Adding a signature to your outgoing emails in Outlook Mobile is a simple and quick way to make your emails more professional. A signature can also act as a business card of sorts, allowing people to reference your message and your contact information at once without having to pull up an address book. Also, by automating a signature, you can send emails with Outlook Mobile more efficiently. After all, you don't have to worry about signing off each time you send a message.

Step 1

Think about what information you want to include in your signature. Do you just want to sign off with your name? Would you like to include a salutation, such as "Sincerely," "Best," or "Regards"? Do your clients need to know your phone and fax numbers? Make note of what you would like to appear at the end of each email.

Step 2

Tap on the button on your phone that says "Messaging." This will bring you to a screen that will allow you to select "Menu." You'll then want to click "Options" and "Signatures."

Enter your signature, and remember to spell check your entries. According to, "You can even add a signature to SMS/MMS messages from this window, but due to character restrictions, it probably isn't worth doing." For emails, however, a signature is a polite way to end a message.
