Sender information

Changing names

You can change the name that is displayed in the From field next to your address. Go to Settings → Personal information, signature, picture, enter a new value in the Your name section, and save changes.

Note. Only your displayed name will change. Your Yandex username will remain the same.

Signature

Restriction. If your organization's administrator has set a mandatory signature, your personal signature will not be displayed.

Create a signature

You can create one or more signatures that will be automatically inserted in the message when it is created, replied, or forwarded. To do this, open the menu Settings → Personal data, signature, picture and enter the signature text in the Your signatures section. You can also format your signature text using the toolbar located above the text box.

You can add an image to your signature in one of the following ways:

Embed a URL
Click above the text box and enter a direct link to the image.
Upload an image from your computer
Drag an image from a folder on your computer into the signature box.
Restriction. The picture in your signature will only be displayed when formatting is enabled for the email.

When the signature is ready, click Add signature.

Edit signature

  1. Move your cursor over the upper right corner of your signature.
  2. Click on the icon that appears.

Customize signature

You can set where to place your signature in responses or designate it for a particular address or language of the text. If you have several signatures, you can select one on the page where you compose emails.

Assign to specific email address

To use a signature when sending messages from a specific mail alias, select the option Link to address and choose the email address.

Placement in responses

By default, the signature is placed at the end of the message or conversation. If you would like to place it immediately after your reply, choose the option under Place signature.

Note. This option can be applied across the board to all the signatures you have created.
Designate signature by email language

The system detects the language of the signatures that have been added. For example, if you are responding to an email in Turkish, your Turkish signature can be added automatically. To use this signature in replies to messages in another language, assign it to that language:

  1. Move your cursor over the upper right corner of your signature.
  2. Click on the icon that appears.
  3. Select the language needed from the list.

    .

  4. Click Save.

  1. Move the cursor to the current signature.
  2. Click the button that appears (to the left of the signature).
  3. Choose a signature.

Delete a signature

  1. Move your cursor over the upper right corner of your signature.
  2. Click on the icon that appears.

The signature is not displayed

If you created a signature, but it is not displayed correctly when writing an email (the signature format or hyperlinks are incorrect or pictures are not displayed), make sure that email formatting is enabled:

  1. Before typing the text of your message, click Add formatting (to the right of the input box).
  2. Refresh the page (press F5).

If you notice that the signature does not display after you've written the message, add it manually.

Social network profiles of the sender

If you have social network profiles, the recipients of your emails will see them under the From field.

Note. Social network profile images are only supported by Yandex.Mail. If your message recipient uses a different mail service, they won't see your profile in the message header.

How can I delete links to my profiles in social networks?

Mail uses information from open sources to search for profiles, for example, Facebook, LinkedIn, “Moy Krug”, “Odnoklassniki”, “Moy Mir” social services and other sites that support the ability to search images and user profiles with email addresses.

If you want to restrict searches that use your profile information, you can change settings on the social sites or Yandex, and links to the profiles will cease to appear within seven days.

Facebook

Go to Privacy in account settings. Select Do you want other search engines to link to your timeline? and click Edit. Uncheck Do you want other search engines to link to your timeline? and click Confirm.

Odnoklassniki

Go to the Privacy page in your account settings. In the Open page for search engines and mail services section, select No and save your changes.

Moy Krug

Go to Privacy in account settings. In the Show my profile section, select only Moy Krug users and save your changes.

Yandex settings

You can prevent Yandex.Mail from displaying profiles that have been found. Go to the social.yandex.com page from your Yandex account. If you would like to prevent other mail services from searching your profile using the linked email address, use your social network profile for authorization.

If your profile in a social network is not linked to your Yandex account yet, click the icon of that social network, enter your username, and allow “Yandex.Passport” to access the profile. The action confirms that you are the profile owner.

If your social network profile is already linked to your Yandex account, disable the Mail option in the Privacy settings section.

Attention. The profile from the social.yandex.com list cannot be deleted after saving the configuration because the settings will be canceled.
