I can't seem to understand why when for example I have a word document and when i choose the "Send to" mail recipient option in my case "by attachment" it deosn't show my signature, that appears when i create a new mail in Outlook (verison 2003)

Is there a way around this?

    Greetings, teknite !

    Select Insert > Signature.  Outlook does not auto add a signature when using "Send To".

    To add a signature when sending Word documents using the Email command in Word (File | Send to | Mail recipient), create an AutoText entry for each signature. You can then insert them with the Insert | AutoText command.

    When using the Outlook editor, you need to use the Insert | Signature menu to change signatures.

    Best wishes!
