Outlook signature not appearing when using "send to" in windows xp

If I right-click a file (.doc,.pdf,.zip,.xls, doesnt matter what file type) within windows and I drop down to "SEND TO" and select "MAIL RECIPIENT" the attachment will be automatically added to a new outlook mail message, however, my signature does not appear in the mail message.  How can I use this "send to" feature for attachments and have my signature in the mail message?  It is much faster for our users to do it this way.  Signatures work fine within outlook itself.

I already have this portion completed, but signatures still do not appear when using "send to" from windows.

From options >> mail format >> at the bottom >>  selected the same signature for new messages and replies and forwarding

so selected the same signature for
signature for new messages
signature for replies and forwarding


Please help and let me know if it works for you.  Thanks in advance

Hi musit,

When right clicking a document and choosing send to, it does not provoke the full program Outlook to start. In other words you will not have all of the Outlook feature. So, there is no way to put the signature in the email unless you change the format and do it manually.

Hi gopal_krishna,

This works if you open Word and send the email from there. You can setup Email options within Word by going to Tools ~ Options ~ Email Options. Unfortunatley this doesn't work when you right click on a document and choose Send to.

When you right click and choose send to only the SMTP part of Outlook is used. This means that the email will default to text and thus no signature.

cheers,

Actually, I ment Outlook uses MAPI to send emails when right clicking. Not SMTP.

If you configure your outlook to POP and SMTP then its SMTP. Only when you access through Microsoft Exchange then its MAPI that is used.
