Basically an email signature is used to give your recipient with your name, email id and contact information. It’s also used as a closing statement like a funny message or something to end your email.
Outlook settings allow you to use email signatures for your outgoing emails. Since we use Outlook so frequently, losing the Outlook files will be really a bad thing to happen.
