How to create an email signature in Hotmail

Automatically add personalised text to every email you send

We've already shown you how to access the signature function, which allows the same piece of text to be automatically pasted that the end of every email created, in Google's Gmail. However, Microsoft's rival webmail service, Hotmail, also offer the same function. Here's how to add signatures to any emails you create in Hotmail.

Step one
Login to your Hotmail account and go straight to your inbox. From the options menu in the top right-hand corer, select More Options.

Step two
Under the category marked Writing email, select Personal email signature.

Step three
Click in the box and type the text you want to appear in your signature. Use the drop down menus at the top of the window to change the font, size, colour, alignment or even add links in your signature. When finished press Save and your signature will automatically be added to any emails you send.
