When sending an email from Word why do I have to add my signature?

When I send an email directly from Word or Excel my signature doesn't 
automatically populate like it does in Outlook.  Is there any way I can get 
it to populate automatically?  I have two outlook accounts that I switch back 
and forth from and I can never tell which one I am sending email from.

Excel and Word are not e-mail applications. If you want to send an e-mail 
from within Word and use the Outlook functionality, then you need to call 
Outlook from Word using a macro. The following will attach the current Word 
document to an Outlook e-mail message c/w signature for the current default 
account: http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm

Sub Send_As_Mail_Attachment()
' send the document as an attachment _
in an Outlook Email message
Dim bStarted As Boolean
Dim oOutlookApp As Outlook.Application
Dim oItem As Outlook.MailItem
On Error Resume Next
'Prompt the user to save the document
ActiveDocument.Save
'Get Outlook if it's running
Set oOutlookApp = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
'Outlook wasn't running, start it from code
If Err <> 0 Then
   Set oOutlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
   bStarted = True
End If
'Create a new mailitem
Set oItem = oOutlookApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)
    With oItem
        .to = "" 'Insert an email address if all messages go to the same 
address
    'Set the recipient for a copy if required
        .BCC = ""
        .Subject = "This is the subject"
    'Add the document as an attachment, you can use the _
    .displayname property
    'to set the description that's used in the message
        .Attachments.Add Source:=ActiveDocument.FullName, _
        Type:=olByValue, DisplayName:="Document as attachment"
        .Display
     End With
'Clean up
Set oItem = Nothing
Set oOutlookApp = Nothing
End Sub

No message in outbox
I tried to send a message with 1Mb attachment to 40 recipients in the bcc field.

Yet there is no message in the Outbox. But what happened to the original message when it first failed to send? I guess it's 'stuck' somewhere but I can...

PowerPoint 2003 to accessible Word 2003 via VBA?

I know I can save the outline as RTF and open that in Word, but the outline does not include any of the following: - text added on a blank slide layout - text in a text box - tables. - images. Is there any way to copy all content from a PowerPoint presentation to a Word document, such that all text remains text and all tables remain as tables? Charles Belo...

Send and Recieve Fix
For a long time I had a problem with my Send/Recieve function in Outlook. This happended in both Outlook 2000 and my current version - 2007. I found I had to re-boot my computer to perform a Send/Recieve in Outlook. Otherwise the sequence would start then stop and say it could not perform due to an error. After extensive Internet and News Group research I decided it was time to run a check on disk errors. This Windows XP facility seemed to have fixed my Outlook problem. I did this about a few months ago now and I have since had no problems with my send and recieve. Unfortunately I do have ...

.EMAIL ATTACHMENTS #2
I have received emails lately that have an attachment with the extension of .email. I can't get these attachments to open.

The closest "legal" file extension would be .eml , which is the Outlook Express default file extension.

How do I copy a horizontal ruler in Word?
I just need to copy text in a document to another part of the same document, including the ruler format, so I don't have to reset the ruler every time. Surely there's a way, but I've searched for hours trying to find it. In earlier versions of Word, we could just hold down the shift or control key, I don't remember which. If by "ruler format" you mean the margin and tab settings, the ruler shows the ones applied to whichever paragraph the cursor happens to be in. You duplicate them by assigning the same paragraph style in each place. On Nov 23, 5:39=...

What was Outlook sending?
Hi, I downloaded my messages using the option "send and receive all". However, the "Show Progress" box indicates that I was also 'sending something'. But I had nothing to send! I look in the "Sent items' folder and nothing was sent at this time. What was Outlook 2003 doing? Santista The usual response here is, "You have a virus". It could be that a virus program is using your Outlook to send spam and/or a copy of itself to people in your address book.

Rules Wizard and Send/Receive error
A couple of days ago, I received an alert from Norton Antivirus software that the file "belt.cab" was corrupted but could not be deleted. Fearing the worst, I manually deleted the file.

I can compose an email, but it will not send. I have checked my email accounts and all appears to be in order. Even after a complete reinstall, I cannot send/receive email. The on...
