For the first time yesterday, I responded to an email from my Blackberry. I have the feature turned on where it copies the original message in my response. So here is what my email looked like:

Nothing much to update. It was a slow day. There was no deposit today. The email that Anne Marie sent you is fully up to date.

I was unable to use a phone in Panama today, and tomorrow we will be at sea, arriving in th Cayman Islands on Thuirsday morning. Can you give me an update?

The bolded "Eric" at the bottom is my autosignature. The part in ittalics is the original email. It puts my autosignature at the bottom of the original email instead of at the bottom of my email, so it looks like its part of the original message. This is not usable like this, so I will have to stop using the autosignature and just type my own each time. While this is no big deal for me since I do not write many emails from my Blackberry (this is only my 3rd one in 3 weeks), I would imagine this to be an annoyance for many people.

Mine does the same thing! Whenever I respond to an email to my gMail account, which I forward to my BB address, it sticks the signature all the way at the bottom. Luckily it's not my primary email address, because that really annoys me.

I think I have a workaround solution that is "acceptable". I put a dotted line as the first line in my signature, so my signature looks like this:

-----

Eric

Now that dotted line seperates my signature from the original email. And if I am not responsing to an email and just writing an email from scratch, then the dotted line does not cause any harm.

The auto signature will always put itself on the bottom of the outgoing email...whether it's a reply, a reply to a reply, or a new message...it always tags it onto the bottom.

Most people use the dashes for a line option to split it up.

Best solution is to create an AutoText Signature.
whenever I type sig1 is puts my work signature, sig 2, abbreviated signature, etc.
