Creating and Using Multiple Signatures

Entourage has one default signature for new messages and offers a different default signature for replies and forwards. You may also create as many other signature files as desired to be chosen when composing a new message. Keep in mind the following when creating a signature:

  • You can create new signatures or edit existing ones.
  • Be sure to give each signature an appropriate name so you can select it later.
  • When editing a signature, you can copy and paste an existing signature or enter a new one from scratch.
  • Once you've entered your signature(s), you can mark some to be "random" and to be chosen randomly later on.

Note: If you set a default signature, you can still select other signatures when drafting mail messages. In the new message window, select the Signature button.
