I have a signature for my emails but the option to change the font is greyed out. I have just reinstalled XP and Office 2003 and my standard signature was reinstalled using the ABF Outlook Backup program but the signature is in a different font from the way it was shown prior to the backup.

I can't access the font properties as they seem to be greyed out. Any idea's??

    Try deleting the signature.  Close Outlook.  Reopen and recreate the signature.  If theat doesn't do it try the advanced edit button.

    You probably have your message format set as plain text.

    Click Tools<Options<click on the Mail Format Tab and set your message format to Word or HTML

    That along with unticking the Word options seems to have done it, thanks...
