If you're like many people, e-mail is a regular part of your workday. You send mail to business associates, customers, friends, and family — and you most likely end your message with a different closing depending on the recipient. For example, you can end a message to a friend with a simple "Cheers!" But for clients, you want a more formal tone and a signature that includes your full name and contact details. Over the course of a day, that can add up to a lot of repetitive typing. Why not use automatic e-mail signatures instead?

In Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, you can create and store different signatures for different circumstances. It's easy to create a signature that includes the information you want — whether it's a plain signature with just your name or an elaborate one with a photo, hyperlink, contact details, and several lines of text formatted for clarity and emphasis. Set a signature to appear by default, or add one with a quick right-click. Creating, managing, and using e-mail signatures is easy. Watch the demo to see how.
