Entourage Email Formatting

In order to setup your email formatting in Entourage 2004 or Entourage 2008 to comply with the guidelines in the IWU Visual Identity Manual, follow the instructions below. 

Note: The email client included with Mac Office 2011 is not compatible with the IWU email system and is not supported.

Email Signature Instructions

Open the signature editor by clicking "Signatures" in the Tools menu within Entourage.



Select "New" from the Signatures window. The signature creation window will open up.


Your email signature should be set to Arial, 10pt, and using all caps.


Once your email signature is complete, it should look like the one below.


Setting the Correct Colors

Email signatures are to use the standard IWU colors. To set these colors, choose Other from the color menu on the toolbar.

Choose the second tab, the color sliders. Then in the drop down box, choose RGB Sliders.

Set Red to 181, Green to 9, and Blue to 56. It will appear like this.


You can save this color by dragging it down to the pallet.

The rest of the signature should use the IWU Grey color. Red will be set to 98, Green to 100, and Blue to 102.



Other Email Formatting

To set the default font in Entourage, follow these steps:

  1. In the Entourage menu, select Preferences.
  2. Click "Fonts" in the "General Preferences" section on the left-hand side.
  3. Select "Georgia" from the drop-down menus labeled "HTML messages" and "Printed Items".
  4. Select "12" from the font size drop-down menu, just to the right.


Note: These instructions are based on version 1.8 of the Visual Identity Manual. In the event of any conflict, the Visual Identity Manual should be considered authoritative.
