The Mail app in Windows 8 by default provides a signature “Sent from Windows Mail”. If you feel this to be very simple signature and want to change to your liking or you drop it completely, you can always edit it.
From the Windows 8 Start Screen, open the Mail app. Press Windows Key +C to show the Charms bar and click on Settings. Or on a touch enabled device, swipe from the right edge to left to display the Charms bar. Or else, you can also move the mouse to the bottom right corner, to bring up the Charms bar. Or you could also directly go to Charms Settings by pressing Windows Key + I. There are so many ways to bring up the Charms bar!
Now click on Accounts, and if you have set multiple accounts, click on the account whose signature is to be changed. Here the image shows a single account only.
Now you’ll get to see various options.
Edit Mail App signature
Here you can edit ‘Sent from Windows Mail’ signature and type the Signature of your liking. You also have the option of Moving the Slider ‘Use an email signature’ to ‘No’, so as to disable displaying the signature. After making changes, you can close the Settings. The changes are immediate and there’s no Save option as such.
Frequency of downloading new mail
Also apart from this, you also have options when to Download the mail. From the drop-down menu, you can select, As items arrive, 15 Minutes, 30 minutes, hourly or manually.
Time from when to download email from
You can also set the duration, from when to download the email, which is quite useful while setting up. You can select 3 days, 7 days, 2 weeks, last month or Any time.
This will be useful for those who are new to Windows 8 and might be confused where to access the various Mail App settings and options.
