I created an HTML page that has a link as such:
<A HREF="mailto:jdoe@company.com?subject=Test&body=This is a test">Link</A>

When I click on the link in Outlook, it does not add my Outlook signature.  What settings can I turn on in Outlook that will fix this?  (any version of Outlook)

Hi, ttitus.

The body parameter is the problem.  If you remove it, then the signature will be there.  Apparently Outlook creates the message with the signature and that parameter overwrites the body erasing the signature.  I'm not aware of any solutions for this since strictly speaking it's not an Outlook problem.  It's a function of how the link works.

Sadly, I agree with you that there's no solution to this due to Microsoft's implementation.
