When you try to create an AutoSignature in Outlook, the Signature Picker button is dimmed and you are not able to create an AutoSignature when you compose e-mail messages.


To use Signature Picker, you cannot use Microsoft Word to edit your e-mail messages. To clear Word as your e-mail editor:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Mail Format tab.
  3. Under Message Format, click to clear the Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages check box.

You can now create an AutoSignature.


If you want to continue to user Word as your e-mail editor, you can use the AutoText feature in Word. For additional information, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
