HTML Signature in 2017 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Outlook dev team,

    I'd love to know how to add an e-mail signature in the latest Outlook. I'd love to get the solution for an average user so my employees would know how to do it. 

    I've searched ton on this topic and I just can't understand how is it possible that in 2017 such company as Microsoft makes adding a simple signature such a pain in the #@$. How does it come that clients like AirMail, Thunderbird, emClient make it so easy while Your UX seems like there's noone who responds for UX in Microsoft at all?

    Where's the option to just paste HTML? Or to import .html file? Does it have to be so complicated?

  • Hi DoubleuPaul,

    from the description of the thread, it looks like your issue is related with Outlook user interface.

    but this forum only handles the issues regarding Outlook object model.

    so for better response and better solution, I move this thread to Outlook it pro discussions forum.

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Regards

  • Hi Paul,

    Generally, to create a signature and choose when Outlook adds a signature to your messages, we can refer to the instructions in the following article:

    Create and add a signature to messages

    The signatures in Microsoft Outlook are located in a folder named Signature. If by paste HTML, you meant to import HTML signatures into Microsoft Outlook, please open this folder, and you can copy/cut or paste signatures easily.

    To find the signatures folder, please open the Windows Explorer, and enter the %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures in the address box at the top, and then press the Enter key:

    Hope this can be helpful.

    Best regards,
    Yuki Sun
