Hello, Antonio
You cannot insert the signature of Outlook directly, but you can create a new signature in the mail merge. Please do as this:
After the step 5 in this article, then, click Mailings > Rules > Fill-in, see screenshot:
In the Insert Word Field:Fill-in dialog box, enter your signature text into the Default fill-in text box, see screenshot:
Then, click OK button, and now, your signature will be inserted into the word file as below screenshot shown:
And then, go on the next steps to finish this job.

Or another easy way also can help you: you just need to type the signature after the message body in the Word document, and it also can be recognized as signature.

Please have a try, hope it can help you!

Hello ,

Good Day to you,

I'm facing and time consuming issue while sending e-mail ( I work in a purchasing department). so when I want to request quotations in multiple vendors using the above mentioned "Send Separately" function is fine. but do you have a solution for when I want to send an emails to multiple receivers (Suppliers) while CC their management. Eg: i want to send e mail to X, Y & Z and when sending to X - X1,X2,X3 & X4 should be CC same scenario for Y and Z. but X and Y and Z must not see the that I send mail to others. only to that specific group. ( for X , To :- X , CC :- X1,X2,X3 & X4 and B)( for Y , To :- Y , CC :- Y1,Y2,Y3 & Y4 and B) ( for Z , To :- Z , CC :- Z1,Z2,Z3 & Z4 and B)

hope you have a solution for that 😊.

Hello Ishara,

For your case, I think you should send three emails separately to X, Y, and Z, rather than in one email. Because we can't only CC to X1,X2,X3 & X4 while sending the email to X, only CC to Y1,Y2,Y3 & Y4 while sending the email to Y, and only CC to Z1,Z2,Z3 & Z4 while sending the email to Z in one message using our "Send Separately" function.
As for recipient B, you can BCC the three emails to B, so B can receive all the emails, and nobody know it.
