You can include a signature in your emails that includes your name, address, phone, and email address to make it easy for recipients to reach you. The signature will automatically be added at the end of Google Mail messages you send.

  2. At the top right, click the settings icon shaped like a gear.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Scroll down to the "Signature" section and enter your new signature text in the box.
  5. Optional: Format your text using the buttons above the text box.
  6. Optional*  Select the checkbox next to "Insert this signature before quoted text in replies and remove the "--" line that precedes it" to include your signature with visible body of your message.
