Hi Experts,

  I need to put two hyperlinks into my Outlook (2000 SP3) signiture.  one would be my name with a hyperlink to my email address, and the other would be my company's name with a hyperlink to its website's address.  I was able to do it, but it just shows the hyper link instead of just showing the text and hiding the hyperlink.

i.e.: MyCompany <http://www.mycompany.com/>

Thanks,
axnst2

Hi axnst2,

You need to switch the signature editor to Word.  To do this, edit your signature with "Advanced Edit" in the property page of Outlook Signature tab.

Hi axnst2,

I'm assuming that you are sending messages in HTML format.  If so, then the best solution is to create the signature using Notepad or an HTML editor that doesn't insert a ton of junk in the resulting file.  For the link to show up the way you want it to it has to be in this format:

    <a href="http://www.mycompany.com">My Company</a>



Cheers!

Greetings, axnst2 !

To know if you are sending emails in HTML format, in Outlook, go to Tools > Options, Mail Format. Select HTML from the drop down menu if it is not already selected. Click OK. Close Outlook. Test.

Best wishes!
