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) ?

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

I support syedyounus. However, if you still have problem, create HTML signature.

The reply by syedyounus is the very same as my post with respect to the signature settings.

THanks all.. it finally took! THere must have been a bug in the first release as after I ran patch updates, it worked, and I didnt do anything!
