In a previous article I mentioned how important email signatures were as a means of driving traffic to your website. In this article I will explain how to go about setting one up. Let’s take the following example:

Using Outlook Express this is the way that you go about it.

Step 1 – Select Tools > Options from the menu bar.
Step 2 – Click “Signatures”.
Step 3 – Make sure that you select “Add signatures to all outgoing messages” – within the “Signature settings” section. It is up to you whether you would like your signature to appear in “replies” and “forwards”:


Step 4 – Click “New” (you can change the name from “Signature #1” by clicking “Rename”) – within “Signature” section:


Step 5 – Type in the text that you would like to apear at the end of your email messages – in “Edit signature” section:


Step 6 – If you’re happy with this, click “Apply” and “OK”.
Note: when you create a message, the URL or email link will no be activated. This happens when the email is sent.
