Multiple Signatures in Gmail

Categories Emerging Ideas Google 

I love Gmail's ability to send from and check multiple e-mail addresses, it lets me keep all my e-mails at my fingertips in the Gmail interface I've love so much. However, Gmail only allows users to have one signature which gets appended to all outgoing e-mails. Gmail really should have the ability to set up different signatures for each outgoing e-mail address. That way folks like me, who use Gmail to check several e-mail addresses (including a few for various jobs), won't be stuck with the same signature on everything.


Totally agree!

Hear, hear!

I have written a script for the greasemonkey add-on for Firefox that allows you to automatically insert a different HTML signature for each of the email addresses you have set up in your gmail account.

Gmail Multiple HTML Signatures:


  • Works for Compose Mail, Reply, and Forward
  • Support for single or multiple email addresses
  • Create a different signature for each email address you use in your gmail account
  • Signature automatically inserted into message above quoted text
  • Signature is automatically replaced when you change the address you are sending from
  • Easy setup interface

There's now a stand-alone add-on for Firefox that will automatically manage up to four rich HTML signatures for each address you have set up in your Gmail account:
