Signatures For Email - on Steroids

Outlook allows up to 2 active signatures for each email account on your system depending on if it's a NEW email or a REPLY email. For instance, I have 7 active email accounts (I'm not neurotic, this is normal!) and I have about 7 signatures set up, but can only use 2 per account.

Well, all that changes with Outlook 2007. Not only can you still have multiple signatures, but you can use them on an "as needed" basis.

First Tip: set up your e mail signatures.
Tools > Options> Mail Format tab > Signatures.
Click New, choose which account to apply it to, and start typing

Second Tip: click New Mail Message
Notice on the message ribbon there is a "Signature" button.
Click it and choose the signature you want to use.

Steroids Tip: If you don't need a formal e mail signature but it is set to automatically show up, just right-click the signature in the email body. Your list of signatures appears on the shortcut list. Just click a different signature to use. This way you don't have to click the "Signature" button on the Message ribbon.
