Create an Email Signature in Outlook Online

Instructions for the new Outlook on the web:

  1. Sign in to Outlook on the web.

  2. Go to Settings > View all Outlook settings > Compose and reply.

  3. Under Email signature, type your signature and use the available formatting options to change its appearance.

    Note: You can have only one signature per account.
    • If you want your signature to appear at the bottom of all new email messages that you compose, select the Automatically include my signature on new messages I compose check box.

    • If you want your signature to appear on messages that you forward or reply to, select the Automatically include my signature on messages I forward or reply to check box.

    • If you don’t select these options, you can manually add your signature to a selected message. For details, see Manually add your signature to a new message below.

  4. Select Save when you're done.

    Note: You can always return to the Compose and reply page and select or clear the check box for automatically including your signature.

  1. Go to your mailbox and choose New message.

  2. Type your message, and then choose Insert signature at the bottom of the compose pane.

  3. When your email message is ready, choose Send.
