Problem editing or creating signature for email

Q: Problem editing or creating signature for email

Hi,

My company recently moved to a new location and I was having everyone change their email signature in Outlook. Unfortunately, 2 of the employees were unable to select anything in their email options. They are both using Outlook 2003 SP2 Small Business Edition. When I tried changing it is has the current signature option but the drop down to change between the sigs is gray and the box to edit isn't available. I also tried to change it within the email itself by right clicking on the current signature and selecting the option but that is also all grayed out. The only benefit in this screen is it will actually let me choose between the different sigs currently available, but still won't let me edit or create a new one. Has anyone else had this problem or know a way of fixing it?

Hi, Can anyone be kind enough to help me.

I have Windows Mail and am trying to create a signature with an image.

I followed the the process of creating an html file (with image and text), which I did. I have created the html file and loaded it correctly into tools/signatures etc. This is fine.

The problem is when I created the "source code", copied the code to noted pad and saved the file as .html, when I now open a new email it seems the source code also included the Edit-View-Preview tabs.

So when I now open up a new email as well as my image and text it also includes the edit,view and preview tabs, and I don't know how to solve this.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

This is driving me nuts !

I used an internet tutorial a few weeks ago to help me create a manual signature to my emails. No problem !
I now wanted to add my telephone number. So , I modifed my word file , then saved it , then overwrote the .htm file that I had created the opther week.

I then went into Outlook Express deleted the previous signature details and started again (an overkill maybe , but I thought maybe you can't be too careful).
I then tested it and got the error message "Warning : your signature file is too large. It has been truncated. Please make the file smaller."
Now I cannot get ANY signature no matter how I try !

Anyone got any bright ideas ?

We are using a virtually server and cannot add any software at the Exchange server level. We have office in the US and Canada.

Our PC's are running Windows XP with Outlook 2010. We would like Outlook to send / respond to e-mails that are assigned to the Canadian Contacts category, or that have a .ca extension to their e-mail addresses with a separate signature (Canadian Address info) than the standard one.

Templates rules simply send a blank e-mail with the proper signature (Does not allow us to type anything before sending) so that didn't work. The only custom action we could perform would require purchasing 3rd party software to accomplish this. We are considering this.

The other option seems to be writing a script to perform this action but we have no idea how to accomplish this. Should we attempt ourselves or hire a coder?

Any feedback in solving this issue is most appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Creating a Rule in Outlook 2010 for signature deployment

The Outlook object model has an event called ItemSend that is fired when you attempt to send the email. You just need to add some logic to grab the email addresses from the .To field and if it contains the format or string you are looking for you can add the signature programatically.

Google Outlook ItemSend for more info and and also take a look at the link below that explains how to add the signature using VBA.

Im after a program for editing Audio files. I have played around with Cool Edit but find it isnt very friendly. i can never seem to be able to do basic functions that i would expect from an audio editing program. i also want a program that i can use to creat audio files. i had a friend who had a great program where you had multi tracks and could choose an instrament and set it to play what ever note u want and then mix it all together. sadly i have fallen out of contact with him, and cant remember what the program is called. does anyone have any suggestions on a program that would do such functions? thanx

The other thing i wanted to ask about (i didnt want to start two threads). is my tv capture program has messed up. it was working fine untill all of a sudden when i open it, it takes a freeze frame of the selected channel, keeps it on screen with no audio, and then ends up "not responding". the program is called VisionTV . i doubt people would know it. but can anyone think of a reason as to why this problem maybe occuring? i want to get a different program to use, as this one isnt very good. but is it true that these programs are specific to the tvcapture card that they come bundeled with? thanx guys

Hi, I have T460p/Windows 7 x64 with Access Connections 6.26.80 installed. Laptop is not on domain, users are part of Administrators group.Access Connections worked for some time fine - new networks were detected and location profiles could be created, edited or deleted without any problems.Buttons for Create/Edit/Delete profile suddently became disabled (probably after some Lenovo update) and I am not able to get this program working normally again.I've tried several things:- ticked checkbox for non-admin users to be able to edit location profiles, but this did not help. - uninstalled AC, reboot, installed again (installation was done using admin account)...but no success, everything is the same - I cannot add or edit location profiles even I am operating as admin user,- tried with previous AC versions (79) and newer versions (85) - but again no luck. I could uninstall it and not use it again, but to use some other simillar software. But since the laptop has WWAN, now I am not able to use it, since I have no possibility to add or configure WWAN network access. Also I am not able to create WLAN hotspot. I have no idea what to do else, except to reinstall Windows again, but it could happen again...so that is not actual solution to this problem. Anyone had this issue? Thanks in advance!

Hello,

We already have already set up Outlook to include a signature on all outgoing email but some of our emails are generated from reports within Access and Sge Line 50 (Accounts package) and these don't include the signature.

The easiest option for Access would be to include the signature text in the report code but this would not include the name of the person that sends it.

As the emails created from these software packages open in Outlooks email editor is it possible to have the signatures automatically inserted in them.
TIA
 

A:Email Signature - MS Access & Sage

I do not about Sage, but in Access you can include the name of the Person sending the email if Security is being used. I used a User Table to hold the person's Name,work ID, Position or Title, email and telephone number, which can easily be incorporated at the end of the Text being sent.
I think it is also possible to invoke the Outlook Signature using VBA, but I haven't seen the code for it, it may depend on what VB code you currently use to create the email.

I have seen an old post on here that mentions the best way to use headed paper in an email is to create a signature instead:

"The convention is to create a signature for e-mail messages containing the company logo and/or masthead. E-mail messages are supposed to be small. You do not want to use a full Word template with leader head for e-mail."

However I cannot seem to get images to appear in the signature or even the written document - they just appear as a blank square. What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks!

How can you put your personal signature on the computer where you can use it to sign a document such as a proposal?

I have seen emails or attachments that had the personal signature but can not figure out how they did it.

I am not talking about a signature that would have info on it but a copy of your actual handwritten signature.
 

A:Personal signature on email or Word

For a written look, use a cursive font. Take a screenshot of it and save as gif or png so you can make the background transparent if you want to use it on colored backgrounds (transparency doesn't matter if you only use it on white).
Resize and crop the pic to the desired finished size and just insert it.

If you want your actual signature, scan it in and do the same.

Without exception, I received the ones without the signature and did not receive the ones with the signature ... from either computer.
