When you send an e-mail message from one of the Microsoft Office programs and you use Outlook as your e-mail program, an AutoSignature is not added to the message.


Add the signature manually. For example, to add a signature to an e-mail message sent from Microsoft Word 2000, follow these steps:

  1. In Word, on the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. On the General tab, click E-mail Options, and create and add an e-mail signature.
  3. Click OK and OK, to close the dialog boxes.
  4. In a Word document, on the File menu, point to Send To, and then click Mail Recipient.
  5. Position your insertion point in the message where you want the signature.
  6. On the Insert menu of the new mail message, point to AutoText, point to E-mail Signature, and then click to select your signature.
