Have a customer that has a cloud terminal server with Exchange hosted at a 3rd party.  2 of the users have noticed that intermittently when they reply to emails, they get squares with question marks in them appearing in different lines of their signatures.  The body of the emails look fine.  Have never seen this before. Need help.

The squares are a font issue.  Have them use a graphic or a standard font to avoid the issue.

Lee W - They're using Calibri which is a standard font.

Hi user....

It seems you need to make sure the option "Show picture placeholders" is not selected under both the options in:

1) when we composing a message
2) when we read a message

Henry Dawson - Show Picture Placeholders is not selected.  Typically, when that is selected, your logo would be replaced by a rectangle. What's happening here is different.  In the signature, you will see little squares after each line of text:

******************************************਍ഀ

Fax: 800-565-1212਍ഀ
Email: jdoe@widgets.com਍ഀ ਍ഀ Free Analysis: 77734਍ഀ ਍ഀ ਍ഀ

Within the actual email, the boxes actually have little questions marks within them.  Below the last line of text, the actual signature has a QR code which was auto-removed when everything happens to the signature. The "Free Analysis" line actually sits below the Email line in the original signature, but it gets pushed up to the line above it when everything else happens to the signature.  I don't know if this is an issue with "text only" email services adjusting the original html signature or something else.  I just know it wasn't happening before in Office 2010 with the same signatures.

Hi user...

Very sorry for late response.....You just reset all that & start from the beginning....

Best method is--  Open an email in 2010 and copy the signature to the clipboard and then paste it into the Outlook Signature screen.
 You get to this screen by clicking on File --> Options --> Mail --> Signatures.
Create a new signature and then paste your former signature into the editor area below.
 Be certain to set the default signature on the upper right before you click OK.

Thanks
Henry
