How To Add An E-Mail Signature Using Outlook

One of our most commonly received questions relates to adding an e-mail signature to outgoing e-mails. Offering the ideal way to personalise your e-mails along with promote key information such as your website URL, your logo, your business address and your Social Media channels and many more, the addition of an e-mail signature can be hugely beneficial.

The good news is that despite the regular updates to Microsoft Outlook, the process is a quick and simple one. Even better, once you have put this in place, you won’t need to do it again!

Adding a Basic Signature

In Outlook, you can create one or more personalised signatures for your email messages. Your signature can include text, images, your electronic business card, a logo, or even an image of your handwritten signature. You can set up Outlook so that signatures are automatically added to all outgoing messages or create your signature and add it to messages on a case-by-case basis.

To add your very own signature to your e-mails, please follow the helpful guides from Microsoft which take you through the process step-by-step.
