Creating a Signature

A signature is a fixed block of text you would like to add to the bottom of outgoing messages.  An example:

Janey Smith
Web Designer
*******************************
ABC Web Developing Company
800-555-1212

Janey could have this sent at the end of every message she creates.  If you want to add an address block to your messages, do the following:

  1. Click Options on the right side of the Hotmail window.

  2. Click the word signature.

  3. Click in the large text box and type the information you would like to include as your signature.

  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click OK.

  5. The signature will automatically be added to all outgoing messages.  You will not see the signature when composing a message but the recipient will see it when the message is viewed.

  6. You can update your signature at any time by using this same set of steps.
