Autosignature in Outlook 97

By nk ·
After setting up autosignature in Outlook 97, whenever I go to Word and select File - Send To - Mail Recipient, the autosignature does not appear on the Mail form. It appears in Outlook fine but not when I email from Word 97. Is there a setting that needs to be changed or selected?
Thanks

Outlook 97 uses email.dot as the template that contains your signature, for new messages.

Offhand I don't know if Word has an option for this, but that's the template you need to get wired in.

To insert your signature in the message, all you have to do is go to your Insert menu, down to signature and select the one you want. To have it automatically put it in for you, you have to change the format in which your email is being sent out. i.e. HTML, Rich Text, or Plain Text. For your signature to work your text format must either be Rich Text or Plain Text, not HTML. To change this, go to Outlook. Go to your Tools menu, down to Options. Then go to the Mail Format tab. The first area says "Send in this message format: HTML" Use this drop down to change the format to either Rich Text or Plain text and that should fix your problem!

When sending an email from Word, select File - Sent To - Mail Recipient; on the email menu bar select Insert - Signature and choose the signature you wish to include in your email. Send!!

I have had the same question but, have found no way to have Outlook automatically fill in my autosignature when sending a message from Word 97. I agree with others that you'll have to use the Insert > Autosignature option from the menubar.
