    You do have some good suggestions. However, if you include your email / phone in the signature, it is important to put them in as images – otherwise you run the risk of being spammed to death because someone carelessly forwarded your email.

      Hi Anders,

      I guess if someone wanted to be extra cautious they could do that, but this may cause issues when the recipient’s email/web client blocks images (which often happens – see this article).

      Best regards,
      Adam

    Am I allowed to include my company name in my personal email signature? My company says it is a misuse of company resources and that I am acting as an unapproved agent of the company.

      Hi Jordan,
      Your company is right. Including their name in a signature automatically suggests that you represent this organization, which should not be the case in your personal emails. If anyone could allow you to do that, it is your company, and you already have their statement on the matter.
