Social Media links and your email Signature
You can create personalized signatures for your email messages that include an icon for Facebook, Twitter, or other social media sites. When the message recipient clicks the icon in the signature, a new web browser window opens and your social media account appears.
Your signature can automatically be added to outgoing messages, or you can manually add the signature to only the messages that you choose.
