Creating an Email Signature

Rather than type you information in at the bottom of every email that you send, it is much easier to set up a signature that Outlook can automatically place at the end of every email.

  1. From the menu bar, select Outlook -> Preferences.
  2. On the Outlook Preferences pane, select "Signatures."
  3. Click the "+" button to create a new signature.  In the panel on the right, enter the text for your signature.
  4. Once done, click "Default Signatures..."
  5. From the pull-down menu next to your email account name, select the signature that you just created.  By default, it is named "untitled."
  6. Click OK, then click the red close button at the top of the signature pane.

Now, when you open a new message, your signature will automatically appear.
