Re: "Warning: The signature file specified is not a valid text-fil

Hey Steve:

I know you are trying to help...Any chance you can be a bit more specific

Many thanks,

company I work for onto my emails. I too can't load it because it comes
with the same message. I have even tried to reload back to outlook
only to find that I can't do that now.
This is not good enough, for windows at all. Thois should be a basic
function. If anyone can come up with an answer it would be greatly
appreciated. As it seems that I'm stuck with this situation at the
