Info

Instead of creating a new signature template from scratch, you can use one of the predefined templates from the Template Library.

Once a new signature is opened in the Editor, you can configure its content using the variety of available options, e.g. set the format, change fonts, insert pictures, tables, hyperlinks, placeholders, etc. Additionally, you can also decide what to do if the signature will already be present in the messages while forwarding or replying to mail and where it should be inserted into the composition (Fig. 4.). These options are available by clicking the ER Pro 2.x - toothed gear button:
