Set an Email Signature On Kindle Fire HDX

Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX doesn’t include a default device vanity signature for email. Here’s how to set up a different signature for each email account.

Amazon’s latest tablet – Kindle Fire HDX – has a lot of improvements over the first two iterations. Email on the first Kindle Fire and the Fire HD was less than stellar. It was slow and clunky, but on the Kindle Fire HDX it’s improved a lot. If you plan to use your HDX for work and play, you’ll want to use email, and part of that is including a signature. There’s no signature included by default like most phones and tablets. You know the standard “Sent from iPhone” or “Sent from Windows Phone”.

Here’s a look at how to set up unique email signatures for each of your email accounts set up on your Kindle Fire HDX.

Create a Kindle Fire HDX Email Signature

First go to Settings > Applications > Email Contacts, Calendars.

Fire HDX Settings

Then tap the email account you want to create a signature for. It’s worth noting that just like other tablets and smartphones you can add several different email addresses from different accounts.

Next you’ll see different options for that particular account. scroll down a bit and tap Signature.


The onscreen keyboard will come up and you can type in whatever you want to use as a signature. Click OK when you’re done.

Note: I haven’t figured out a way to format the signature yet, but I will keep digging into it. If you’ve found a way of doing it, leave a comment below and tell us about it.

No matter what device it is, usually it comes with a custom vanity signature letting people know what device you sent your email from. It’s just a matter of digging through Settings and finding it and then changing it to something more personal.

    Thanks for the post. I’m curious if there is a way to add a photo to the signature. I have a logo I like to post in my emails with my contact info.

    Thanks so much!
