Add a signature with multiple lines of text to the email messages that a user sends from a device

If you want to add a signature that contains multiple lines of text to the email messages that a user sends from a BlackBerry device, you must use the caret (^) character to escape double-quotes and to insert line breaks into the signature text.
  1. On the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool, on the taskbar, click Start > All Programs > BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit > BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool Client > BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool.
  2. Type besuseradminclient <credentials> -change -u <user_name> -b <server_name> -autosignature ^"<first_line_of_signature>^. For example, besuseradminclient -username admin -password password -change -u jpalmer@test.rim.net -b server1 -autosignature ^"Regards,^.
  3. Press ENTER.
  4. The tool prompts you with More? To insert a line break in the signature text, press ENTER.
  5. The tool prompts you with More? again. Perform one of the following actions:
    • If you want the signature to end after the next line of text, type <next_line_of_signature>^", then press ENTER. For example, Julie Palmer^".
    • If you want the signature to have more lines of text after the next line, type <next_line_of_signature>^, then press ENTER.
  6. If necessary, repeat steps 3 to 5 until you complete the signature.

Example

Use the command below to add the following signature to the email messages that Julie Palmer sends from her device:

Regards,
Julie Palmer
