I've set up a signature (created in Word) in Outlook 2003. The lines with my
email address and web site are Arial 9 in Word and in my signature when I
look at it under Tools/Options/Mail Format/Signatures. "Format/Reveal
Formatting" also shows Arial 9. But, when I start a new email, the lines in
my signature appear as Times New Roman 9.

Those lines with my email address and web site got formatted automatically
as hyperlinks when I created the signature. Is the Times New Roman a default
font for hyperlinks? Is there some way I can turn it off? Our company
standard for the signature block is Arial 9.

Thanks for any insight you can offerKaren P

on the highlight part of your email you need to right click and "remove
hyperlink". this will remove the link.

I'm not sure what is default for hyperlinks, but you could edit the HTML
signature in notepad and change the font it uses. First, I would check the
font settings in IE's Internet options (Fonts button at the bottom of the
general tab) - older versions of outlook pick up data from it and TNR is the
default in it.
