Email Signatures

Ever want to be able to add stuff automatically at the end of your email address, like your phone number, address, or a link to your website? Email signatures allows you to do that.

In Apple Mail here are the steps:
  1. Open Preferences (under the Mail menu)
  2. Click on the 'Signatures' tab
  3. Click on the little + sign at the bottom
  4. Type what you want in the box on the right (name, address, title, phone number, web page)
  5. To make a link to a web page type in the text you want, then press Apple + K and paste the URL (Internet address)
  6. To make a link to your email type the address, the press Apple + K and then type 'mailto:(your email address)' (example mailto:birks.r@mail.wsd.wednet.edu)
  7. Close the Preferences box
  8. Open an email and you should see your new signature on the bottom

You can have more than one signature (or none) and choose which one you want using the drop-down menu on the right side of a new email.

In Entourage here are the steps:
  1. Open Tools > Signatures...
  2. Click on the green + icon on the top
  3. Give your rule a name (like school, personal, etc.)
  4. Type whatever you want in the box below
  5. Close the box and choose 'Save' when prompted
  6. Open a new email and check for your signature or a drop-down to allow you to choose which signature to use (or none)
