Go to Tools -> Options
Click on the Mail Format Tab
Click on the Signatures button

From there you can add signatures. At the top right is a drop down for "E-mail Account" and underneath are two drop downs for setting the default signatures.

it works when i have two email address configured, but i have only one exchange email address + one alias.


****@microsoft.com (primary email address)
****@windows.com (Alias of primary email address)

so technically there is only one email address.

is it possible to setup two different signatures for primary and alias and pick them up automatically????

Sorry, I missed the same account, but with an alias part of the question. Out of the box, I don't believe there is.

I did find a program called TextExpander (http://www.butterscotch.com/tutorial/managing-multiple-email-signatures-with-textexpander) that isn't automatic, but could simplify the process. I wasn't able to watch the video, so I'm just going based on the text.

There is also Live Signatures (http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/live_signatures/) which again won't be automatic, but may make things quicker for you.

If you don't get a better solution here, you could try posting a question to one of the programming forums, looking for help with building an Outlook add-in / using VBA that would handle the functionality. I'm guessing it could be relatively easily built, I just don't know how to do it.
