Handling signature changed event

Are there any OutlookItemEvents that can be used to handle when the user switches their signature from the Signature drop down list on a draft message? I don't see anything triggering ProcessPropertyChange currently.

Hello Jeremy,

There's no such event. I've used the Outlook Events Logger add-in and found out that the inspector gets activated when you collapse any Ribbon drop down. You can try to use this fact to get the signature and compare it with the previous value: in the Word document representing the email body, find the bookmark named "_MailAutoSig". The bookmark is hidden; to get it you set ShowHidden = True on the Bookmarks collection object.
