How to Create an E-mail Signature on an Android Phone

You can have oodles of fun and waste oceans of time confirming and customizing the e-mail experience on your Android phone. One of the most interesting things you can do is to modify or create an e-mail signature.

It’s highly recommended that you create a custom e-mail signature for sending messages from your phone. Here’s an example:

DAN
 
This was sent from my Android phone.
Typos, no matter how hilarious, are unintentional.

To create a signature in Gmail, obey these directions:

  1. Start Gmail.

  2. Press the Menu soft button.

  3. Choose More and then Settings.

    If you see no settings, choose Back to Inbox and repeat Steps 2 and 3.

  4. Choose Signature.

  5. Type or dictate your signature.

  6. Touch OK.

You can obey these same steps to change your signature; the existing signature shows up after Step 4.

To set a signature for the Email app, heed these steps:

  1. Start a new message.

  2. Press the Menu soft button.

  3. Choose More and then Email Settings.

    In some cases, the command might be General Settings.

  4. Choose Compose Options.

    Or you may be lucky and find the Signature command.

  5. If prompted, choose your e-mail account.

    You create a separate signature for each e-mail account, so when you have multiple accounts, repeat these steps.

  6. Edit the Email Signature area to reflect your new signature.

    The preset signature was probably set by your cellular provider, something like “Sent from my Verizon Wireless phone because Verizon has the fastest network available in the most places and you should switch to Verizon right now no matter which phone you have or, if you already have a Verizon phone, buy a second one on the Family plan.”

    Feel free to edit the preset signature at your whim.

  7. Touch the Done button.

When you have multiple e-mail accounts, repeat these steps to configure a signature for each one. Choose the e-mail account first before you follow the second set of steps to create a signature.
