Gmail (Google Mail) is the leader of the free email service since it’s launch. With robust filters, labels, and a 15GB space for sharing between many Google services.

With dozens of email services, Gmail is the one on top, and it might keep it’s a gold medal for a good while. Gmail made us rethink how an email account works, and it’s revolutionary in its field. In May 2015, Gmail had more than 900 million users.

First, you need to login to your email account and go to setting. From all of them, Gmail has an easier process. This is probably why many people love it. You can see an example below:

Gmail settings area

In the settings, click on the General tab, if it’s not selected, and go to the Signature section, which is probably at the end of the page. This is where you need to paste (Ctrl+V) the email signature copied from Bybrand.

Possible issues you may encounter in Gmail

Here we’ll write a few issues you might find when pasting your email signature onto Gmail.

My email signature doesn’t load images

If this occurs if, while pasting your email signature, your email is enabled to have the composer in plain text. You should disable this option, which is very simple, see below.

Create a new message and unmark the “Plain text mode” option. Now you’ll be able to see your email signature with images!

My email signature is very long

In some cases, Gmail says that the HTML email signature is too long or has too much information. This is a known issue with Gmail and can usually be fixed with these two options:

  1. Changing the internet browser;
  2. Logout and login again;
  3. Using Bybrand’s Gmail integration;

The problem is not the signature’s information, but, if either of the two options fix it, please try the third: Bybrand’s native Gmail integration.
