This tool will allow you to create an OBU-branded signature for your University email account. Please read these instructions before using the tool.
The signature tool setup must be done on a desktop or laptop computer. The tool will not work on mobile or tablet devices.
- Use the link at the bottom of this page to open up the signature tool. Use the options on the left side of the page to customize your signature.
- When complete, follow the instructions at the top of the preview panel to copy your signature.
- Open your email app and create a new signature. Paste in the copied signature into the editor and save your changes. Specific instructions will vary from app to app. For Outlook on the web:
- After logging in, click the gear icon at the top-right and search for “signature.” Find and select Email signature.
- In the email signature editor, paste your newly-created OBU signature. It should look identical to what you saw in the signature tool's preview panel. If it does not show up correctly, ensure you are using a supported browser to create and save your signature. (See below for more details.)
- After pasting in your new signature, click Save.
- This tool has been tested and will work in the most recent versions of Chrome, Safari and Edge. Firefox will not work properly with the signature tool and is not a supported browser for setup purposes only.
- If you use Firefox to access your OBU email, you must use a different browser to set up and save your signature. Once that is done, you may return to Firefox to use the signature in your emails.
- This tool is specifically designed to create signatures for use in Outlook on the web and Outlook's Windows and macOS apps. While many other apps will work with these signatures, we cannot offer assistance with any issues that arise from using other apps.
- The signatures will still display correctly to anyone receiving your emails, no matter the app they use.
- If you paste your signature into an email app and it does not look identical to what you previewed in the signature tool, please do not use it. This includes fonts, font colors, text size and the spacing between lines of text.
