The sidebar opens in the mail and analyzes the letter's content. Then it prompts you to upload the file to the system. Once the file opens, you can start creating your signature. To do this, click the My Signature button to add your signature. Select the signature you want to use from the options provided, or draw a new one. Make it unique and as recognizable as possible.
