Update 7/9/2010: It seems Google themselves have entered the fray. Check it out!
I have many email accounts. One is Google Apps for the day job and I keep that one totally separate from the rest of my accounts. However, I also have a few personal Gmail accounts, the Solo Technology Google Apps addresses and few more for clients and side engagements and keeping up with them all is quite easy since I have them all pulled into my Solo Tech account. That part works well.
What doesn’t work so well, however, is the fact that with Google Mail you only have one signature (the bit you append to the footer of your messages) regardless of what account is being used.
In an ideal world, I’d have a [custom] signature to match each email account that I can use for sending messages.
I don’t really need friends & family getting a “corporate” sig and I’d like the sig for my client’s accounts to match what they use.
I thought I found the answer earlier this week when I learned about WiseStamp. At first glance, this seemed to be exactly what I had been looking for but once I started trying it out I became a bit disappointed.
First issue? You can only configure two signatures. Ideally, I’d like 4.
Second issue? There doesn’t appear to be a reasonably straight-forward method to sync signatures between machines or browsers (there currently is support for Firefox and Chrome browsers). That’s a deal-breaker.
Now don’t get me wrong, if you don’t need a bunch of signatures and replicating settings between machines isn’t a big deal then you want to be trying out WiseStamp. I haven’t seen an easier way to do a nicely formatted sig with Gmail yet and it is very easy to work with. The price is right, too! (free)
Lots of nice little features too. You can easily add images, links or icons to your social networks, and even recent blog posts (or other items from RSS feeds). Really quite slick. Sadly, I need more.
Any ideas on similar products that I should be trying?
