    When my "new hotness" arrives on Friday, one of the first things I'm going to do is disable the "Sent from my iPad" signature. Does anyone else find that whole "sent from my iPhone"/"sent from my DroidX"/"blah blah blah" thing annoying?

    Sent from my Macbook Pro (Mid-2009 Model).

    Are you asking how to or merely expressing your disdain for the signature?

    It doesn't bother me in the slightest. Infact I quite like it and think its pretty cool. I can't imagine why anyone else wouldn't.

    I dont really care and can not be bothered to change it.
    You should see what Blackberry's who use rogers service..
    "Sent from my Blackberry on Rogers Wireless Network service... Call 1800xxxxx for a discount"
    not even kidding.

    Just go to Settings --> Mail, Contacts, Calendars --> Mail (section) --> Signature to change the sig on your e-mails. It's pretty simple. I'm still annoyed I can integrate my QR on the iPad.

    This feature has been in place for most mobile devices since the day of RIM's Blackberry. In IT we used this to know that someone was mobile and wouldn't be able to do long email or major attachments until they were on their desktop/laptop. But as most have pointed out it's an easy thing to turn off. Or just ignore it.

    Expressing my disdain, and asking if anyone shares that disdain. I can figure such things out on my own. :)

    Thanks for including the info for others, though!

    If it doesn't say "Sent from THE NEW IPAD" I'm not interested.

    No. The whole point is to tell people the device you're sending from.

    For example, when i'm away from my desk I reply to work-related emails from my iPhone. Having the "Sent from my iPhone" signature hints to the recipient that i'm not at my desk (or otherwise i'd have sent from my Mac) and that i'm out and about. It also offers up some reassurance that you can spell if autocorrect messes with your message.

    Speaking of signatures, it'd be nice being able to send different signatures from different accounts.

    With 4 different mailboxes on my iPhone/iPad, but the same ol' signature being churned out. I've removed it.

    I would also make sure to add that it's 4G LTE so that no one thinks you scrimped and went with wifi-only.

    The main reason I still use 'Sent from my mobile'.

    I can see this. I don't have a problem with a "sent from my mobile device" kind of note. The other just seems so self-congratulatory. "I'm on an iPhone", "I'm on an Android", "I'm so much better than you"....

    It's a tablet computer--a tool. I don't think early humans scrawled "Scrawled by sharpened rock" after every cave drawing....

    Actually, it doesn't bother me so much as look unprofessional. I use my iPad a lot for answering business emails, and the last thing I want a customer to see is that tag, which kind of looks like an excuse for it to look not quite "business-like"

    I think my next email signature will in fact be "Scrawled by sharpened rock" :p

    I have "sent from my iPhone" as the sig on my mail program on my computer. That way I have an excuse for my typos and curtness.

    Just my name and the company I own on my signature.

    Some here will like the iPad signature thing as they post their entire electronic inventory in their signature here :p

    I change it to "sent from my mobile"

    Heads off the occasional thin-skinned colleague or client from getting upset when they get a short/terse/to-the-point email/response.

    They don't need to know what brand or kind of mobile I'm using, Apple can pay for their own marketing. However it *has* proven helpful to emphasize that I'm not sitting at my laptop.

    What I find really annoying on this forum is the people with the paragraph above their post on where it was sent from.

    I have mine with just my name. Keyboard shortcut for my Company when it applies. I really hope that Apple will address this in iOS6. They are getting into the cooperate arena pretty heavy now and having the ability to have multiple signatures should be top priority. IMO. On another note, they need to steal from Mail Enhancer. Being able to view multiple inboxes is great but without the "unread" function it's hindering at times.
