Set up a signature

Watch how to opt to have your signature appear in front of quoted text in replies, or after. 

The Signature Tweaks lab lets you modify where your signature is placed in email messages, and the Location in Signature lab adds a map displaying the location from where you sent the email directly in the signature.

Add an email signature

A signature is a bit of personalized text (such as your contact information or a favorite quote) that is automatically inserted at the bottom of every message you send. Here's a sample signature:


Ms. Smith

(123) 456-7890 x123

Language Arts, 5-6

Class site:


To create a signature:

  1. Sign in to your Google Apps mail account
  2. Click the Settings gear icon at the top of any Gmail page, select Mail settings, and open the General tab.

  3. Enter your new signature text in the box at the bottom of the page next to the Signature option. As you type, the radio button will shift from No Signature to the text box.
  4. Click Save Changes.


Apps mail adds your signature at the very bottom of your message. Signatures are separated from the rest of your message by two dashes.


If you don't want your signature to appear on a specific message, you can delete it manually before sending the message. Just highlight the text and delete it before sending.


You are only allowed to create 1 signature per email account.


Note: Rich text signatures are available in Apps Mail allowing you to add your own formatting, images and links to your email signatures.
