    When I receive emails from an iphone or a bb, at the bottom of the message there's usually a line that says: Sent from my iphone/bb (whichever applies). Is that a default setting or an option?

    I'd like to have my Droid do that. Is this possible? How?

    Thanks!

    I'm assuming gmail here, you didn't specify.

    Open gmail,

    menu > settings > Signature

    Put in what you want it to say.

    From within the Gmail message list;

    Menu/Settings/Signature

    Then you type what ever you want in the Append text to messages you send box.

    Thanks!

    I'd already figured that out but thought there might be a special "Droid signature" that could be toggled on/off, apart from my own signature.

    Emails sent from a mobile device tend to be much shorter and prone to typos. Since typed text is much more easily misunderstood than a voice call, a brief 2 line response might be misunderstood for someone being upset, angry, disinterested, etc. With a short signature indicating that it's coming from a mobile device, it's easier to overlook poor wording or lack of details.

    It's more of a tracking strategy for me. So that later I can tell where I sent the message from. Also, as someone else indicated, if my reply is a bit too crisp or short, people can see that it's coming from a phone device and understand the limitations.

    Wait... Is it somehow not possible to do this with an AOL account? I know, I know... AOL is crazy, but I've used it for so long. That, and I am lazy... But, either way, is it possible? hehe

    Funny. When i first got this phone it would sporadically do this from both gmail and yahoo, but never from exchange. Never added a sig, just seemed to do it when it felt like it.

    EDIT: it would say something like "sent from my android device" or something like that.

    Wouldn't this add the signature to every email sent, regardless of whether you were sending from your phone or your computer? I had it set up somehow so that it only add that signature if I sent an email from my phone. Now I have a new one and can't remember how I did it.

    Edit: never mind - figured it out. Duh!!!!!

    For anyone else wondering the same thing, the answer is no. The signature in the email app on your device only applies to email sent from your device in that email app.

    I've also been wondering how to add a 'sent from my...' tag to every email sent from my LG P970, for the same reasons as given by kg6epf. LG told me it was impossible and my hosted service, Cobweb, which uses Microsoft Exchange, told me they couldn't do it either. I have Gmail on my phone but the other account is the one syncd to my PC and laptop. Any suggestions?

    I noticed that when I flashed my android that it said Sent from my Samsung Infuse(TM) on the _____ network.

    The ______ was not my network. So if you flash you may need to change it also.

    Which one do you want to change? I was able to change mine on my @email (not gmail account) following the instructions in the thread above. Not sure where the on is for gmail.

    The loaded question was - why would you want your android to have a signature that reads, "Sent from my iPhone.":D
    vis-a-vis the original post.

    So all these snarky answers and posts and not one practical answer to the question. How do I put a simple email signature on my droid bionic for emails that originate from my droid bionic? Do these forums ever solve simple issues for anyone?
