What program are you using -- Outlook 97, Outlook 98, Outlook 2000, Outlook Express? Note that if you're sending messages in plain text format, you have no font control.

Fonts are available when you're sending in HTML format. You can change the format on the Tools | Options | Send settings page.

To add an HTML signature, create the HTML file first in an HTML editor. Then add it as a signature file in Tools | Options | Signature.

Or in an Outlook Express HTML message, create the signature, then choose File | Save As | Stationery. You can then start a message with Message | New Message Using  and pick your stationery.

You can create a signature to look however you choose, by creating it at the following location:

Tools >>> Optionss >>> Mail Format tab >>> click signature button.  then you follow the wizard to create the new signature.  You will have buttons to change fonts, etc.

Hope it works for you.
