My PEOPLE :lol:

WinXP
Microsoft Outlook and Word 2000

I use Word as my email editor.

I don't know WHAT I did but for some reason Word puts my signature in every email I do. Including replies, forwards etc...This didn't use to happen. I have no idea what I did.

I have the box checked to not do this...this is in Outlook. Is there some place I need to do the same in word?

Help pulease :)

What version is your Outlook?

Did you change your settings in:

Tools > Options > Mail Format Tab
Signature for new messages = <None>
Signature for replies and forwards = <None>?

Outlook is 9.0.0.2711

Yes and no.

The option on the tab is 'don't use signature when replying/forwarding'.

What other options are there under the heading "signatures?"

I don't think this has anything to do with a setting within word.

There are no other options under signature in Word. If start a new email and word pops up.

You go to options, general tab and there you can setup your sig but there are -0- options about forwarding and such.

in outlook it says use this sig by defalut: *drop down list*. But it's grey'd out because i'm using Word as my email client/thingy.

The only other option is 'sig picker' but that's grey'd also...then there is the option to 'Don't use when replying or forwarding' and it's checked.

Ok, I am a bit lost with this. If you open a new email, chose Options>General tab>Email Options button>Email Signature tab you don't have a "Choose your default e-mail signature" option there?

Try unchecking 'Don't use when replying or forwarding' option in Outlook options, if you use word 2000 as your email editor this should be controlled thru word.

didn't work.

It still shows up.

However, I don't see anywhere in Word to keep my sig from appearing.

In the mail format area where you all are looking, click the dropdown menu that says "Use this signature by default" -- change it to "none"

Cheers

Not sure about this ATNO, he already said it was greyed, that's why I got lost

When you use word as your email editor all this options as disabled in outlook, the strangest thing is there's should be an option in word to enable signatures only for new messages and not for replies. hmmm

If you open word (not thru outlook) options> general tab> etc... do you have a "Choose your default e-mail signature" option?

I see. Then go to Word Tools | Options Click Email Options.

At the bottom of that tab set both "Signature for new messages" and "Signature for replies and forwards" to "none" from the dropdown menus.
