A couple of months ago we ran a poll asking you if you kept the standard email signature inserted after every outgoing message. Some said they enjoyed bragging about owning a BB, others thought it was a great way to let people know they weren't on their computer, while a few refuse to use it. My personal belief is that there are some people you don't want seeing that "Sent via BlackBerry by" line at the bottom. I'll give you a little hint: my boss who sends messages to my personal email. Let's just say when a person calls in sick they technically should be working from home.
That's why there are two ways BIS users can add/modify their email signature after they initially setup their email account. You can either login to your carrier's BlackBerry Internet Service site on your computer or access directly from the BlackBerry device. Now you'll be able to create a signature that is more in tune with whatever you enjoy.
In a nutshell all you need to do is go into the Email Setup application on your device. If prompted, you'll need to re-enter your login credentials to your BIS account. Next, highlight the email account you wish to modify and click on the menu key to edit. From here you can scroll down to the signature field located under General Options and type in your new outgoing message. Finally, and most important, remember to save your settings when closing out of the application.
You can enter up to 200 characters in the field so you'll have plenty of room to create something just right. At the moment the ability to add a picture or image is unavailable.
- Home screen -> Setup Folder -> Personal Email Setup Icon -> Login -> Choose email account and edit
- Home screen -> Setup Icon -> Email Accounts -> Internet Mail Account (if prompted) -> Select account and edit
- Home screen -> Messages Icon -> Options -> Email Account Management -> Choose email account and edit
There you have folks a quick and easy way to add your own personal touch to your emails. So I'm going to throw this question out there for all of you. Do you use the same signature for each email activated on your device or do you like to change things up a bit and create a new one for each account? Let us know in the comments below.
