Signature best practices
If you turn your email signature back on, make sure it follows the guidelines:
- Be simple. Just submit a few suggestions.
- Please note that inline images may be lost on uploads and replies. Do not put important information in graphic format.
- Think carefully about the personal information you include. You never know who a message will be sent to.
- Separate it. Traditionally, signatures consist of three lines or less, separated from the body by a line of only three hyphens.
- Review, including quotes and opinions. Quotes on current social or political issues may not be accepted by all recipients.
