Dear IT Solver,
Ever since a recent Office update to do with Roaming Options, on some computers we cannot set the default signatures in Outlook.
The roaming options (generally available in October 2022) can get in the way of setting the default signatures. Try disabling the roaming options to see if it makes a difference.
If you're a Microsoft 365 user, then you may to consider re-enabling roaming options, because it's quite handy. It's possible that toggling it off and on will allow to set your default signatures.
If you're not a Microsoft 365 user, maybe you're using Google Workspace Sync for Microsoft Outlook, then it's quite likely this roaming options will get in your way, and so we'd want it disabled.
Disable roaming options
To disable roaming of your Outlook options, use the following steps:
- Select File > Options.
- Under Outlook Options, select General.
- Uncheck the box Store my Outlook settings in the cloud.
- Select OK.
After disabling roaming options, changes you make in Outlook options will now only be applied to the local device.
