An email signature, or signature block, is a block of text appended to the end of an email communication which usually contains the sender’s contact information (such as address, phone number, and social media contacts) as well as other information such as quotations, legal disclaimers, and other material.
Email signatures are most commonly used in professional settings and have largely fallen out of favor in personal email accounts. Typically, in personal emails there is only a signature line comprised of the sender’s name or nickname (e.g. John or Maggie) to indicate the end of the message.
