signature attachment

Hi

I created outlook signature and when I send email, the recipient received
email as my company logo attachment. I tried to save the logo on the web site
with and turn off the options- mail format -
internet format –html options (when an HTML message contains pictures located
on the Internet, send a copy of the pictures instead of the reference to
their location) It works and received email without logo attachment. Now the
problem is we have 500+ users in our company and it is kind of impossible to
turn off the html options on each user. Is there any other ways to work
around to receive messages without attachment and doesn’t have to touch
anything to that html options? we use outlook 2003

Many thanks,
pwint

Hi All,

I wish to wirte an applicaiton which picks up emails from Outlook inbox and
then checks if the email is digitally signed. Then verifies the digital
signature and if found valid does some task.

I am trying to use the Microsoft Outlook 12.0 Object Library. But I don't
find any way to access the digital signature attached to the mail. The
Microsoft Office 12 Object Library has classes like SignatureInfo etc. But
I'm not aware of how to use these to read the digital signature attached to
the outlook email.

How do I prevent my graphic signature from becoming an attachment?

I have a wonderful signature with graphics and text, however, when I send it
out, people get the the signature fine, but also get the graphic that is in
my signature attached to their e-mail.

How do I prevent this??

Hello folks,

I have an Outlook add-in Developed in Visual Studio 2008, written in VB.NET
for Outlook 2003 and 2007. A small part of its functionality is to post
emails from Outlook to a webform which currently works well in both versions.
We've however come across an issue with the attachments.

Currently, when the click the custom button to post the email. I save all
the attachments to a file and after the message is sent, I attempt the send
the attachments also. The issue is, signatures with images are being stored
as attachments also. Is there anyway to distinguish between the two types of
attachments?

Regards,

I have searched around and I know this is not the general "How do you attach
a sig" question so I figured I would give it a shot here.

1) OPTIONS>MAIL FORMAT I have the compose message format in HTML
2) Under the same menu I have the box checked "Use Microsoft Office Word
2003 to edit e-mail messages.

3) I am able to create a new sig and save it (I am also able to advance edit
under word)

4) I selected the sig to be applied to NEW and REPLIES/FORWARDS.

5) It is a basic TEXT only sig with no pics or additional Fancy attachment.

6) The sig does not attach to any email??

7) If I go to the mail format menu again and change "Compose in this message
format" from HTML to RICH TEXT my sig will magically appear this time.

8) The reason why I like my email format in HTML is because of the way
attachments appear on outgoing emails.

Questions: Why does the signature only appear when the mail format is in
RICH TEXT and not in HTML?

Side note: My laptop is setup with the exact same HTML settings and my sig
appears. THe problem I am having is at my office desktop. The other funny
thing is that my exchange server sig shows in the list but nothing pulls up
for it.

Thanks for anyones help n advance.

My users all have their own custom signatures attaching to their outgoing
e-mail through Outlook. How can I configure Exchange 2003 to add another
signature to the bottom of all messages sent out from the domain?

Any advice is much appreciated.

Hi

Can anyone tell me, if a Public Folder can send/recieve mails with a digital signature attached.

Or put in another way - can a Public Folder handle an exchange of certificates - like a normal Outlook account ??

Best regards

Is there any way I can stop the signature I set up to not go on my forwarded
messages or my replys? The option is to set it for both or neither. I
would like to set it for my "forwarded messages", but not my "reply ones".
The string of messages can get exceptionally long with the signature block
added.

Thanks.

I'm having an issue with a picture appearing within an email signature I have
created for the company I work for. I decided to post the picture on a web
site and then link the signature to it. Everything works the way I would
expect it to, except when I receive a reply from a person that I had
previously sent an email to with my signature attached, the reply includes my
signature as well as their signature. However, my signature displays the
image, while theirs shows the Red X space holder. Digging into the source
code of the email reveals the link in their signature is instead
src="outbind://20/http://www.domain.com/email_picture.gif". I have read that
if you do not place the http:// before the website, you will get this
behavior, but that is not the case with my signature. And what's even more
odd, is when I reply once again to the person and then receive yet another
reply within the same email string, the source code changes the previous
outbind://20/http:// back to the correct
src="http://www.domain.com/email_picture.gif" and then the most recent
signature shows up as
src="outbind://20/http://www.domain.com/email_picture.gif". I have moved all
users to edit their emails in Outlook (as opposed to Word). I can find very
little info on this and would at least like to find an explanation if there
are limitations or a fix would be even better.

Thanks

I placed a hyperlink to my email in the signature attached to outgoing
messages. It was in the form of name@company.com. For some reason the
hyperlink changed and now reads "Hyperlink mail to: name@name>@company.com
name@name>@company.com name@company.com". This showed up on several
outgoing messages and then it reverted to it's original format however, when
you point at it the pop up says "mail to: name@name>@company.com.

I am running Windows XP Pro with SP2 and Office 2003 with SP2. My outlook
..pst file is 3GB +. Has Outlook gone haywire or has my email been hijacked or
redirected? How can I fix this.

