Create Multiple Signatures In Outlook 2010

Most users only use a single signature when sending emails but there are few who work at two or more places and need to use different signatures. Users can create multiple signatures in Outlook 2010 and quickly add them on different emails in just 2 clicks. For e.g, a person using Outlook 2010 on a laptop will use a different signature at home than the one he uses while at work.

Launch Outlook 2010, go to File menu and click Options.

    Thanks for this tip. I’ve seen the signature button there many times but I thought it was just a shortcut to edit your signature.

    In previous versions of Outlook, I could use the “signatures” feature to paste in boilerplate text, such as answers to frequently asked questions, instructions for things that keep coming up complete with complex formatting, links to websites and public folders, and even long names and job titles that I’d otherwise have to keep entering by hand.  In Outlook 2010, though, clicking on a signature will immediately erase and replace any previous signature that I put in.

    Is there a way to turn off that new behavior, or do I have to start learning how to set up macros or something?

      I have this same issue. Have you found a solution yet?

    How does this allow you to post multiple signatures? I can still see only one inserted.
