In Depth Information
An email signature can include formatted text and graphics.
A typical email signature would commonly include your name and contact information, but
depending on your situation, you might also include information such as your company
name, job title, a legal disclaimer, a corporate or personal slogan, a photo, and so on. You
can even include your electronic business card as part or all of your email signature.

electronic business cards” in Chapter 9, “Manage contact records.”
You can create different signatures for use in different types of messages or for use when
you’re sending messages from different email accounts. For example, you might create a
formal business signature for client correspondence, a casual business signature for
interofice correspondence, and a personal signature for messages sent from another account.
Or you might create a signature that contains more information to send with original email
messages, and a signature that contains less information to send with message replies. You
can format the text of your email signature in the same ways that you can format message
text. If you want to apply formatting that’s not available from the selections of buttons
across the top of the signature content pane, you can create and format your signature,
either in an email message composition window or in a Word document, copy the
signature from its original location, and then paste it into the signature content pane. Using
this technique, you can include artistic content such as WordArt objects and clip art images
in your email signature.
