11. Signatures

Many people like to have a standard closing phrase, or details of their job title, address, contact details, and so on in their messages. A signature allows you to do this without having to type the information in each time.

You can create your own signature, with a choice of fonts and colours, and
            specify whether OWA should apply it automatically to all new messages
Figure 30. Create/Modify Signature

To set up an automatic signature in OWA choose Options (at the top right of the screen) and then click Messaging (on the left-hand side). You will see a screen which looks like Figure 30, Create/Modify Signature, where you can enter your signature and choose whether OWA should apply it by default to all new messages.

If you choose to Automatically include my signature on outgoing messages, every time you compose a new message you will see your signature text at the bottom (you can then change or delete it for that message). Alternatively you can add the signature to messages manually by clicking the Insert Signature button at the top of any message:

Once you are happy with your signature, click Save at the top of the screen to confirm your changes.
