How do email signatures work with Gmail Delegated Accounts
Gmail Delegated Accounts are useful for people who need to let other users access their email accounts. An example case would be setting up a Gmail Delegated Account for a Director of a company and for the Director's Secretary or Personal Assistant.
You can setup the Personal Assistant with access to the Director's email accounts, while still being logged into the Personal Assistant's own Gmail account. They can read all emails in the inbox and they can send emails on behalf of the Director.
Need a new email signature for Gmail?
But what happens with the email signatures for these accounts?
In our example above, the Director has given access to his Gmail email account to the Personal Assistant under a Delegated Account arrangement. When the Personal Assistant logs into his/her own account in Gmail, they can swap over to the Director's email account at any time, by clicking the round photo icon in the top right-hand corner and choosing the delegated account profile.
Now when the Assistant is in the Director's email account, any emails that he/she sends on behalf of the Director, uses the Director's email signature, just as if the Director were sending it themselves.
