    Having lived through Entourage, tried Outlook, and done all kinds of database repairs, my best advice is to put a bullet through its brain and use Apple's Mail. Outlook for the Mac is different from Outlook for Windows; your prior experience with Outlook for Windows will not really help. Mail is better behaved and much less quirky.

    This is an Outlook problem, not an iMac problem.

    Regardless...

    • Open Outlook Preferences (Outlook from the menu bar, then Preferences...)
    • Click Signatures
    • Make a mental note of the Signature name of the signature you want as your default.
    • Click the Default Signatures... button.
    • For the Account you are using, ensure the signature you want is selected for Default signature.

    Outlook 2011 signatures for multiple accounts

    I have the same issue, two accounts but the signatures won't automatically swap, and the above solution doesn't work. Is there a fix?

    I am a Windows Outlook 2007 convert to Gmail webmail to Lion Mail. My advice is switch to Mail, I have 4 accounts setup and 4 different and they all work well. One thing I do miss is the ability to request a mail receipt.
