Hi,

 

I would like to know how to automatically embed the signature when I click on "attach to e-mail" from the envelope icon, using Adobe Reader DC.

 

I have configured Outlook so that the signature was added automatically when a user answer or create an email from Outlook.

From Adobe, the attached pdf is inserted into the new email but the signature didn't appear automatically.

I have to add it manually.

 

 

What sould I do for insert automatically the Outlook signature in an attached e-mail from Adobe Acrobat Reader DC ?

 

Thank you for your feedback.

Hi Barrym

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble.

 

When Acrobat communicates with your default email application, Microsoft Outlook, it does it through Outlook API (Application Program Interface) and not the User Interface (UI). The use of your default signature is automatic when you create a new email through the User Interface.

 

Currently this is not possible to insert signature when using Attach to Email by Adobe directly.
For attaching to email, other applications use MAPI process of Microsoft and this is the limitation of Mapi that it does not allow insertion of already created signatures in the Outlook.

 

For more information you may please refer to a similar discussion  https://answers.acrobatusers.com/Why-doesn-t-my-email-signature-get-used-when-sending-PDF-files-via-...

 

Hope this information will help.

 

Regards

Amal

Amal-

 

I understand the limitation. However, please consider a new feature that wpould allow the addition of a Rich Text Field in the Adobe Acrobat Reader Preferences that can contain the formatted signature you would like embedded. Since signatures do not change often, it can be easily maintained manually.

 

Thank you in advance.
