Do "YOU" use an email signature at work?

Do you use an unnecessarily huge signature on every email reply at work? Or do you meter your signature responses, and have different signatures for different occasions?

I notice a lot of people include a signature on EVERY SINGLE EMAIL. Sometimes even after a simple reply like "Yes", and then:

---
John Doe | Big Corporate Company | Confusing Job Title | Fake Department |
email: John.Doe@BCC.com | Tel: 206-555-1212 | Fax: 206-555-1213
Cell: 206-555-1214 | 2011 Best Companies to Work For

"Insert annoying philosophical quote here that makes me look like a hypocrit when I send you a passive-aggressive email response."

CAUTION: Unless the word absquatulation has been used in its correct context somewhere other than in this warning, it does not have any legal or grammatical use and may be ignored. No animals were harmed in the transmission of this email, although the kelpie next door is living on borrowed time, let me tell you. Those of you with an overwhelming fear of the unknown will be gratified to learn that there is no hidden message revealed by reading this warning backwards, so just ignore that Alert Notice from Microsoft.

Re: Do "YOU" use an email signature at work?

Yup, but not the "personal" quote.

Company policy for the signatures. It's automatically put on every email.

And the "caution" part is a e-mail received in error statement to delete.

I have one that I use for external emails. Anything sent internally is done so without a signature.

Re: Do "YOU" use an email signature at work?

My favorites are ones where people use random quotes in their emails. I was having a bad day once, and received an email that had a sig that was half page.

Her reply was "Thanks", followed up by 10 minutes of reading bullsh*t on her sig. I let her know that it was a waste and sig is not a blog, it's for basic contact info.

Re: Do "YOU" use an email signature at work?

Yes, but I think it is only set to automatically attach one on original emails that I start. I don't think it attaches to any replies I send. It's a standard form factor that my employer wants us to all use.

Re: Do "YOU" use an email signature at work?

I just have a standard signature, but it is included in all my emails.

Name
Title
Company
Phone Number
Website

I changed the font a little to make it fancy.

That's pretty much the standard signature for my IT company.

It drives me crazy the signatures some of the people at my mortgage company have. Crazy *** cursive writing, big text, purple, Bible verses and other religious stuff, etc. I'm half tempted to implement a standardized signature system.

Re: Do "YOU" use an email signature at work?

I came across a nifty program and set it up on my company's exchange server many years ago and have enjoyed clean, consistent and automatically generated (via active directory fields) email signatures company-wide ever since.

http://www.codetwo.com/exchange-rules-2007/

I also have it set to where only one signature & disclaimer shows up per person per email thread.

Re: Do "YOU" use an email signature at work?

I use one every time I start an email, or the first time I reply.

Neat. I've always wondered how much space is taken up on email servers and in email archives by signatures, quotes, flowery email templates, and .gif attachments of company logos.

That's what I want to do at my mortgage company. However, our Exchange is hosted. My IT company hosts the Exchange, but I don't think our admin is going to install something on our servers just for my company.

I've been looking at this: http://www.sigbuzz.me/ It's done in the cloud and enforced by an Outlook plug-in.

Nope. I only send about 1 email/month that is work related so I don't even have a signature.
