Outlook for Mac 2011 - Signature Issues

gday gents,

Simple issue: Outlook 2011 for Mac. When you create a new email and change the 'from' field - the signature does not get updated automatically to match the email you are sending.

I have researched quite a bit online and everyone seems to say that Microsoft have removed the feature entirely (which is extremely odd). My question is more has anyone had a play with this and found a work around or something similar.

We have thought to append the email signature at the exchange server but these guys want the signature displayed at their end so they know which account they are working out of.

Any thoughts ?

Click on the account that you're sending from, then click new mail? That way it sends from the correct account without changing the 'from' field?

IE: if i click support@xyz.com but i want it from skythra@xyz.com i have to change the from field. But if i click skythra@xyz before clicking "compose" then it'll work.


I don't have a process change solution for replies though. Sorry.

I understand what you are saying, just click on the different account on the left prior to creating a new email.

This is the most basic way I can think to make this work however customer not overly impressed with that solution.

Took some thinking but this is what I Have come up with as a solution...
Looking at probably running Virtualbox in Seamless mode just for Microsoft Office 2010 but then you get file saving issues (fixed by dropbox) and setting up printers etc (network printers should be easy).

That or we just move them entirely to RDP sessions on a hosted terminal server. But Mac lovers dont take kindly to those type of suggestions lol

FWIW this functionality exists & works perfectly in Mozilla Thunderbird (which is available for Mac), but I suspect changing email client might not be an option...?

Hey herbal- I was considering doing sigs server side however the guys want to actually see it - It's one of those issues that could have been resolved with Microsoft just adding the feature.
Probably going to have to seamless outlook 2010

Thanks TiT that's pretty cool although these guys want to see signatures as they are composing which is where the difficulty lies :/

I may be wrong but I don't think Thunderbird is being developed anymore on Mac? I use Postbox now and it has no problems doing this. It's based on Thunderbird.

You are wrong as far as I know; 17.0.5 is the latest version across all platforms: downloads.
