Outlook signatures

By seskds ·
Formerly, I was using Windows98 and Outlook 2000,
but now I have Windows2000 and Outlook 2002. I used to be able to type in my name (possibly was also the name of the signature file) at the end of an e-mail message, press <enter>, and then it would insert my default signature. Can I do this in Outlook 2002, if so, how?

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.

Under Signature, click the Signature for new messages drop-down menu, and then click the signature you want to use.

Click the Signature for replies and forwards drop-down menu, and then click the signature you want to use.

Click OK.

well, if Word is your email editor (the default) then you should be able to use AutoText. it won't kick off working until you set it up and use it once. here are the instructions for setting up autotext for a signature. once you set it up, manually pick your name from the list the first time. then, subsequently when you begin to type your name, autotext should pick it up and prompt you to hit enter to finish...
how to use autotext: start new email, pick insert Autotext, pick your name from the list. here is how to get your name in the list:
---
Create a drop-down list of AutoText entries
On the Insert menu, click Field.
Under Categories, click Links and References.
Under Field names, click AutoTextList.
Click Field Codes.
Click after the field name in the Field codes box, and then type the text that you want to appear on the screen within quotation marks ? for example, "Signature List".
To display AutoText entries formatted with a style different from the one applied to the field code, click Options in the Field dialog box, click the Field Specific Switches tab, and then click \s under Switches. Click Add to Field, click in the Field codes box, and then type the name of the style within quotation marks.
When the user's mouse pointer rests on the field and ScreenTips are on, a tip tells the user how to display the list of AutoText entries. To change the ScreenTip text, click Options in the Field dialog box, click the Field Specific Switches tab, and then click \t under Switches. Click Add to field, click in the Field codes box, and then type the text that you want to appear in the ScreenTip within quotation marks.

Thank you very much, your answer helped me out tremendously - great detailed instructions. I also found an article on Microsoft's support site (292085)that was very helpful.

Similar to answer #2, it sounds to me as if you had a rule set up in your previous version to add a 'signature'. Even if you reject this answer, I thank you for giving me the idea on how to personalize my signatures.
