won't switch signatures. Also, for switching to work you need to use
Word as the editor.
