Login to Your College Gmail Account

To set an email signature in Gmail in Safari, Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer you must first login to Gmail. See the instructions in the BCC online Tutorials at  http://tutorials.baysidecc.vic.edu.au/m/2038/l/17774-login-to-google-apps for detailed instructions on logging into your College email account in a web browser.

Click on the Gmail User Preferences Icon

Click on the gear icon on the upper right-hand side of the Gmail window to access email Settings.

Access Gmail Settings

Click the "Settings" option in the drop down menu that appears in preferences.

Scroll to "Signature" settings

In the "General" tab of Settings, scroll down in the window until you see the "Signature" options.

Select "Signature" option button

Click the option button below the "No Signature" button to enable the addition of a signature.

Add email signature with privacy policy

Using either the Safari or Firefox browsers, copy and paste all of the text below the dotted line into the Signature box in Gmail. Do NOT use Chrome or IE when doing the copy and paste steps below or you will almost certainly end up with formatting issues in your email signature.

Edit the name, title, phone number, and email information with your details. If the signature does not appear to copy properly or loses the formatting in any way, please ask for assistance from the ICT Department to help correct this.
