Hyperlink in Outlook signature

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/>

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>

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.

How do I know if I'm sending the emails in HTML format or not?

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!
