    Windows Mail Default Signature

    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to disable the 'sent from windows mail' signature on my emails. From my gmail account I have done this flawlessly through the account settings, toggling signature to off. However, for my other account, the option to remove the signature has been disabled. I believe it is because it is the account linked with my microsoft login, and therefore integral to Windows 8. At the bottom it says (paraphrased) 'This is the microsoft account you use to login to windows, to change this account, you must go to 'change pc settings'

    Whilst I can find 'change pc settings' in the Windows 8 menu, there is no option to remove email signature here from what I can see.

    Please help me remove this damned signature

    Thank you

    Thank you, but this does not seem to work for my email as it is the 'windows login email'

    To disable the default Mail signature:

    1. Open Mail app.
    2. Bring up the charms bar (Win+C) and select settings.
    3. Choose Accounts.
    4. Select your email address.
    5. Click on Use an email signature to turn it off

    Hope this helped.
