Several readers suggested a better way to handle signatures in Outlook
). Following the instructions in the item, create all the signatures you
want to use (for example, a formal sign-off with your title or a casual
one with a nickname) and select the one you most often use as your
default. Then, after completing an e-mail, just right-click on the
default signature that appears automatically; it will produce a box
containing all your options—like the one at right.
Click on the one
you want and it will replace the default for that message .

Because of the volume of mail, we
regret we cannot individually answer submitted
questions. However, if a reader’s question has
broad interest, we will answer it in a forthcoming
Technology Q&A column.
On occasion you
may find you cannot implement a function I
describe in this column. More often than not it’s
because not all functions work in every operating
system or application. I try to test everything in
the 2000 and XP editions of Windows and Office.
It’s virtually impossible to test them in all
editions and it’s equally difficult to find out
which editions are incompatible with a function. I
apologize for the inconvenience.
