ARCHIVED: With a BlackBerry, how do I change my signature?
You can change the signature displayed when you send mail from your BlackBerry handheld. This signature is independent of any signatures you have created through Outlook or any other email client.
You can customize the signature added to email sent with your BlackBerry either by using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager or directly from the BlackBerry itself.

- From the Messages screen, click
Menu, and then scroll down and choose
Email Settings, and click the trackball.
- Move the cursor to the
Use Auto Signaturefield, and select
Yes. In the text box that appears, enter a new auto signature.

Note: Your signature does not appear while you are composing an email message on your handheld. Instead, it is appended to each email message you send. The auto signature is not appended to PIN or SMS messages.
