This video will show how to move the Gmail E-mail reply signature before the quoted text when replying to an e-mail someone has sent you. Many people complained to Google regarding this issue but Google didn’t budge. Instead, they relied on a third party to develop a workaround for this. The problem? It’s buried within the settings of the Google Gmail service and without being told about it or specifically hunting for it – most people will not realize it is there.
Now many of you might not think this is a bad thing. When Google appends your signature to the end of a reply it actually gets re-appended multiple times to the end of every response. So if you are having a conversation with someone, they get four maybe five signatures attached to the bottom of each response. This can also cause your e-mail responses to get caught in their spam filters if you have multiple links in your signature.
E-mail signatures have become a standard for most people in business and managing that signature has become cumbersome with some e-mail clients. Google Gmail offers a great way for customizing your signature including how it looks, feels and is displayed. Unfortunately, Google falls short on giving the user options for when and how the signature is displayed on outgoing messages when sending e-mails to clients.
The most flexible aspect of the Google signature is that Gmail allows you to customize a signature for each outgoing e-mail address you have configured on your Gmail client. In the settings tab of your Gmail client you can configure additional e-mail addresses to send from and also establish an outgoing signature for each e-mail.
