Outlook 2003 signature does not change with account change

Up until yesterday, we were able to open a new email and when we change the send from account it would also change the signature for that person.  Now, when we compose a new email and change the from account, it keeps the default user's signature.

Nothing has been added software wise for over week and this just started yesterday.

Try resetting the signature for that account  in account options.  Then try again.

That was the first think I had done.  I even removed signatures from the other accounts, restarted Outllook and the default account signature still came up.  I added the signatures back and still the same problem.

This might help that I found this out on the web, are you using Word as your default editor in Outlook?

Lunda, I want to thank you for your help.  But it appears that when we upgraded all by Outlook to 2007, it locked out using Word as our default editor, which is somehow also tied to the signatures.  It also did not provide you with the option to insert symbols, such as the copyright or trademark, which my client uses quite a bit.  I have taken them back to Office 2003 with he Microsoft conversion utility, which allows the reading of Office 2007files.

I'd like to give you the points anyway, since you did steer me in the right direction.

For help sake, you can create signatures in Word 2007 and use the any and all emblems you would like.  Below is the instructions here for you for that.  Took us a while as well to get used to all the "ribbons" in Office 2007.  But there was no real relief for the signature untill I tried this.

Simply go to the area in Mail Format for Signatures, select create new signature, give it a name.  

Open Word, create the signature in word exactly how you would like it to appear then Copy ALL of the text and icons and photos (Ctrl A) then (Ctrl C)

Go back to Outlook and paste it in the text area.  (Ctrl V)

I've created many signatures like this.  This is nice because you can enlarge or reduce your items to fit the way you want to in the Word Docx.

You can also create stationary to use in Outlook in word 2007.  Let me know if you want that also.
