Signature in an email is one of the many ways an individual can personalise their emails before sending them to someone. But, many people around the globe are still not using this feature. However, business owners, freelancers and other self-employed people must use this innovation so that the emails have an essence of their credibility to the receiver. Gmail is now adding support for saving and quickly accessing multiple signatures. This means a user can send emails to different people with different signatures easily and quickly.

Gmail is one of the leading electronic mail websites that enables a user to send or receive mail, chat, etc. Many business owners use this website for formal communication with customers, employees and more. Professional people use signatures as a means to allow the receiver to know where the email came from and the credibility of the sender.

Gmail's new multiple signature feature eases the job of a user by saving their time from manually entering or pasting a closing on every email. One can add several signatures to their email and use it before clicking the 'send' button. The option of choosing the feature is available in the 'Send mail as' option.
