Import Signatures into Outlook 2011

Posted on 2012-08-22

I have a customer who has moved from a Windows 7 laptop with Outlook 2010 to a MAC Book Pro (Lion) with Outlook 2011

The user has multiple signatures in Outlook 2010, some reasonably plain but most with graphics/icons and links etc to face book, twitter and other things.

I have exported all the data to an accessible server location for the user to access them.  I took all the Signatures from the following folder location in Windows 7...

How can I easily import these same signatures into the MAC ready for use in Outlook 2011.

I would like very simple instructions to give to the end user to carry out this action as currently I have limited access to his machine as he is in another country.

    There isn't an import function. And copying the signatures folder to the Outlook preferences on Mac doesn't work.

    But you can do this:
    1. Copy the .htm or .rtf files to the Mac (what you prefer)
    2. Open it.
    3. Select it all and copy it.
    4. Open Outlook for Mac.
    5. Click on Outlook (in the bar) ==> Preferences ==> Signatures
    6. For every Signature you need to click on the "+" and give it a name.
    7. Paste the selected images + text you copied in step 4.

    This is unfortunatly the only way to "import" your signatures.

    As I suspected but thanks for the answer, it worked well.
