    Good morning!

    I have a problem with the signature feature using Word/Excel and Outlook. When I use the "Send To Mail Recipient (As Attachment)" in Word, Excel, Adobe etc. the signatures that I have set up for different email accounts doesn't show up in the body of the email. But if I just start a raw email message in Outlook the signature shows up just fine. Any thoughts on how to get the signature to show up using the Send To Mail Recipient feature?

    Thanks!

    When using the "send to mail recipient" feature in Windows XP it opens the Outlook Editor instead of Microsoft Office Word. The Outlook Editor only supports rich text and does not support HTML like Word.

    Signatures can be in rich text, they don't have to be in HTML.

    When using the "Advanced Edit" feature when creating a signature it opens Word. When you save the signature it will create it using HTML.

    If you create a second signature in plain text you can add it to emails you create using the "send to" feature by going to Insert, Signature, Signature Name (only plain text/rich text signatures will be displayed for insertion).

    So then you can't get Word/Excel to display the signature in an email automaically?

    Not when using the "Send to" feature built into Windows and Office. You would have to start a new email from Outlook then attach the file.
