Since Microsoft took out the Source Edit function when going from
Outlook Express(OE)/Windows Mail(WM) to Windows Live Mail (WLM), I
somehow doubt that they'll ever put it back in.
Although that function wasn't designed specifically for creating
signatures, it made it fairly easy.
Of course you do have either OE or WM installed depending on your
version of Windows and could fire it up to compose the signature. Open
a New Message window in OE or WM and create your signature. Click the
Source Tab. (View | Source Edit if not already checked). Highlight the
entire source code and copy / paste into Notepad. File | Save As and in
the File Name field, save as an htm file, (i.e. Sig1.htm). It will be
saved to My Documents by default. Then in WLM Go to Tools | Options |
Signatures. Click: File | Browse and Insert your saved signature |
Apply. You can rename it now if you wish. Of course, if the recipient is
reading in Plain Text, they won't see it.
