E-mail Signature file

 

The e-mail 'signature' or .sig ('dot sig'), refers to the optional footer text appended to the end of each outward e-mail. Normally, a signature file includes the sender's name, and other contact details e.g. telephone number and Web site address.

It should also contain a disclaimer. Consider the following :

*****************************************************
