Today in this article I will tell you why your signature does not appear while replying to any email. Please read the article very carefully from the beginning to the end.

A signature in any email is used to write at the bottom of the email where the email sender gives his identity including mobile number or other communication methods. It is a general norm to write your name, designation, or other identities at the bottom of an email. If you have already created a signature in Outlook your signature will be added at the bottom of the email message. But while you are replying to an email it will not be added automatically.
