Default Droid Text/Email Signature?

So I have been noticing that the idont and blackberry phones automatically places a "sent from" signature in emails and texts....

I cant find anything like that for the droid though.

Its not really a big deal, but Id love to respond to someones email from an idont with an itdoes

It's a feature in Gmail.

Go to the option, use the menu system, and go to settings. Signature is in there.

But it is not in the other mail app. So if you want a sig in exchange, you are out of luck. I can't believe they missed that.

I was just thinking earlier today that I wouldn't mind a text message signature that says "Driod sent this" in response to the "Sent from my iPhone" ones.

Thats all I want.

Will changing the signature in gmail distinguish when its being sent from the phone or a computer?

Are you using some other email app or just the standard Gmail functionality with the Droid?

If just standard Gmail, it's really easy:
1. Click on Gmail(which takes you to your Inbox)
2. Push the Menu button(2nd from the right of the hard buttons at bottom of the phone.)
3. Select "Settings"
4. The first option you see is called "Signature". Click it.
5. Put whatever text you want in there for your sig and click Ok.
6. Done!

Mine says "DROID sent this."

If you come up with a more clever one, let us know

Default Signature

I see where that works from the Gmail app, but it doesn't work from the regular Email app, which allows you to combine inboxes from gmail, other email, and Exchange. Anyone have a fix for this?

Signatures are only supported in gmail. Visit the link below and click the star to prompt google to do something about it.

yeah, I'm not using the general email app. Sucks that it doesn't work for that one, they should probably fix it for all the people using the Droid for all serious work email too. I'm currently only using Gmail, so I've had no worries.

Another idea you all might consider(depending on what your employer thinks about it) is to simply forward your other email account to your gmail account so you use only one account for all. If you don't want to mix business and personal, create a second Gmail account JUST for work(I have 2). Then forward. Then at that point you can use the gmail signature until Google makes an update to the main email app

I'm glad they didn't include this, I don't want to advertise the Droid every time I send a message

The signature in the GMail app is independent of the signature you set in GMail from a PC. You can set them to be the same, or you can set them to be different.


BTW, from my limited experience with it, it seems that the general email app really blows.

I have been happy with the corporate email for the most part but it is ridiculous that it doesn't have a signature option. Since I've only had the phone a day I figured I just hadn't found it yet. Hopefully this is addressed in the OTA next month.

so I stubmled across this thread looking for a way to combine the inboxes like my blackberry did.

I have 3 gmails 1 hotmail texts and fb.

I'd settle if the gmails could be combined into one inbox with a single icon on the home screen.

What I have found so far is that you can use the regular mail app to combine inboxes but you still can't access the combined inbox from an icon on the desktop, you have to access the email icon then chose combined inbox, which really is not much better then the 3 gmails combined into one icon but seperated into their own inboxes.

So anyone know if it's possible to combine gmail inboxes into one inbox and have direct access to that inbox from the home screen without having to select multiple links....aka email icon, then combined inbox.

thx...sorry for threadjack, this seems like it should be so simple, yet, it's not.

I know that you can if you use Handcent. I don't know about the stock SMS because I don't use that one.

Handcent allows you to create a signature for SMS. Doesn't look like the standard messaging app does.

I absolutely need the ability to add a signature to my corporate email as our department requires this. I noticed a co-worker has an HTC model running 1.x version of Android that appears to have this option. I wonder why it was removed in 2.x
I will also look at Touchdown which I saw recommended in another thread.
Otherwise, Lovin' the Droid, my Crackberry is now collecting dust.

If you want the signature, a message lock pad pictures in the back of your messages you will have to go the the market and download .

Default email signature

I hated that I could not have a automatic email signature in my corporate email. An app called inserty allows an fairly quick email signature (need to do a few things to get it but it works).

In order to add a signature for text messaging:
-go to the messaging menu
-choose Text Message
-press the menu button on the lower left side of the device
-choose Message Settings, scroll to the bottom
-choose Edit Signature, voila....

Unfortunately it appears that you can't add a signature for each email account on the Droid. That leaves those of us that work on the road replying to our customers without a signature, total bummer.

The ChompSMS is purty cute and flexible for text messaging. For those of us that are semi-blind it allows us to change the size of the fonts and has a lot of other cool stuff. It's also within the budget, free, although the folks that created wouldn't mind a contribution.

We downloaded K-9 Mail to use for non gmail accounts and that has a signature that can be customized to say whatever you want it to say. Have had less problems with this email app than the stock one with android. Had problems with the stock app checking and receiving emails but no problems with the K-9 app.

There are 2ways i noticed to set up gmail. One happen when i initially setup my phone whiche gives you a shortcut right to gmail. Or you can setup useing the built in email app/program which will automatically enter a sig saying your message was written from droid. At least this works for my droid x.

Laugh Droid X Corp Email Signature

You can set your email signature for corporate sync account, I found it today.

Go into your Corp Sync account Inbox.
Hit the menu button.
Choose Email Settings.
Select "Compose Options" from the menu.
Email Signature section is on the bottom!

Note: You can also get to the email settings screen while composing a corp sync account email.... Hit compose, hit menu, choose More, choose Email Settings.

You can also set your Signature directly on the Droid X (and I presume the original Droid) by going to...
Your Email Account Icon
Menu Button at bottom of phone
Email Settings
Compose Options...
the setting reading "Sent via Droid on Verizon Wireless" can be freely-edited in the bottom window input pane.

So you can make it read anything you want.

The easiest way I've found to add a signature to text messages is by adding a "Quick Text" with the signature you want...works perfectly!

I don't know if you can on the stock version of the SMS app. But if you install Handcent (I'm sure Chomp has it as well, both are in the market), I know you can add a signature file...

Somewhat late.

On my new Droid X if you go into Settings/Data Manager/Data Delivery/Email & Corporate Sync/Compose Options a screen will appear that will let you delete or compose a signature
