Creating Email Signature in your Email Client

If you are using an email client to access your domain emails, you can create personalized signatures for your email messages. You can include text, images, your electronic business card, a logo or even an image of your handwritten signature. 

Note: If you use both an email client and your Doteasy webmail, you will need to create a signature in each. The email signature you create in your webmail will not be transferred or applied to email messages you send using an email client, and vice versa.
