Re: Which is why I always turn off email sigs...

I work as a contractor but permanently based at one client facility. The client **REQUIRES** a certain email signature format, on all messages, including replies and internal email:

Name, title, a note that I'm a contractor for $myEmployer not an employee of the client, client company name, address, email (like you couldn't get it from the "from" line!), phone number, client company website, links to client company social media pages, and finally the client company logo.

I wish I was allowed to turn it off, at least for INTERNAL emails, or use the much-abbreviated one I had before the requirement came through. The email content is frequently shorter than the signature.

And then there's the auto-applied-by-the-server legal disclaimer for outgoing external email...
