How to Create a Signature Stamp for Emails

by Mary Ylisela

A signature in your emails is a great way to save yourself time signing off on emails, provide email recipients with your contact and website information or add a favorite quote to each email. Signature stamps can be created easily, following a few simple procedures in your email program. The process of creating an email signature differs slightly, depending upon your email provider. Follow the instructions here for Yahoo! email and see the "Resources" section for other email signature instructions. Once your signature is created it will appear at the bottom of every email until you decide to change it.

Sign into your Yahoo! email account using your username and password.

Locate the "Options" link in the upper right hand corner of your Yahoo! screen. Click on "Options" so the drop down menu comes down. Then click on "Mail Options."

Find the "Mail Options" menu on the left hand side of the screen and click on "Signatures," located near the top of the menu.

Type the information you want to be used as your signature in the empty text box on your screen.

Click the radio button next to "Show a signature on all outgoing messages."

Save your signature by clicking the "Save Changes" button near the upper left-hand corner of the screen.

Tip

  • Direct people to your business website by including a link or URL in your signature.

Warning

  • Think of everyone who might receive an email from you. Make sure you're not giving out information you don't want everyone to have or offending anyone with text or photos.
