Live Signatures

Current version: 2.5.3

Live Signatures is an easy and handy add-in for Microsoft Outlook for automatic substitution of actual data in outgoing messages. A wide set of macros will allow you to automatically insert text into E-mails from other messages or local files, use changeable/variable signatures in the messages, enrich the messages with the statements of famous people (or your own expressions). Because of the macros system, you can insert auto-text or signatures only in the necessary messages, or also in all messages, if the macro Live Signatures is added to the signatures of Microsoft Outlook. Moreover, this add-in for Outlook gives a possibility to enhance the number of macros by creating or linking them up.

Live Signatures is an add-in for Microsoft Outlook. For centralized management of signatures and disclaimers at Microsoft Exchange Server, please try another software — MAPILab Disclaimers for Exchange.

Functions of Live Signatures are not restricted to simple adding of a corporate signature to the messages. On the basis of Live Signatures you can organize automated mailing of company news, sending automatically created journals of program operations, weekly sending of price-lists or reports. With the help of Live Signatures the variable data can be sent by mail or used in the email signatures without making any changes during the message creation.

This Outlook add on doesn't replace the built-in templates for signatures in Microsoft Outlook, it extends their functionality and makes them live: you can modify your current signature templates in Microsoft Outlook by adding new macros from Live Signatures.

Live Signatures works with all types of Microsoft Outlook message editors and supports all message formats (HTML, Plain Text, RTF). Any message in Microsoft Outlook (including message in public folders of Microsoft Exchange Server) and file saved locally or in the public folder can be used as a data source.

List of macros

Currently, Live Signatures contains the following macro types:

%RSS% — Enables you to include data from the RSS feed in your email.
%DISCLAIMER% — Allows adding data into a message from a file or E-mail. Look at the example of component use.
%TIME% — Allows adding the current time into the message.
%DATE% — Allows adding the current date in the message.
%QUOTE% — Allows adding a randomly chosen quote to a message from a data file. Look at the example of component use.
%WINAMP% — Allows adding a name of the currently played track in WinAmp (or other player on its basis) into the message.

Later on, this list can be extended by adding new macros types that can be created by the program user as well as by our company. Because of such extensibility of Live Signatures, other scenarios different from the simple text substitution are possible.
