Creating HTML signature in Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac

Creating HTML signature in Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac

When Microsoft Outlook for Mac was released it was a huge leap forward in terms of what was available before (Entourage), but it is still the poorer relation to Outlook 2010/2013 on Windows.

One area that is particularly lacking is that the ability to create and edit signatures in Outlook 2011 is pretty limited. In this article I am going to show you how you can still have a fancy looking html signature even if you are running Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac.

First of all you need the html version of your desired signature, if you are quite savvy then you can create your desired signature using your html editor of choice – or get someone to do it for you such as your web/graphic designer.

Once you have the html signature you can proceed with adding it as your signature in Outlook 2011 as follows:

1. Open the signature in your browser (I used Opera – but should work with most browsers) and press CMD + A (this selects everything on the page) then press CMD + C (this copies everything you just selected).

2. Open Outlook, select Outlook menu > preferences > signatures.

3. Now click on the + sign in the bottom left of the signatures box to create a new signature.

4. If there is anything shown in the right-hand box for your new signature delete it.

5. Click into (the now empty) right hand box and press CMD + V (this pastes the signature you copied from your browser).

6. Click on the “Default Signatures” button and set your default signature.

That’s it, you now have a fancy html signature with Outlook 2011 for Mac.
