Older´s versions I was able to create HTML signatures or even use Word to create/edit my signatures. Today, within the Outlook 2010, I have to use this poor WYSIWYG window wich not allows me to create a rich data organization. Just for an example, I want to create a table to put an image on a right side of the signaure (<table> tag) and I can´t.

What should I do?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Flag,

The editor of Signatures in Outlook 2010 still uses the word format and support HTML tages and attributes such as:

a href="" title=""

bbr title=""> \

The easiest way to do this might be to write up the signature in word or notepad, test it in an HTML editor and paste it into your signature.

I'm a little confused on the table you're trying to create within your signature but nonetheless this should work for you.

Sure no problem.

The path for adding an Outlook Signature in Outlook 2010 is as follows: (there are actually 2 ways).

The first:

Go to File - Options and the third options from the top will be signatures. Click on Signatures. Here is a screen shot.

The Second option is to create a new email. Go to the insert tab then to the "include group" (which is the first group then "signature".

Hope this helps.

I have an answer to this:

Go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures .

Delete Default.rtf and Default.txt.

Edit Default.htm.

In Outlook 2010, go to File/Options/Mail/Signatures and make some minor change to the signature, like adding and removing a space, then press OK - this will re-create Default.rtf and Default.txt to match your edits.

That's it.

Hi,

1. To create a signature in Outlook 2010, click on the Office button on the top left hand corner and this will open the menu. Click the options button at the bottom of this window.

2. In the Outlook Options window, select the mail tab and here you can see signature options available. Click on the Signatures button and this will open up the Signatures and Stationary window.

3. In the Signatures and Stationary, add your signature for the email account you want. You can add multiple signatures here and select which one to display.

Once you have done, click on OK button and you can see the signatures in action.

You are right @michelsmith, there is a much easier way to create a signature in Outlook 2010 than what I posted. But I think the original poster wanted to know how to edit the signatures by editing the files - sometimes it is useful to know how to do this, even though it is certainly not the easiest way to create or edit signatures!

Can anyone advise me please,
I am able to create signatures in HTML and use them for Outlook 2010, however when there are hyperlinks in my signature I lose the hyperlink, this worked perfectly with Outlook 2007, please advise how I can make it work in 2010, the last thing I want is to go backwards to 2007.

Thanks for help

Mark

Try this solution. I've been wrestling with this the last couple days and found something that works.

Okay, MS experts. I'm also having problems with this thing which used to be so trivial. Using the built-in Outlook 2010 signature editor, I put in some dead simple HTML, a link to a website (with a "Target=_blank" tag), and it all comes in a plain text, HTML exposed.
I tried the "Link" button, which is WAYYY more busy a dialog box than necessary (wish I had been in THAT focus group), and figured out how to type in a website, but not how to open a "blank" window.
