  1. This is probably the best help I’ve found on this issue so far. However, the issue still is there when you open the email from a phone. The icons/photos on the signature are not where they should be.

  2. It is a pity, that now I can not express – I hurry up on job. I will return – I will necessarily express the opinion.

  3. You need to be a part of a contest for one of the most useful sites on the internet. I will highly recommend this web site!

  4. The one thing I can’t find is how to put a matrix text op top of a picture in Signatures. This does not work. When I paste my Word version in Signatures the Image in the background disappeares and only the text matrix (with hyperlinks and inserted icons) remaines. ??

  5. Very well explained. I tried the instructions of many websites but could not properly do the placing of my signature in the outlook. But with your clear and simple instructions I was able to do it within a minute. Great Work!!

  6. Thank you so much! This is the most helpful article on Outlook email signatures that I’ve found. The part I most needed was “Note: You will not see the picture in the signature editor” – how did all of the other articles miss that key fact??? (And I’ve been looking at a LOT of them, trust me.)
    Thank you thank you thank you. ??
