Setting a signature line for your SI e-mail – Microsoft Outlook edition

To set up your SI signature in Microsoft Outlook, do the following:

outlooksignature01
Click on File and select Options.

outlooksignature02
From the left side, select Mail.

Then, on the right side, select Signatures.

Make sure you're on the E-mail Signature tab. And, if you're creating a new signature (as opposed to editing an existing one), click New, give a name for the signature you're creating, and then click OK.

Once your signature is created (or if you're simply editing a previously existing signature), you can just click into the Edit signature large text box and start editing.

The Communications Office is asking us to standardize on one that looks like this:
