How to make an Outlook signature using the Bells & Whistles Outlook add-in
Microsoft Outlook is delivered with its own email signature options, but these options don't offer you the freedom of the signature feature of the Bells & Whistles add-in for Outlook. Using the Bells & Whistles add-in, on top of what you can achieve with the Outlook signature function, you can: define and automatically insert a signature only for certain Outlook Contacts or email addresses, so you can easily use several Outlook email signatures on the same Outlook profile;
compose the Outlook email signature using a fully fledged HTML editor that allows you to insert images, hyperlinks on images or other objects in the Outlook email signature.
You can even paste HTML code into the editor, customizing the Outlook signature as much as you like.
To enable the Outlook Signature feature, go to the Bells & Whistles Outlook toolbar, then open the Bells & Whistles Options from the Reply Options menu section, enable the option "Insert signature" and click on the Edit button to compose the Outlook signature:
The signature editor is the same as the editor used for text templates. All signatures will be saved into the Signatures category of the Text Templates. This category is only accessible by using the Edit button from under the "Insert signature" checkbox: you can't edit signatures by using the regular text templates editor.
The signature editor is very straight forward, as it ressembles the rich text editor interface of Microsoft Word or Outlook.
