Making a Unique Signature to Use in Your Email Reply

Most people probably use Outlook for their email account but I use Yahoo. I just struggled to update my Signature when sending an email and thought I would share how to do it if you haven't done it before or struggled like I just did. Previously I had my Blog address and my Website at Deja View Photography at the bottom of all my emails however because they are in Plain Text my clients can't link directly to my sites listed at the bottom of my email. If I changed the language to Rich HTML the signature includes links to my site but it looks pretty confusing in the email. The simplest way to reach my sites that you see at the bottom of my email is to copy and paste the address into the URL box at the top of you Internet page.

Here is the info on changing your signature if you use Yahoo. I copied this information from the Help Menu which is very useful if you know the right question to ask.

How do I add, edit, or delete a signature?
To add, edit, or delete a signature:
  1. Sign in to Yahoo! Mail.
  2. Click the Options menu in the upper-left corner, and select Mail Options from the pull-down list.
  3. Click Signature at the side.
  4. From the menu on the right, select a signature option:
    • Show a plain text signature: Allows you to create a simple, text-only signature.
    • Show a rich text signature: Allows you to choose the font, color, and size of the text in your signature, and also include images.
    • Don't use a signature: Select this to turn your signature off. Note that you can delete your signature in a message when you’d rather not send it.
  5. Next, add or change your signature by typing in the text area.
  6. To save your changes, close the Options tab (hover over the tab and click the X that appears).
Your signature now appears at the bottom of any message you create.
Note: If you create a rich text signature, it will only appear in rich text if you are composing your email in rich text mode. When composing an email, you can switch to rich text mode by clicking the Switch to rich text below the email's subject line.
