Outlook signatures using send to mail recipient

This problem has been around since at least Office 97. You set up a nicely formatted, informative signature in Outlook and it doesn't appear when you use "send to mail recipient" from a files shortcut menu. Frustrating.

Here is the latest verbage from the MS KB regarding at least finding your signature manually:


When you use Send To as a Mail Recipient in Microsoft Word 2002, you cannot insert an e-mail signature that you created in Outlook 2002 or Word 2002.


Use the following steps to work around this behavior:
  1. In the Word message, click Insert on the File menu.
  2. Browse to the following location:

    C:\Documents and settings\Profile name\ApplicationData\Microsoft\Signatures

  3. Select the signature file that you want to use.
  4. Click the DOWN ARROW key beside the Insert button.
  5. Click Insert as Text.
