Digital Etiquette – e-mail siguatures

E-mail signatures – you need one for new e-mails. This should contain as a minimum. 

  • Name
  • Job Title
  • Employer
  • E-mail address
  • Phone number(s)

It should not contain

  • Graphics
  • Quotes

It should ideally be in plain text, with no formatting used. 

You should also have a second e-mail signature used for replies. This should just contain name, job title, and e-mail address. 

People will ask why an e-mail address when this will be evident from the e-mail client. This is true only if you are a sender or recipient. If your e-mail is forwarded, ther is no guarantee the client will preserve your e-mail address in the header.
