Outlook 2010 - Keyboard shortcut to signature



I have several signatures available when creating an email. Is there a way for me to create a keyboard short-cut to a particular signature and insert it at the bottom of a new email?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is a feature (Autohotkey ) in outlook 2010. Butthere are freewares for this,

Take a look here for the solution:

There are ALT+# keyboard shortcuts assigned to everything in the Quick Access toolbar. If you open up a new email, click on the little down arrow near the top-left corner and choose Customize.

Then, select "Message Tab" under the section "Choose Commands From", scroll down to Signature and then add and save.

In order to find out the keyboard short cut assigned to the icon, with that new mail message open, tap the ALT key and little graphics will indicate which key to press with the ALT key.
