Create great-looking signatures for your e-mail

Test yourself

Complete the following test so you can be sure you understand the material. Your answers are private, and test results are not scored.

An e-mail signature is useful because it can:

Verify to recipients that your message came from you and has not been altered.

Automatically give your messages a polished look by including familiar elements such as a standard closing and your name and phone number.

Prevent people from forwarding your message.

When you create your first e-mail signature, that signature will automatically be applied to all new messages.



Fancy touches to your signature, such as bigger or more colorful fonts, will not be visible to someone who receives e-mail in this format:

Plain Text.

Rich Text.


To permanently remove a signature, you would do this:

Select (none) next to New messages in the Signatures and Stationery dialog box.

Manually delete the signature from each new message.

Use the Delete button in the Signatures and Stationery dialog box.
