    Signing into live mail on the web I can create a rich text signature. Every
    mail sent via the web interface can include this signature.
    Similarly, OE had an option to include a rich text/ html signature.

    In my experience LMD doesn't! I have tried working around this, tried
    creating a html signature and having LMD read that - but it doesn't work. Am
    I alone with this, or do others have the same experience?

  2. Owen,

    Can you elaborate on "it doesn't work"? What exact steps are you doing and
    what symptoms are you seeing? For example, does the signature just not show
    up ever? Does it show up if you do a plaintext signature but not a html
    signature? Or do you get an error?

    More information will help us answer your question.

    Stacey, thanks for your reply.

    I dug a little deeper and found that the html sig. I had created in word was
    the culprit. Converting the sig. into basic level html tags has corrected the
    problem, and I am now satisfied with my html sig. within LMD.

    However, the ability to create a rich text sig. within LM online, and the
    ease at which I can do so, is a feature I sorely miss within LMD.

    Do future developments include this kind of functionality?

    Thanks for your time, Owen!

    We've talked about adding more rich signature options in future versions,
    but haven't yet made any decisions.

    Thanks for the feedback.

  5. People might like the ability to add random signatures from a collection (in
    a file or folder).
