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.
