    Does anyone know if they plan to update the droid to allow for email signatures on outgoing emails, like they do on every other pda. What apps currently allow for this and how do those 3rd party email programs compare for pop3?

    I use k9 mail (free in the market). I have gmail, one imap account and one pop3 account set up. I have signatures in all of them.

    I had the same problem until switching to Market's Handcent SMS. Works much better for me than the Off The Shelf.

    I use Touchdown from the market, I have found it to be more stable than the stock application on my Droid and it allows for the signatures.

    can you use touchdown for multiple accounts? I have an Exchange account and a hotmail account. The out of box apps for these are pretty lame.

    I would like an app that allows me to delete pop3 e-mails from my phone. I tried the app called Seven and it worked pretty good however it would not display HTML e-mails which was a deal buster for me.

    The only issue that i had with touchdown is that it kept duplicating my contacts for some reason. It could have been something I was doing wrong but i got fed up with it and uninstalled it when my trial was over.
    If it wasnt for the contact issue it looked pretty promising.

    It looks like the issue has been assigned to an Android project team member. Still no word on when it'll be implemented.

    Open GMail client, go to settings, first option is Signature.

    Droid Does.

    I don't use gmail... I already had enough email addresses/accounts when I signed up for my gmail account when I got the Droid. I use exchange server emails with the stock Andorid email app.

    Children, children ... let's settle down a bit. The DROID DOES ... allow you to install apps that solve your problems. ;) Yes, K-9 Mail DOES do signatures. A different one for each account, if I recall correctly. But please read this thread (at least the 1st post anyway) for the download link to get K-9 Mail. The version on the Market is out of date. :thinking:

    Ah... An open-minded individual. You will do well, Grasshopper. :)

    The "DROID DOES" a lot of cool things right outta the box. But isn't half the point of buying a smart phone like the DROID the ability to install apps to fit one's personal needs? A point to pontificate...

    There is NO excuse for not putting a signature option on the exchange client. This is VERY basic stuff. NOBODY should have to download an application like K9 or Touchdown to get this functionality. I hope that this is FIXED in 2.1

    Apparently not for a lot of people. It's out-of-the-box or nothing. Seems so limiting IMO. I wonder if these people rely on Notepad on their PC's for writing documents and Paint for graphics... :rolleyes:

    "Basic" is highly SUBJECTIVE. Every single person out there has a "basic" feature and feels that there's no excuse for not including whatever the feature happens to be.

    The ERIS has signatures for goodness sake. The DROID has signatures, just not in anything but gmail. This is pretty big oversight. Check out this:

    https://supportforums.motorola.com/...FA88D35DD5F1BB9A04283638292D7C.node0?tstart=0

    Or this

    Issue 4588 - android - Email app should allow automatically adding a signature over Exchange - Project Hosting on Google Code

    If 2.1 does not have it, I will root my phone and add the 15 or 20 lines of code myself but I don't want to have to do that if I don't have to. This is really basic stuff. It's an email signature for goodness sakes...

    Barb, maybe you can help me out. Just downloaded K-9. I found the place to change my signature but I can't seem to find a way to save my new signature. Am I missing something or just brain dead? Thanks, Carey

    I just discovered (a few weeks ago to be honest) that since the Froyo update, the stock email app now allows for a different signature for each eamil account you have.

    Regards.

    K9 Mail is great. I switched after the regular program on my motodroid would delete the email and stop retrieving, k9 mail is the way to go.

    for texting I use handcent.

    I'm just too busy to be downloading several apps a day. Does the forum answer the simple question how to put a simple email signature on my emails from my phone to my droid bionic? Not every single gmail I use.

    This Droid is a productivity killer. I know there is a learning curve, but for someone that just needed emails and texts and simples task, appointment and memos lists this has been a HUGE disappointment. It's more a toy than something I can use for work. And the fact that you need an app for everything makes me wish I got an Iphone. And the fact that these android forums have twenty responses of "don't you love your droid" before finding a half-garbled semi-answer to a simple question is annoying too. How do i put a simple email signature on my Droid Bionic?

    I don't even like the stock email app, so since I use yahoo and gmail, I downloaded the app for each one, and they let me use a signature.
