Adding A Signature File in Outlook 2010

Dear Computer Lady,

I have Windows Outlook 2010 and I would like to know how to put my signature at the end of each email without having to type it one at a time.

Thanks Valerie

Dear Valerie,

This is an excellent question.

I love being able to have signatures that automatically added to my outgoing messages.

In fact, at one time, I used Outlook’s signature files for about 20 messages that I commonly sent out to people.

Here is how to set up an outgoing signature in Outlook 2010

1. Open Outlook 2010

2. Click on the “File” tab in the ribbon, then click on, “Options”

3. In the Options dialog box, click on the “Mail” tab.

4. On the Mail page, the 3rd section down says, “Create or modify signatures for messages. Click the “Signatures” button in that section.

5. A “Signatures and Stationary” dialog box will open. Click the “New” button in this dialog box.

6. In the small dialog box that appears, type a name for your signature, and click “OK”.

7. In the lower box, type your name and contact information.

8. In the upper-right corner of the dialog box, select your email account if you have more than one.

9. Next to “New Message” make sure your signature name is displayed.

10. If you want all your replies and forwards to include your signature file, select your signature for that as well.

11. Now, click the “OK” button to save all your changes and close the dialog box.
