    I'm using Outlook Express 6 and under the same account, I'm using 2 different email addresses. I created two different signatures to use for the two different emails.

    under Tools > Options > Signatures > Advanced
    you are suppose to be able to designate what signature goes with what email for signatures to be automatically added to emails when you compose an email.

    Problem: when I click Create Mail then change the From option to the other email I want to send from it is not changing the signature like it should. Is there a fix for this?

    Actually, it is not broken. It will not automatically insert the designated
    signature to a specific email.

    1) On the signature tab, do not put a check mark next to either
    signature setting (Add signatures to all outgoing messages)
    (Don't add signatures to Replies and Forwards).

    2) When you create a new email and want the signature that goes with
    that address, click Insert->Signature and choose the correct one.

    Ok thank you! I guess it was my misunderstanding on how it worked.
