    Email signature chantes

    I have set up my email with a signature containging my contact infortmation,
    when I do send an email w/o any email attachemntes the font of the signature
    doesn't change, but when I do attached a file to my email, the signature font
    settings changes to one that I have not chosen.

    Any ideas?

    I wouldn't. expect the presence/absence of an attachment to make any
    difference. But if you are doing a reply, the font in the original
    message could make a difference.

    In any case, the way to fix that is to specify the font that you want
    for the HTML code for the signature. Create the signature in Notepad
    and save as a HTML file.

    Sample contents could be:

    <DIV><FONT face="Lucida Sans" size=4>This is my signature</FONT></DIV>

    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.
