How To Video: Change the e-mail signature on an iPad

1:06 /

Learn how to delete the "sent from my iPad" e-mail signature on the Apple iPad, and replace it with your own.

>> Donald Bell: Hey I'm Donald Bell for CNET.com and today I'm gonna show you how to change the email signature on your iPad. ^M00:00:05 [ Music ] ^M00:00:14 Out of the box when you set up email on an iPad, Apple imposes their own email signature on your outgoing messages: Sent from my iPad. It's cute for a few days but eventually you feel like Apple should be paying you royalties for marketing their product. If you prefer to send email without flaunting your iPad ownership here's how to do it. Dive into settings and select mail, contacts, calendars from the sidebar. Tap the option for signature, clear it and either leave it blank or put in something useful. That's it! Now you can hit the home button, launch email and any new email you compose will have your new signature. It's also worth noting that the same technique also works on the iPhone or iPod Touch. So there you go, that's how you can change the email signature on an iPad. For CNET.com I'm Donald Bell. ^M00:01:02 [ Music ]
