I have just removed Vista and Windows Live Mail from my computer, and reverted to XP with Outlook Express 6. I run a society and want a formatted signature for my e-mails. I can't achieve that in the text box so I linked to a file. I have followed all the instructions but no matter what I do the signature won't appear on my e-mails. I did manage to get something once but it talked about being truncated.
Could anyone advise me on if this is possible please?
Many thanks

My ideal signature would be the following (in Arial Rounded MTB size 10, with Stephen Sondheim in bold and with hyperlinks for web site and e-mail

Welcome to Bleeping Computer lynnechapman :thumbsup:

When you are using a signature file with a mail or news message in Outlook Express, you may receive the following error message:
Warning: Your signature file is too large. It has been truncated, please make the file smaller.

The cause of this, is your signature file is larger than the 4K size limitation.

Have a look at Personalize Your E-Mail Messages and How to Customize Signature Fonts and Colors in OE for some tips.
Chaos reigns within.
