    If you are working in a corporate environment or your workplace runs on BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) and you want to change or create a new signature for your email, this guide will help you. There are two ways to accomplish the same goal. One method is to directly change it through your handset and another is using the RIM Blackberry desktop manager software supplied with your Blackberry Smartphone. Before you get started with the methods given below, make sure your phone is set to use Auto Signatures. To do so enable the Use Auto Signature option present in your messaging settings page.
