Why Should I Add Signatures in Roundcube?
Email signatures help you share your contact information with people you correspond with digitally so they know how to reach you. However, an email signature can also do so much more than just share your name, address, and phone number with people. In fact, it can give them an insight into who you are and what you look like.
Unlike most other email clients, you have a lot of control over formatting and images when you add a signature in Roundcube. In fact, Roundcube supports full HTML, giving you endless options in terms of design.
How to Create a Signature In Roundcube Webmail
Most people want their email signatures to look professional and crisp. However, most email clients do not give you a lot of tools to create and format your email signature, and Roundcube is no different. Therefore, the easiest way to do this is by either formatting your signature elsewhere and pasting it into the signature box.
Many people aren’t sure how to set up a signature in Roundcube webmail. Luckily, Roundcube Webmail gives you the option to paste HTML coding or preformatted text. In other words, you can use one of the three following methods for how setting up a signature in Roundcube webmail.
Option 1: Make Your Own Roundcube HTML Signature
Since Roundcube fully supports HTML formatting, you can make your own Roundcube HTML signature. This would simply require you to type up all of the source code, which you can do in a program like Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac).
However, unless you are an HTML wiz, this method is very time-consuming and frustrating. Furthermore, it can be hard to code things like images, logos, and hyperlinks. If that doesn’t sound fun to you, then we recommend you look at the other two options.
Option 2: Make a Roundcube Email Signature With an Email Signature Generator
If you like the idea of a Roundcube html signature but don’t know enough about the language to create your own, that’s okay. You can simply use an email signature generator to create a fully customized design and then add the signature in Roundcube.
A simple web search will provide you with dozens of free options to create a custom HTML design. However, some great options for email signature generators include WiseStamp, Newoldstamp, and LetsSignIt.
Many of these generators provide you with Roundcube signature templates you can simply create, then copy and paste into your Webmail signature box.
If you use this method, just make sure you can get the source code and use the code tool when you go to paste it into Webmail.
Option 3: Make a Roundcube Signature Template with a Word Processor
Finally, if you don’t want to deal with any sort of code, you can always just use a word processor like Microsoft Word or Google Docs to make your Roundcube email signature.
This is a great option if you want a basic signature but would like some flexibility in terms of colors, fonts, or other aspects of the design. If you are worried about spacing, you can use a table to format everything and keep the text aligned well. You can also find some preset templates online to help you with some aspects of the formatting.
Since this approach isn't coded, though, you'll need to convert it. Luckily, there are many free conversion sites to help you transform your rich text signature into HTML, such as WordToHTML.
