Office 2007 has some nice features, it really does. However there are some things missing (or maybe I just haven’t found where they are). One of these is the ability to edit your Outlook signature in an external editor. I was bemoaning this fact when I came across a post? on ComputerZen? that explain exactly what I was trying to do; edit my Outlook signature and insert my Feedburner Headline Animator.
Turns out that the only way you can insert this into your signature is to locate your actual signature file that lives in
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures\
Well, in my case, I found my signatures under:
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures (that’s Vista for you)
and modify this directly with your favourite editor (Notepad2 in my case)
Thank you Scott! That’s just the information I was after.
