Click here to print this page.

Open your Outlook Express e-Mail Program and click Tools, then Options.

Step 1:  Click New and you will see "Signature #1" appear in the box beside this. Click Rename if you want to give it a name such as My Signature, or Main Signature, or anything you want!

Step 2:  Where it says "Edit Signature" type whatever you want here. There is a size limit on the number of words you can put in your signature, but it is pretty big, so go for it! If your signature is too long, Outlook Express will warn you :)  Some of our signatures have over 100 words! 

Step 3: If you want your signature to show up whenever you send an email, click Default. You do not need to set a signature as your default though!

Step 4: Now click Apply and OK.

Now you are ready to start sending mail with signatures! This will work on plain mail or stationery!

Click Insert, then Signature in the letter you are sending. Pick the signature you want to include. If you chose to make your signature "Default" you do not have to do this step. It will automatically add when you click SEND

If you did not choose your signature as a Default, you will have to do this step to add a signature to your outgoing mail. Or, if you have several different ones and want to choose a different one you will do this step.
