  • Do the following to e-sign in Outlook:
  • 1. First choose options.
  • 2. Click the dialogue launch box.
  • 3. Select Security Settings -> add digital autograph to the message box.
  • 4. Confirm by clicking OK.

This method of e-signing is very convenient. It doesn’t require any additional settings or mediatory programs to ensure a digital signature. You also don’t have to pay for it or worry that it might not integrate with other platforms. It prevents any possible fraud and ensures the top protection of files. Besides, it’s a very convenient way to sign documents online right from your inbox.
