Add an Image to Your Outlook.com Signature

Personalize your email signature with a logo or picture

Outlook.com is Microsoft's free webmail service, and it's the successor to the discontinued Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Hotmail services. Outlook.com lets you create an email signature that's added to all your emails automatically. Additionally, you can add an image to your signature to personalize it even further.

If you have an Outlook.com account with an older Hotmail address, set up and format your email signature image the same way as everyone else who uses Outlook.com.
