Hotkey to insert your signature?

Is there a hotkey or a way to setup a hotkey to insert your default signature?  I already have my Outlook setup to insert my signature on new emails.  I don't want my signature on all replies or forwards, just sometimes.

I seem to remember this was available in older versions of Outlook but haven't been able to find anything for Outlook 2003.

Thanks,
Eric

It doesn't appear that Outlook 2003 has this functionality built-in any longer, but between these two articles you can make your own shortcut/hotkey to do this.  Essentially, you add a custom item to the 'standard' menu for the Insert > Signature action, then assign that to a quickkey.  Somewhat confusing, in my opinion, but it works...

Hope that's helpful!

Have you tried using a "blank" signature as your default?

(Basically, have a few blank spaces or returns as your default signature, then have other signatures you may want as additional signatures.)

If you use this, then you should be able to right click on your "blank" signature, and then select your additional signatures whenever you please.

Hope this helps!

I always prefer hotkeys/shortcuts and am disappointed Microsoft still seems to use them sparingly in Outlook 2003.

However, for something like this, isn't it almost easier to simply use the Alt-I, S  keys to pull up your signature?  I know it's two keys in succession and then the enter key to select the sig, but the bonus is this combo will also work if you're using an Outlook client on a different machine.
