Do You Use an Email Signature?

Do You Use an Email Signature? What Does It Say?

This morning I was making plans with friends via email, and after reading through our short exchange, I realized I was the only one not to include an email signature. At work, I use a signature that includes my name, title, and email address. I don't include one in my personal email at all (which according to this post on decoding email signatures, makes me cool). Conversely, one of my friends has a super-thorough email signature including full contact information — address, phone number, email — plus her Twitter username, instant message contact information, and link to her Flickr page.

Do you use a signature on your work emails? Personal emails? What does it say?

Work email should have it. I have used people's emails a lot when I need a client or vendor's phone number or fax, so easy to find if I have an email from them. I really don't like when people put quotes at the bottom of their emails, because you end up seeing it a gazillion times. I'm really glad this site did away with them. The only email signature I've seen that I really liked was, "Sent from my iPhone, please pardon my brevity." Love it, because sometimes you do get like a one word reply to an email, and it seems a bit rude, but a terse reply makes more sense when you know it's coming from a phone.

I used to have everything in my email, but it just gets too long. Now I just sign my name and have a link to my landing page, which takes you to whatever networking you might want to do with me.

"I before E except after C" :P That's my personal e-mail though; the businessy one has nothing.

Email, phone, fax, address, webpage url for work. I actually don't use a signature in personal emails... I have set it up to show a link to my blog, but I rarely include it.

I have a work signature but I do not put a signature on my personal email. It says my name, work address, phone number, and location (my work has multiple sites). It also has something that says "this email is intended for a specific person...blah blah blah."

Work signature is like 30 lines long, but personal email has a Ghandi quote (very simplistic)

My work email has my name, title, company, phone, fax, email, company address, company website. My personal email has "sent from my iPhone", but I think it's time to change that, and used to include a link to my bulldog's blog (yep).