After upgrading to a new computer I have lost my ability to have my signature
attached to reply emails. The signature attaches to new emails without
problem.

Also, I have done everything I know correctly: Tools, OPtions, Mail Format

Please help!!!

I right click on files and choose send to>mail recipient? It does not
add my signature, only some warning about sercurity and such? Is there
also a way to remove this warning? Thanks.

I receive the following message when I attempt to open an email with a
digital signature attached.

"Cannot open this item. Your Digital ID name can not be found by the
underlying security system."

The email server is Exchange Server 2003 Enterprise edition and I am using
Outlook 2003 for the client.

I've been using Outlook 2003 at work for 2 years now, and have always had a
black email signature attach to all emails.

Today, I just turned on the email editor so it's more like Word with spell
check, formatting, etc.

After I turned this on, my signature colour changed from black to blue. If
I go into the email options, it shows my signature as black still. How can I
get the signature back to black in the email???

Thanks!

I have an email account with a signature attached to all sent emails.
However, when I scan a document to email, the signature does not attach. If I
try to manually attach all it will add is my name line.
Any help appreciated.
Using Win XP
Office 2003
Outlook email.

Thank you

When I send messages to others with my signature attached, it double spaces
the signature. Does anyone know how to correct this?

Even though I can create multiple signatures for new/reply/forwarded emails,
the option is one for new &/or one for replies/forwards or none. However, if
I create a business signature, a business reply signature, a friends/family
signature, I either have to accept the same for all similar functions (i.e.
-- replies, whether business or family must be the same signature). What
would be nice is to have the ability to do the following:

In the email contact, specify what signature I'd like to use for new,
replies/forwards, &/or all, etc.
*For example, my sister sends me an email. My current setting in the
Signatures setup is to reply w/ "First & Last Name". However, my sister does
not need my last name. Sure it's simple enough to scroll down and erase my
last name after completing my email, but that negates the pupose of the
automation. OR, I could opt for "no signature" in the Signature setup and
insert it from the Insert drop down menu, which is unnecessary movement. OR,
I could use the Insert drop down menu to insert the signature for my family
and then erase the automatic "First & Last Name" signature I originally set
up in the Signatures setup menu - one more time, why automate if I have
partially negate.

**My suggestion is to provide a place in the Outlook contact information
section for me to assign specific signatures for individual contact members.
Using my sister example again. In my sister's information contact card, I
should be able to assign a new message signature and a reply/forward message
signature for her card. Similar for every contact in my address book.
However, if I choose NOT to assign a signature for certain contacts, the
signature I assigned in the setup menu under Options would be applied to
emails as stipulated for new, reply, forward, etc.

***If this could not be added to the Contact info card, then I'd suggest
being able to create a rule for this scenario. Rule starts: 1) sister name is
in the From section of a received email - check that condition, 2) reply with
specified signature - thus allowing me to select which signature I'd like to
apply to replies/forwards to my sister. Should be simple to set up for each
contact I'd like to apply specific signatures to their emails.

****Last, if the above are NOT possible, then create a dedicated keystroke
for signatures. Therefore, I'd select "None" for signatures to be applied to
new or reply/forward emails. Once an email had been completed, I'd bring up
the signature options and click to insert which signature was appropriate.

This would be a great feature to have for the signatures portion, as I love
having as much automation as possible or simplified keystroking -- less mouse
movement. Typing and then having to move to the mouse and then back to the
keyboard is not efficient.

Let me know what you think of my suggestion(s) OR if I am unaware of an
automation already in place.

Thanks

preferred reply to:

First things first.. Exchange 03, Office 03 (Word as Editor).. I have user
that somehow got ALL CAPS turned on when ever she sent out and email.. In
which caused issues for anyone responding back as well.. Now I have it to the
point where all caps only automatically turns on when they have a auto
signature attached to the new message.. If there is no auto sig then the
message works like normal and ALL CAPS is not enabled.. I have totally
removed all signatures and recreated them with no luck.. I have done a detect
and repair with office with no luck.. Is there some type of template file
that is used when you attach a signature?? I have a small video that shows
this in action which is about 1.3emegs if anyone would like me to send it to
them.. It's very very strange and I can't figure it out.. Hope someone can
help..

Thanks,
Jason

I just converted from 2000 to Outlook 2003.

My automatic signature insertion will not work when I am forwarding a link

BTW: It does work when sending, replaying, or forwarding emails from outlook.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Can anyone help.

In word 2007 i've created a newsletter. At end of newsletter i've inserted a
signature image. Am using this newsletter to email, via outlook 2007, to
about 50 clients. Here's the problem. When clients receive the email they
also receive the signature image as an attachment. How can i prevent this
from happening?

From Word, I cut and paste the newsletter into an outlook 2007 email which
i'm creating as html. Again, is there someway to send the email without the
recipient receiving the signature attachment?
