How to Create an Email Signature for AOL Mail

By Techwalla Internet Editor

Creating a signature for the end of your emails gives your messages a personal touch. You can add your name, personal website and maybe even a witty quote that reflects your personality. Or, if you use AOL Mail for your professional account, you can add your name, title, company name and address. It's easy and fun to create a signature for AOL Mail.

Step 1

Open your browser with AOL and log on to your AOL email account. Select "Settings" from the "Menu" taskbar along the top of the screen.

Step 2

Select "Mail Signatures" under the "Communication & Organization" category. A blank box opens that then allows you to create your personal email signature. Click on the "Create" button at the bottom of the box.

Step 3

Type in your signature name in the space provided by the "Create Signature" box that opens after you have clicked "Create."

Step 4

Add your signature in the space below your signature name. Choose your font style and size. Click on the "OK" button after you are satisfied with your AOL email signature.

Step 5

Verify that the "Add this signature to messages sent using AOL Mail on the Web" is checked to add your signature to outgoing AOL messages.

Tips & Warnings

  • Keep your signature to a few lines, if possible.
  • If you're using a link in your signature, copy and paste the link in the "Create Signature" box.
  • Some versions of AOL have an "Authorings" setting under the "Settings" button, which takes you to "Signatures." Then the "Menu" taskbar appears on the right of the screen.
