How to automatically add email signatures to replies in Office 365?

When it comes to Office 365 email signatures, you may want to have different variants for different purposes. It is a common practice to create two signatures for the same sender – one with full contact details and graphics, and one with less details and less or no graphics. The first signature applies only when you send your first email. The next signature is added only when continuing a conversation within the same email thread. Such a setup keeps email threads readable, but with necessary contact details always at hand.

Surprising as it may be, the native Office 365 signatures defined via mail flow rules cannot help you here. Office 365 makes email signatures land at the bottom of an email thread and lets you only use the same email signature design for both new messages and replies.

Despite the ongoing discussion on their legal effectiveness and enforceability, legal teams insist on inserting them into emails.
