I just want to change the font on my Windows Mail signature. I want the font for compose/read to be the as selected and I want my signature to be different. It seems like it is all the same no matter what I do. Can someone tell me if I can change just the signature font???
thanks,

You need to use an HTML file for your signature.
It is fairly easy. You also must be in HTML format
for your emails (cannot be plain text).

1) Open up a new email. Type the text you want in your
signature. Choose color/font/size.

2) There should be 3 buttons at the very bottom of the
email. Click Source. You are now looking at the HTML
source code that you need. Alternately you can use
CTRL F2.

3) Open Notepad (Start->Programs->Accessories)

4) Copy the relevant code from the email into Notepad.
That will include everything between these two lines of code:
<BODY bgColor=#ffffff> xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xx
</BODY></HTML>

For my example below, it means I have chosen Verdana,
Bold, Green for the text.

<DIV><STRONG><FONT face=Verdana color=#008000 size=2>
VistaRookie, owner</FONT></STRONG>

It is going to say VistaRookie, owner.

5) Save that code in Notepad as Signature.HTM.
Save the HTM file to a folder of your choice but you
will need to remember the path. Check the file when
you save it because Notepad will want to make it a
..TXT file.

6) Open Windows Mail->Tools->Options->Signatures Tab.
Go down to where it says Signatures, click New. You can
name it something other than signature #1, if you want.
Then go to where it says Edit Signature. Click file. Click
the browse button and navigate to where you saved the
file, signature.HTM. Apply. OK.

7) Go to the top of the Signatures Tab and check or
uncheck general settings as you want them. Your
signature should appear - same as it was when you
originally created it. For testing purposes, you can click
Insert on the email menu and choose signature.
