    First, Welcome to the forums. Are you using the stock email app or a replacement app? And if it is a replacement app, which one?

    I believe you can set a signature on a new message but not replies. At least that's how it appears to work on my Motorola Droid 1. But I believe there are email apps in the Market with the signature feature.

    I don't think rooting will affect the stock mail client at all (well, I suppose it might allow you to tinker with the app itself if you're a developer). I'm actually using Improved Mail from the Market because I needed Exchange security policy support with 2.2, but it has the same problem with reply signatures. I know there are other mail apps in the Market but I'm content (quite happy really) with Improved Mail.

    Be Seeing You.

    I may need to look into other email apps. i also use the exchange for work and it has some issues, I have to power off the phone to receive email sometimes and the whole reply with signatures is a PITA.

    The signature function of the Droid2 stock email app works great for both original messages and replies.

    From your mailbox, go to Menu--> Email Settings --> Compose Options and you will see the standard "Sent from Droid via Verizon Wireless" sig, which you can change to anything you want.

    I have a Droid 1 so this does not help? I wish there was an answer for this problem as I reply more than send from my phone?

    The stock e-mail client is just bojangles...You cannot have a sig on replies. A while ago the client was hacked to do this with 2.1 (which had no sig support at all). I think this is part of BB's patents and thus not available. That is the reason they still dominate on exchange support.

    I am still looking to see if an app would fix this bug or if I rooted would help? If the Droid 2 can do it maybe there is a fix?

    I think touchdown will do it. It's a bit pricey - $20 in the market. I just keep my sig in a note and copy it and paste it into an e-mail before I send it.

    Just download a note app (evernote, quicknotes, whatever) and make a note of your signature. You can then copy that text and leave it in your clipboard to paste.

    I have a new (2 days old) DroidX and have a connection to the corp exchange server. I changed my signature on the phone and it does appear on the replies i send. Or am i misunderstanding you?

    Try "Improved Email" from android market.....its built on the same native android email platform but has additional features like forward / reply signatures. You can also set colors to different email accounts. Works pretty good on my droid1.

    I went ahead and deleted my stock android email.apk using RootExplorer, rebooted phone, searched and installed Improved Email from market, moved it from /data/app-private to system/app, set permissions to rw-r--r-- (or run fix permissions via Rom Manager), reboot phone and then set up email.

    Hope this helps...I was frustrated with sometimes losing the email push connectivity of the stock email.apk and also having no forward/ reply signature for my work's exchange email.
