Email signatures are automatic “sign-offs” that you can use when sending emails. They automatically add to the end of your email, usually signing off with your name and a salutation.

Of course, email signatures can get more complex by adding website links, your Twitter profile or your job position.

This article will teach you step by step, how to change or create an email signature for Yahoo Mail. Just follow the steps below.

1. First, open up your desired browser whether it’s Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer. You can do this through the Start Menu, Task Bar or Desktop.

Next, type www.mail.yahoo.com into your browser’s address bar.

Or, you can go to www.yahoo.com and click on the purple envelope icon in the top right hand corner.

A settings menu window will open up. Click on Accounts which is on the left hand side and then on your email address.

Add a check (or tick) to the checkbox which says “Append an email signature to the emails you send”. This will ensure that you want to add an email signature to all your emails, and this will allow you to start creating or editing your email signature.

Get to work on your email signature by filling up the text box with the text of your email signature.

A sample email signature could look like this:

Thanks for contacting me!
Your Name
Work Position/Website Link/Phone Number
