Have you ever wondered how people add such huge text, images, or other elements at the bottom of each email they send? They don't do it separately for each email they write. They use the signature to make that text permanent on their emails. Signature is one of the best sources of highlighting some of the critical and main points about yourself, your position, the company you are working in, and all the contact details you want to include in your emails. The best thing about Outlook is its ability to add several different elements, such as images and business cards, to make your emails look professional and personalized. In this article, we will show you how to add signatures on Outlook using two ways. You can either select a default signature that will be added automatically to each email you write, or you can also choose a signature for each email separately according to your need.
