Establish an Outlook Web App (OWA) Signature

Many people know that in Outlook, signatures matter. Even the newest users of Microsoft's email program find their way into settings on the desktop app and enter one that often includes their place of business and contact telephone numbers. What most people tend to overlook, however, is that Outlook Web App (OWA) is a separate program that has its own place for closing text.

OWA Experiences

OWA has two different experiences that dictate its feature-set, the standard experience and the blind and low vision experience. The standard experience includes drag-and-drop support, as well as other things that make using it more like using a natively installed program. The blind and low vision experience uses less bandwidth and requires no special software or browser to access all functions.
