#TipoftheWeek - Changing your Email Signature

This week's #TipoftheWeek comes from something I've been seeing a lot of folks have in their email lately (especially since it's vacation time and more people are probably answering their emails from their decks or the beach).

It's the little bit at the bottom of the email that says:

"Sent my CARRIER device" or "Sent from my DEVICE_MODEL device"

It's the 'default' email signature in most devices, set up by either the manufacturer to help advertise their device, or the carrier to remind you who they're with.  To me, it just looks 'lazy'.  It's like going to someone's house and they put up photo frames but left the stock photo in there.  It's YOUR device, make it YOURS!

So, customize your signature (or even delete it entirely).

Here's the how (and I show you via both Gmail and the stock email client)

Gmail - click the action button (menu) / settings then choose signature (you may be presented with the option for which account you want to edit -- if you have more than one)


You then get a pop up where you can put your signature in ...


Put anything you want in there.  Unfortunately you don't get 'rich text' editing features like italics or bold etc... but you want it to be simple.

Here's for the stock email program - click the menu then settings (you may be presented with the option for which account you want to edit -- if you have more than one) and then choose signature.


Then it's the exact same as for Gmail.

So, customize your device so that your email replies advertises for YOU and not THEM.
