I need help adding special characters in my Outlook 2013 signature

Hi experts,
I have a Spanish last name that uses the 'N' with the squiggly line on top. I need help adding this special character in my Outlook 2013 signature.  How do I do this?

Thanks in advance,
mrotor

You can open the Character Map in your Windows computer by going to Windows Accessories.  There you can see all special characters and keystroke combinations for them (if available).

You can also have Outlook automatically replace the English spelling of your name with the correct spelling.  Go to: File | Options | Mail | AutoCorrect Options.

Type the English spelling in the Replace box.  Then use omgang's code alt+0241 to put in the correct spelling on the With side.  Then click Add.

The AutoCorrect list is shared by all Microsoft Office applications, like Word and OneNote if you use them.

Omgang,
I tried your suggestion but nothing happened.  Is there a setting I need to turn on in Outlook to get this to work.

I tried the following:
Key in Alt+0209 for capital N or Alt+0241 for lowercase.

Thanks,

Please confirm:  you hold down the Alt key while you key in 0209 or 0241.  Please try
Open Notepad
Hold down Alt key on keyboard
Enter consecutively 0 2 0 9 on keyboard should be typed into Notepad document

It works just the same in browser.  See below
