If you’ve utilized the Microsoft Office 365 suite’s mail client, Microsoft Outlook, and you’re unsure how to configure, upgrade, or apply an Outlook signature adjustment. With the aid of this brief tutorial, which will walk you through the process, you can create a variety of unique signatures to compete with electronic business cards, images, social symbols, links, and more.
You can use a pre-made Outlook signature once it has been created or set it up to be automatically added to brand-new email messages before you send them. Enabling recipients to visit your website or other marketing resources directly from the email and making it simple for recipients to recognize the sender.
While you are writing an email, Microsoft provides you the choice to select an existing Outlook signature from a list, change an existing one, or create a new one to fulfil a different purpose. Simply follow the directions listed below to modify or add a new signature.
- Launch Outlook and start a brand-new email. 2. Select Signature > Signatures next. This will include both the templates you’ve already created and those that are now available for modification.
- Select New to add a fresh item to the list or Edit Signature to modify an already-existing template.
- As soon as you’re in the editor, you can quickly create your signature by typing, adding images, or—if your company provides code snippets for you to type in—adding digital business cards.
- After reviewing your updated Outlook signature template, click OK to complete the process.
- Start a fresh email to check how your revised signature appears. If you’ve created many, you may pick one to be the default and have it included to emails automatically, or you can simply choose between them as you type your email.
To select the default signature, just select the option and the template you want to appear on all new messages. As mentioned earlier, you can choose to change your signature when sending emails, giving you the flexibility to use different styles depending on the message and the recipient.
Setup or change your Outlook signature
If you’re having trouble coming up with one, Microsoft also offers an email signature gallery where you can easily design a “professional-looking Outlook email signature.” The gallery offers 20 different themes, and Microsoft allows you to freely customize each one to suit your needs without capping the number of times you may use it.
