Understanding Email Signature Character Limits for Outlook Web App (OWA)

You're working with both Outlook (desktop) and Outlook Web App (OWA) and therefore want to use the same default signature in both clients.


If your Outlook Web App (OWA) email signature is incomplete, you have reached the character limit for OWA.
