setting up Outlook header and trailer template

I'm using both Outlook 2003 & 2010.  I would like all emails
sent out (new emails or replies or forwarded emails)  by me
to automatically have the following header & trailer in the
mail content.  Pls advise how to go about setting this up
in Outlook 2003 & 2010?

I should be able to remove them while editing the email
should there be personal emails that I need to sent out.

Would the above instructions work & take effect for
Outlook Webmail as well?  If not, what's the steps
to do this for webmail ?

Hi Alexious

I've followed the link provided for Outlook 2003 but it did not
work ie did not display the header/footer whenever I create
new emails.  I've relaunched Outlook but this did not help.

Refer to attached screen on what I've set for Header & Footer

& the "Page Setup" for "Memo Style" under "Print" is greyed out:
refer to attachment 2

For "Table Style", it's not greyed out but after doing the Page Setup,
it simply did not display header/footer

What's needed is actually the signature
Tools ==> Options ==> Mail Format tab ==> Signature button (at the bottom)
& this works for both Outlook 2003, 2010.

However, this does not take effect on my
browser-based Outlook webmail.  Any idea?

Just noticed that the signatures (ie headers & footers)
appear for new emails created but not when I'm
forwarding or replying to existing emails, why is that?

There's a separate setting for replies and forwards:

in 2010:

You can find the different versions of your signature here:  %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Signatures

As for webmail (OWA) you can set a basic text based signature manually for each user

hi Rob, do you mean set a text file using Notepad/MSWord & each time I
creates a new mail in webmail, just copy & paste it over?

RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
I was referring to setting it under settings.  It will only allow basic text formatting for OWA.
