Email signatures are generally used to display the sender’s name and contact information at the end of an email. Sometimes they are used to give website links or even memorable anecdotes. Regardless of what you wish to make your signature say, it is much easier if this content is automatically added to the end of every email instead of having to add it manually for each email. Below are instructions that teach you how to add your own custom email signature within your Horde email client.
Creating an email signature in Horde
- Log into your Webmail dashboard and choose the Horde option.
From the Horde dashboard, go to the top of the screen and at the right look for the icon that looks a gear. When you click on this icon there will be a series of drop down menus. Simply hover over Preferences and then click on Mail when the menu appears.
Click on the section labeled Personal Information.
In the Personal Information section you can see two drop-down menus. One is for your default identity and the other allows you to select the identity you want to edit. The second drop-down menu also allows you to create a NEW identity if necessary. These identities allow you to specify the sender’s email information including: your full name, the email from address, a reply-to email address, addresses for BCC, and a signature.
- From this page, you are able to create your signature. Scroll down until you find the Signature field. This is located at the bottom of the screen. You can create a text signature using the first box labeled Your signature. If you want to create an HTML signature, then use the editor at the bottom of the screen. If you leave the HTML editor blank, then the text signature will be used.
- When you have finished creating your desired signature, click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
You have now completed creating a signature for your Horde mail. Below is a screen shot of the email signature displaying in your email when you create a new email message.
In order to see signatures while composing an email in Horde, go to: Preferences > Mail > Composition – check the box for Show the signature on the compose screen. Make sure to click on Save. Remember that HTML signatures will show only with the HTML composition on. Additionally, HTML signatures will not be visible if your recipient is viewing emails in plain text.
