An email signature is information at the bottom of the message that the program adds automatically every time you send an email. This information is usually your name and contact data, but you can put anything that you wish to include, such as a smiley face and a quote. The various email programs provide this service although the methods of access differ slightly.

Open your email account. Popular free email providers include Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail (see Resources).
Proceed to the "Signature" page. The path to this page will vary based on the service provider. For instance, to arrive at the signature page in Yahoo email, you must click "Options" and then select "Signature," while in Gmail all you have to do is click "Settings" at the top of the screen.
Type the smiley abbreviation you wish to sign off with, as well as the quote, into the text area. Many websites provide lists of smiley face abbreviations as well as their graphical representations. These sites include Gmail, Yahoo! and MSN (see Resources).
Save the changes. The application will include your signature at the bottom of every message you create. If you do not wish to include it in some messages, you can delete it while you are composing the message.
