How can I have outlook ask me which signature file to use?

I have three different signature files I would like to use depending on the person I send emails to. Is there a way in outlook to have outlook ask me which signature to use each time I open a new email to send out to a client?

In Outlook 2003 - just go --> Insert -> Signature -> Name

It replaces whatever is already there.

In outlook 2007, just press the signature menu item and choose the appropriate signature

rthanks for the quick reply. Actually, this is my problem.

In Outlook 2003 - just go --> Insert -> Signature -> Name


The above menu option is non existent.

Which part?  The name part?? Or the whole Insert-> Signature part?

Have you set up your separate signatures yet??

Thanks Aherps, I found out the problem. If i uncheck the option Use Microsoft word 2003 to edit my email message, it displays the signature add menu option. However I would like to use word 2003 to edit my email messages. Is it possible to do both at the same time?

Hopefully that might point you in the right direction.

Thank you for your comments. I can't believe microsoft can be this lame. If I turn off WORD as the mail editor I have the signature option to select. I turn it back on and the option is gone. Extremely stupid if you ask me. Because we all know that people love using email without using an editor that is going to check my spelling and grammar errors. Yeah, who cares about spelling errors, it's not like we use email to communicate with partners and clients. Anyhoo, this is what I did.

I created a Macro that would just output all the text for my signature. I then added it to a custom toolbar and also made a hotkey to just insert it. It's working beautifully. I would just expect a product you pay good money for to have this ability built in.

Thanks for your help.
