Plus Addressing is available on Standard Mail. It is enabled on the Plus Addressing tab. This feature allows for some mail filtering without setting up any content filtering. It is mostly used when subscribing to newsletters. For example, if your email address is myname@mydomain.com, when subscribing to a newsletter, instead of putting your actual email address, if you add a plus and a folder number to the username such as myname+newsletters@mydomain.com, then the email will go into a newsletters folder.

A few blank lines at the top of your email signature will keep it from being too close to the body of the email message.

After you have created an email signature, check it carefully for spelling and punctuation errors before putting it to use.
