Gmail Tip: How to Setup Your 'Signature'

posted Mar 14, 2012, 6:46 AM by   [ updated Mar 14, 2012, 6:53 AM ]

A signature is a bit of personalized text (such as your contact information or a favorite quote) that is automatically inserted at the bottom of every message you send. 

Here's what my signature looks like (see the red box below).  Whenever I create an email, my name and information is already within the email.  I just click above my name and start typing.

How to create a signature

  1. Click the gear icon , then select Settings.
  2. Enter your new signature text in the box at the bottom of the page next to the Signature option.
  3. Click Save Changes.

Signatures are separated from the rest of your message by two dashes. To see a signature in Gmail, click the Show trimmed content button  at the bottom of the message.
