Creating a signature

The signature can make or break your professional emails. Without them, we can’t imagine official emails and nowadays a well-structured signature is a must. Let’s compare how you can create a signature in Outlook vs. how you can do it in eM Client.


How to make a signature in Outlook

If you are using Outlook and wondering how to create a signature, we hope to help you with that.

To create a signature, launch the Outlook app and open a new message. In the new message window, go to the Message menu in the top toolbar, select Signature, then Signatures.

When Signature settings are opened, look for the “Select signature to edit” section and below it, you should see the “New” button.

Click on “New” and compose your signature, set it as default for the respective account, and/or set it as default for replies and forwards too. When you’re done, hit the “OK” button to save the signature.

If you would also like to know how to change email signature in Outlok, it’s very easy. Navigate back to the signature menu, select the signature you’ve previously created and you can edit it below in the “Edit Signature” section. Hit the “OK” button again, to confirm the changes and that should be it.

To remove the signature, select one of your signatures, and click on “Delete” below the “Select signature to edit” section.


How to make a signature in eM Client

eM Client offers a lot of customization options and the signatures are no exception to that. In this part of the article, we are going to take a closer look at the signatures feature in eM Client.

Navigate to the eM Client Menu and click on Settings. Proceed to Mail and open the Templates and signatures section. As the name may suggest, this section is split into two- Mail Templates, and Signatures. To get to the signature editor, click on the “Signatures” button and a new window will appear.

In the signature editor click on the “New” button, name the signature and insert or type the signature in the text field below. You can add almost all the formatting you can think of and make the signature pop. With the signature completed click on the “Save” button to preserve the changes.

If you already have a signature in an HTML file it can be imported using the “Import” button and in case you have signatures in Gmail or Exchange accounts, eM Client can even sync those from the server so your existing signatures don’t have to be transferred as long as you are using Gmail or Exchange with eM Client. Apart from the import and signature synchronization, you can save your signatures that were composed in eM Client, just click on the “Save as” button in the signature editor and save the signature as an HTML file.

Back to the “Templates and Signatures” settings because there are still a few things to cover.

In the “Signatures” section you can select which signature you want to use with a specific account. Whether you want to use a different or the same signature with each of your accounts, you can also set different account signatures for new emails, replies, or forwards, it’s all possible just in case you would like to have different signatures for different scenarios.

If you want to keep things simple, you can leave these settings at their default values and pick the signature for a new email from the list when composing the message.

Don’t hesitate to give eM Client a try and if you are already using it, we hope you found this article helpful and informative.
