Much like the IPhone, Windows Phone 7 includes an email signature indicating where the email originated. For some this signature becomes a “status symbol” or at least gently points out that this email was sent from the latest, coolest device on the planet. In some circumstances, such as corporate environments, this signature may bring some unwanted attention since there are bound to be some users who are still using the BlackBerry 7250.
However, composing emails on mobile devices while on the go are bound to spelling and grammar mistakes for a variety of reasons. With this in mind, I still want to indicate that the email was sent from a mobile device so don’t expect 100% accuracy and also don’t bother looking for me at my desk as otherwise I just would have used Outlook.
Changing this email signature was not entirely intuitive as you can’t change it from the “Global” email settings. Here are the steps required to change your settings:
- Launch Outlook, or other email client.
- Tap on the ellipse […] label
- An additional menu will now appear. Tap on the settings label.
- Change your signature as you deem appropriate and click the check mark
Note if you have other email accounts enabled on your phone such as Hotmail or Gmail, these settings are all independent from each other. So if you only want to change your signature for your Corporate Outlook client you can do that independently of your Hotmail account.
