What is an email signature?


Email signatures are used to display your name and contact information.

The signature is automatically inserted, usually at the end of the email.

Using an email signature can save you time when you send an email to someone.  Now lets go into the details…

Clicking the icon in our WWD Toolkit Page will bring you to the below login screen where you have the option to access Webmail using HordeRoundCube or SquirrelMail. 

They may look different but they all have the same core features; email forwarding, replying, address book, folders, junk, spam and so on).

Pick the Webmail application you prefer to use, but to recognised, that we do recommend if possible you use Gmail or Outlook for your email and set up your Wow Web Design email account to forward all emails to your additional account.  This assists for keeping up to date backups.
