Hi ,

I have inadvertently 'transferred' / 'pasted' 2 paragraphs from a long MS/Word file letter into my Outlook mail?

I don't know how I did this, but I can't remove it.

Every time I open a "NEW" mail , or a "Forward" mail or a "REPY" the 2 paragraphs are there , and before I start my new mail message I have to delete everything.

Please advise, how do I remove this nuisance from my mails…

Thanks, hope you can help and look forward to hearing your advice,

Regards,

Stan


P.S. My system is a Medion Professional PC Intel R, Pentium ®4 Cpu 3.00 GHz.. with M.Soft Windows XP Home edition Version 2002, s-pack 3

It sounds like you have put these unwanted paragraphs in to your signature. In Outlook 2003 you can edit your signatures by doing the following:
Arrow Click Tools then Options
Arrow Click on the Mail format tab at the top
Arrow Click on the Signatures button at the bottom

This will now show all the configured signatures, you can edit and delete them as required.

Hi Soft Stag,
Thanks for this, but it doesn't work. I already tried this, and there is nothing in the Signatures box for me to delete.
Is there anything else I can try?

Change the stationary you are using to None, this is in the same Mail Format Tab.

If that doesn't work, try searching your hard drive for the file normal.dot and delete any occurrences of it.
