What Is an Email Signature?
If you are familiar with such antiviruses as Avast or AVG, then you must be familiar with email signatures.
An email signature is a message inserted without your permission saying something like, ‘this email has been sent from a virus-free computer protected by Avast.’
The message may, however, not be sent with every email, making it a bit harder to trace the pattern.
Some people do not like his kind of free advertisement, and would rather have it removed, and have the guarantee that it will not be part of the messages sent via Email.
