Email signatures can be useful for a number of reasons, from including essential contact information to simply adding a witty quote or marketing tactic. An email signature is added at the end of every reply, forward, and new message.

Let's look at how to set up your signature in Yahoo Mail to have it automatically added to all the emails that you send.

How to Configure a Yahoo Mail Signature

  1. Open Yahoo Mail.
  1. Click or tap on the Help button at the top right of the page. It's the one that looks like a gear icon.
  2. Pick Settings from the menu that shows.
  3. Click or tap Accounts from the left.
  4. From the right, choose the email account that needs the signature.
  5. Scroll down a little within the Settings window and put a check in the box next to Append a signature to the emails you send.
  6. When you're done setting up the email signature, choose the Save button to submit the changes and return to your email.

If you're using the basic version of Yahoo Mail, follow these steps instead:

  1. From the top of Yahoo Mail, choose Options from the drop-down menu and then hit Go.
  2. From the Signature section, choose the option called Show a signature on all outgoing messages.
  3. Edit the signature and then choose Save from either the top or bottom of the page.
