Email signature - Outlook 2007
What is an email signature and how to create yours

What is an email signature? Is it important?

Most of the time, an email signature is used to show the name of the sender or his company together with other information such as a phone or address at the bottom of an email. 

Emails that are exchanged for personal reasons (e.g. between friends) are not required to include a signature but it would be good to include some of the sender's information, in order to help the communication between them.
An email signature should include, the following important information:
  • name and surname or company name
  • postal home address
  • phone or fax number
  • sender's signature 
If any files are attached in an email, then the file type and the reason of these files should be included in the signature.

The creation of a correct email signature in mail clients, although optional, it is recommended to be used, in a way that incorporates with the above rules, as it can be useful in specific cases.

Note that an email signature should not be confused with a digital signature, because it is not a digital fingerprint of the sender and it only quotes some information in formal or informal way, depending on how the author has created them.
