Dear person emailing me, Email signatures are weird. Seriously. The header of an email already contains your name and email address, but still a lot of people insist in replicating them below the message too. Signatures are often six or seven lines long. I just received an email from someone that contained just one word (‘yes’) but also 20 lines of signature. Now I know that email signatures aren’t melting the poles or crashing the internets. But regardless of that, I still see most of them as waste. Read the full story at The Next Web.
Let’s set some ground rules for email signatures, shall we?
