    With the discussion going on in this thread about whether or not the "Sent From My iPad" signature looks unprofessional, I've been wondering: What else do people put in their signatures?

    This thread isn't about the iPad question, but email signatures in general. Do you use them? Why or why not? What do you put in yours: Contact info, inspirational quotes, ASCII art? Something else?

    And on the flip side: if you don't care for email signatures, what in particular do you dislike seeing in an email?

    Mine hearken back to the Usenet netiquette for Sig files... no more than 4 lines, 60 characters per line, and are nothing but contact info, and my 4th line is a favorite quote.

    For the most part, my emails will almost always have the signature, Just Me, D. There are times, however, where I may insert a Bible verse or quote of wisdom. It depends on the situation. If it's a business email, I will oftentimes use a template that I've already created containing my name & contact information. Finally, there are times when I'm posting in forums and I may include "via Tapatalk" or something like that, but not all the time.

    Never use signatures, and our supervising officers hate it, lol. They have the time to sit down and make a nice and pretty signature for their correspondences, i just send short and sweet stuff...then when i go in they all complain "What if we don't know who this email is coming from because there is no officer information at the bottom?", and while it does nothing for my future prospects of getting a promotion, i always say "Just take a look up at the top and you'll see who sent" Thankfully they love me too much to stay mad for more than a few seconds, lol.

    I simply use my first name. To me, that is enough.

    By the way: for years I've had the View Signatures option turned off for the forums, but I decided to turn it back on, at least until this thread runs its course. Interesting to see what people attach to each post.

    I always use an email signature block. The content is dependent upon which email account (I use many), and to whom I am sending the email. My stock signature is:

    L1: Apple Logo and First/Last name
    L2: Email address. I realize that this is redundant but it's a throwback to my work email where it's required.
    L3: Contact information, usually a Phone Number and/or Street Address. This line often gets deleted before the email is sent, depending on who/why/need to know
    L4: Twitter handle. Again, can be deleted before hitting "send", as the situation warrants.

     My Name
    phone: 800.555.1212
    twitter: @mytwitter

    I just use the default one. It really never occurred to me to change it really. It seems like in the past few days there has been more of an emphasis on the signature of a message.

    On my iPhone, it says Sent from my small portable electronic telephone machine designed in Cuppertino, CA.

    Work email has my work contact information.

    My GMail has a quote from the USA show In Plain Sight.
