I believe the signatures feature that was part of OE, WM, and 2009/2010 WLM has been removed in WLM 2011.

EDIT: As Kari points out (below) the statement I made above is wrong. However, something was removed: the ability to choose which signature to use from a drop down list.

Why on earth would they remove the signatures feature? As far as I'm concerned, that's the death knell for the app. I'll stick with Thunderbird. I have no use for something so dumbed down!
