Signature Banner In Microsoft Outloook

For those of you who use Microsoft Outlook as your email account handler instead of Outlook Express, and want to add a Telecom Plus (for example French & Saunders) signature banner, here are a few tips - note that this will apply to any signature banner that you wish to create using Microsoft Outlook 2000 - if you have a different version and this doesn't work, please let us know and we will try to help.
  1. Follow our video on this page showing how to add a signature banner in Outlook Express to the stage where you have created the .html folder and given it a name. (let's call it 'testsignature' for the purposes of these tips)
  2. Open the new 'testsignature' file (by double clicking) in your Explorer browser and position your mouse in the Url box (http:// etc), press Ctrl-A, then Ctrl-C (hold down the Ctrl key then tap A, release then same again and tap C)
  3. Now open your Microsoft Outlook and Click Tools
  4. Click Options
  5. Click Mail Format
  6. From the drop down box, select 'send in message format' HTML
  7. Click Signature Picker
  8. Click New
  9. Enter a name for your signature (we're calling it 'testsignature' but you choose a more appropriate name)
  10. Click in the box for 'use this file as template'
  11. position your cursor in the box (left click in the box)
  12. Press Ctrl-V
  13. Click Next
  14. You should now see your banner in the screen. If it ok, Click 'Finish'
  15. Click OK
  16. Check that the name (testsignature) appears in the signature box. If so,
  17. Click Apply
  18. Click OK

Open your Outlook email and click 'new' to start a new message. Your signature should appear on the message.
