TiPb Asks: What's your email signature?

TiPb Asks: What's your email signature?

Sent from my iPhone. Sent from my iPad. Thanks to some curt Steve Jobs customer support replies, these default iOS email signatures are nearly iconic now. But are you still using them?

Thankfully they don't include carrier specific spam. ("Sent from my Verizon iPhone not on LTE but still fast and with really good coverage!" -- can you imagine?) Annoyingly, they're not very flexible either. You're limited to one signature and one signature alone, regardless of how many accounts you have setup. Hopefully Apple will let us assign individual email signatures for each account in the future (without the need for #TeamJailbreak, I know!) but until then...

What's your email signature? Do you have different signatures on different devices? Or do you not use one?

"Sent from a Random Apple Device" -- then it's applicable whether it's from a mobile or desktop.

Thats a good one. Im going to use something like that now. "Sent from an Apple Device Thanks to Steve Jobs"

Mine used to be "Send from my iPhone 4. This changes everything. Again" when the hype for the new iphone was high. Now it's just "iPhone 4".

If you can read this, thank a teacher.
If you can read this in English, thank a veteran.
"If You Can Not Stand Behind Our Troops , please Feel Free To Stand In Front Of Them."
Don't forget to pay your taxes. 30 million illegals are depending on you.

It depends where I'm at. "Sent from my car", "Sent from my bed", "Sent from the end of the line at the bank"...
It's exhausting having to keep changing it.

Mine is identical to those sent from a PC except they lack color logos and contain the following : "Please excuse any typos. This message was written on a tiny keyboard". Of course I need no such apology when I write from the iPad2

Don't use them. Nobody cares that I send from a particular device. It also gives away that I might not be home and frankly my location is nobody's business.

Mine is "Sent from my iPhone on AT&T"...but I may just get rid of it. Was never a fan of the "sent from my..." email signatures.

Have multiple signatures one for work and other personal.. ( Jailbreak tweak named Mail Enhancer )

My email signature will never be this (unless I fake it): Sent from my Apple TV.
Apple knows better than to cram full internet complexity into the TV experience. Google tried that with WebTV. I mean Google TV. FAIL.

I don't see the point in your comment. You could apply that in a million different ways. I could just as easily say, "My email signature will never be this (unless I fake it): Sent while maintaining a platonic relationship with SockRolid's girlfriend." But that wouldn't be entirely true, either, now would it? Keep BS like this out of the comments section, and leave them on your Facebook wall... please. I just don't care about what you WON'T write.

I do not use signatures.
I like to stay mobile and I simply believe that it is of no benefit of the receiver to know whether I wrote my message on my BlackBerry or from my iPad.
The exception is new message from my office pc, there I usually include my company default signature with logo and contact details.

User Mail Enhancer from Cydia .. I have 4 email accounts and diff signature's for all of them .. it works perfect.

" I want to have separate signatures for different accounts!! " = TeamPure haha .. Jailbreaking is fun :)

I use Pastebot to store all of my email signatures. A few taps allow pasting into a composed email.

-Name
Sent From (My iPhone 4, iPad 2, or MacBook Pro) or (MobileMe)
I know this sounds stupid, but I do it to keep track of my emails. If someone tries telling me they received (or didn't receive) an important email that I sent them, I can ask them where I sent it from. Then I know if they are b.s.ing or not or if that particular email was ACTUALLY sent from me.

I've always deleted the default email signature immediately because I find it embarrassing. Ironically I felt it would mark me as a geek - though my current one is the one that is actually geeky - though far more subtle IMO.

"Sent from my iPad nano" I'm sure you can guess what device that ones coming from.
Then I have my Pre Plus that can assign different signatures for each email account. :p

I have different sigs for different accounts. I'm not jailbroken but I use MailSig from the app store. Let's you use images and coloured text.
It used to be 'sent from my iBerryDroid'

Mail Enhancer is the jailbroken app that I use and love.
This allows multiple signatures for your accounts and change when you change your email address within the Mail.app.
This app if you setup your signature to allow can actually send HTML emails over the UGLY test based emails that are sent via the iPhone/iPad.

My gmail signature is "The information in this email is totally and utterly unreliable. Any reliance on the information contained herein is likely to cause the said person to be the subject of much ridicule. Continued reliance on the voracity of said information may lead in the long run to permanent and irreversible brain damage and eventually lead to the use of heavy medication and clinical confinement. The sender takes no responsibility whatsoever for any damages psychological, physiological, or otherwise arising from the use of said information."
Surprising how few people actually read it.

wow You guys edited my post huh? That's a bit petty isn't it?
And what's the inference? That i have a boyfriend? That somehow being gay and having a boyfriend would be bad? Pretty sad to change my post to that "boyfriend" comment like that's some sort of insult. Sorry, it's not. cause i'm not H-phobic.

Edit: OH No. apologies to tipb. Nobody edited it. Just some guy used my name to make a fake h-phobic post. Sad. very sad.

When I had a Blackberry with Verizon it was really annoying since the default email signature was "sent from my BlackBerry a Verizon Wireless device" luckily it took about five minutes on the Crackberry forums to figure out how to change that. Now with my Droid X its set to "Thanks (my name). But after reading these comments im tempted to change it to something more amusing just to see if anyone notices.

*My name
"If you think my hands are full,
You should see my heart"
Slightly corny, I know, but after complications, I'm blessed with four kids. People constantly tell me I have my hands full, and I have to tell ten it's nothing compares to how full my heart is, so it for on my email, too. People that I correspond with on email know this!

I like the distinction. Too often people email me from their iPhone wired device.
Troglodytes.

Almost the same as Mo. Mine reads" Sent from my iPhone 5 beta." You should see the questions I get.

My signature is blank. I don't want "Sent from my iPhone" going out on my professional work emails (tacky), and I don't want my work signature going out on my personal emails. Apple really needs to fix this. This is another annoyance (along with not being able to turn off "shake to undo" and notifications) that should have been fixed a long time ago.

Don't use a signature. But if I had to, I saw this one and thought it was creative.
[]D [] []v[] []D

Definitely going to have to agree with the grade level... A corporate exec. would have gone with:
|B [] (G [P [] []v[] [P [] []\[]
Yes, I know it is not exactly the same
No, I don't care
My signature says:
Spelling complements of iPhone

Sent from my iPhone, while I'm having a phone conversation, via AT&T
just to stick it to the a-holes who think Verizon wins :)

I know people ho use the signature "Sent from my iPhone" when they send from their desktop. I guess they think they are thus excused for the shortness of and the errors in the mail.

Oh I'm not so sure. I don't think you could get more controversial than a fake Steve Jobs sig. You must've been quite the prankster growing up.

Mine has my name and email address, my blog and address, my website and it's address. . . then says (Sent from my phone- please excuse any spelling and grammar mistakes. Thanks in advance!)

I usually just say, sent from my mobile phone so people can excuse some mistakes but it isn't thought of as pushing a particular brand. I like Apple products but I don't like wearing brand labels if I can avoid it.
