[Update]: This blog post was updated on May 13, 2022. The Web Add-in is now generally available for Outlook for Windows, Outlook for Mac and OWA.
CodeTwo is the first email signature software vendor to release a modern signature Web Add-in that integrates with both Outlook for Windows and Outlook on the web (OWA)! We’ve once again worked closely with the Microsoft Outlook Add-in Team and implemented their latest API into our signature service to provide seamless multi-platform integration. Support for Outlook for Mac has been added in March 2022.
As a quick reminder, we first announced the new add-in for CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 together with Microsoft back at Ignite 2020. The add-in lets you add email signatures in real time as you compose a message in OWA and, starting today, also in the Outlook desktop client for Windows. It can be deployed organization-wide directly from the Microsoft 365 admin center and is available to end users automatically, without any interaction from them. No need to log in or install any EXE or COM agents locally.
The add-in is now generally available for Outlook for Windows, Outlook for Mac and OWA. Learn more

is the Add-in also compatible with the 32bit Version of Outlook?
That’s right, it’s compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Outlook. For more information about supported Outlook versions, take a look here: https://www.codetwo.com/userguide/email-signatures-for-office-365/system-requirements.htm#signatures-web-add-in-for-outlook
Thank you for giving such useful information that is often difficult to come by. Good job.
How soon is soon for the Outlook for Mac version?
At this stage, there’s no official ETA. We’re currently waiting for a few changes on Microsoft’s backend, to be able to roll this out.
Does this mean the email message stays within Microsoft and does not go through Code Two email services? Similar to client-side mode, but with the benefits of being able to use it on any device and management through Azure?
Yes, exactly. The modern email signature Web Add-in works similarly to the classic COM add-in (in client-side mode), plus it supports OWA and very soon also Outlook for Mac. One of the biggest advantages is that end-users don’t need to install anything at their end- the Web Add-in is deployed org-wide (or to selected users only) from Microsoft 365 admin center.
I would swear there was already an Add-In that worked in OWA and displayed signatures during email composition.
Can you give us a summary of new features that might compel users to consider use of the Add-In?
We have developed another add-in for Outlook on the web earlier. It can be used to dynamically display server-side email signatures. Learn more
The new Web Add-in dynamically inserts client-side email signatures directly into the email body, as you compose a message and lets you choose from available signature templates. Take a look at a short demo
