You must have signed in to and configured Outlook before you can configure a signature - for instructions on doing so please see Setting up Outlook (Office 365)


  1. Open Outlook
  2. Click "New Email"
  3. Click on "Signature" and then "Signatures..." in the drop-down menu.

  4. Click "New" and enter a name for this signature
  5. You will now be able to enter text into the large box in the Signature window (you can copy & paste into the box, including images)
