  2. Great post! Very helpful – Thanks you :)

  3. For signature i use Brandmymail ( http://www.brandmymail.com ), which has full control over email signature and overall template :)

  4. ALWAYS avoid disclaimers and copyright information! Those who include them with their emails do not understand existing copyright laws or existing privacy technologies. Plenty of lawyers have come out and shown how they likely won’t hold up in a court of law, and it’s the existing laws that will one will be held accountable for. If you include them in your signature, I hope you’re able to back it up, because I know many who will take you to task on it.

  5. Don’t discount disclaimers – they’re used by some of the biggest companies in the world.

    I agree they’re unsightly but you can get around that by designing your signature a little deviously.

    Anyway, found the article below in the same search – I wonder what everyone else thinks.
