How To: Adjust Entourage 2008 Signature Block Placement

If you have enabled a signature block in Entourage 2008, you know the default placement when replying or forwarding a message is, to say the least, bizarre.  Entourage places your signature at the very bottom of the message - under the original message.  What were they thinking???

If you'd like to have your signature block behave the way it does in Outlook, inserted at the end of your reply which appears above the original message, here's how:

  1. Click on "Entourage" menu item
  2. Click on Preferences
  3. Click on Reply and Forward
  4. In the Mail Attribution section click the radio button next to "Place reply at top of message and include...." See the graphic below for proper setting
  5. Click OK
  6. Done!
