[Update]: This blog post was updated on December 23, 2021 to include Microsoft’s video with CodeTwo add-in presentation.
At this year’s Ignite, Microsoft Outlook Add-in Team is going to premiere new capabilities in their Outlook Web Add-in API. And we’re excited to tell you we’re the first signature vendor to be adding these new features to our Signatures Add-in for Outlook. If you’re using Outlook (client-side) signatures in CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365, we’ve got a lot to show you.
UPDATE: Here’s an official video from Microsoft that shows what’s possible with our new Signatures Add-in for Outlook:

Email signature-wise, the most notable change the Microsoft Outlook Add-in Team is releasing at Ignite is the ability to automatically insert signatures based on email recipients. We’ve already implemented this feature in our Outlook add-in and we’re planning a global rollout soon. What’s great about this feature is that signatures can dynamically change as you type different recipients:
Pretty cool, don’t you think?
But that’s not all. If you use server-side signatures (added in the cloud after an email is sent), our Signatures Add-in for Outlook will be able to preview these signatures, too. You’ll no longer need to have a separate add-in for that. Our modern Web Add-in will handle it all. This update is just around the corner.
One more thing: the long-awaited Outlook for Mac support is coming. Microsoft is rolling it out gradually for all the Microsoft 365 distribution channels, and according to their roadmap you can expect the add-in to work with your Macs by the end of the year. Just a sneak peek:
Stay tuned for more updates!

Any progress on the availability of this feature soon?
We’ve got pretty much everything ready at our end to launch the recipients-based feature. However, the only blocker is the lack of appropriate APIs in Outlook. We are waiting for Microsoft to roll them out first.
