Every email message is accompanied by a well designed signature. If you use Outlook both for personal as well as work purposes, you may want to use different signatures when corresponding with your contacts. Sometimes, you may even want to use different signatures for different purposes. For instance, you may want a different signature for an email that you composed, as opposed to a message that you reply to or forward to others. Microsoft Outlook 2010 offers the flexibility to add a number of email signature options and in this tutorial I’ll show you how to add signatures to different e-mail messages.
You can customize the email signature you created by adding a picture, logo, messages, personalized business card, or even social media icons. And you can setup the signature to display automatically or you can choose to manually add them.
