OUtlook 2007 multiple signatures

I am using 2 signatures for 2 separate email accounts in outlook 2007.  I have migrated to a new laptop and am setting up outlook again, and set up the signatures again. The problem is that outlook is only using the default signature (lets call it accout 1/signature 1) when sending mail. When I select 'account 2' to sent by, the signature is BLANK and not using 'signature 2'.  It looks like I have set both computers up the same way... so confused.  I must be missing something here...  Help please...

I am not sure (partly because I only use a common signature everywhere, if I use one at all).

(a) In Outlook -> Tools -> Options -> Mail Format -> Signatures, there are 3 settings for signatures. Did you set them all?
(b) Given you have a different laptop, and therefore different install, did you full patch Office (service packs and updates) ?

Outlook -> Tools -> Options -> Mail Format -> Signatures

Add 2 new signatures say text1 & text2

Then select ( Email account ) -- in ( New messages ) & ( Replies / forwards ) select the signature which you had created from the drop down.

In our case you will see text1 & text2 from the dropdown for the Email Account - you can associate to 2 different accounts
