Make changes in signatures

The downloaded signatures do not have your name and other data so you have to change that.

Start Outlook and go to ”File” in the menu, then click ”Options”.

In the ”Outlook Options” menu choose ”Mail” followed by ”Signatures...”.

In the "Signatures and Stationary" window four new signatures are hosted (two text and two graphical) to modify (You might find also signatures you created before).

Adjust the signatures (write proper address, phone etc.), save after each signature you changed (from template to next template)

There are links with your e-mail address in the signature (the blue text). These have to be replaced both as text and as links. Do like this:

  • First change the text so your e-mail address is right.
  • Mark the whole e-mail address.
  • Click on the small globe icon with a chain (link) to the right.
  •  "Text to display" should contain your e-mail address.
  • "E-mail address" should have following text: mailto: your e-mail address.
  • Click OK to save.

To get space after the KTH logotype and your name (in the graphical signatures), add a row break between those.

You can also choose what signature should be used as default writing new emails along with replies and forwarded e-mails.

Click OK to save.
