Missing signature to a twice replyed message in outlook 2003

The original sender receives a reply to her email, and than replies back,
however when she clicks reply her signature appears at the top, but no longer
at the bottom of her original message. She says that this is a fairly recent
change and that the original signature used to stay there (so in total there
would be two signatures from her).

Is there a setting that would change this? I have been through outlook
2003's options but have been unable to find a solution.
Thanks

By bottom, you mean the signature on the original message she sent? Did the
recipient remove it before replying? (Some email clients can do that.)
Outlook won't remove old signatures.

whim, Erebion pounded out on the keyboard:

Hi Erebion,

If the signature has a delimiter above it, which is a dash dash space
("-- "), when someone replies with a mail client that properly handles
the delimiters intended use (unlike MS clients), the mail client will
remove everything below and including the delimiter. It prevents sig
files from being included over and over again to keep file sizes down.

If there isn't a delimiter above her sig, could the responder be
manually removing it to "clean up" the message before sending it?
Nothing more annoying that someone including a graphic in their sig and
then having dozens of the image included in long threaded emails.

If you reply to Diane, the web interface you are using will leave the
unnecessarily long sig included in all her responses. If I responded to
her, my mail client would remove everything below the delimiter, which
would reduce my message size to less than half of what it would be if
the sig wasn't removed. Sigs were never intended to be 12 lines.
