    When new email messages are composed using different accounts, you automatically get the email signature for each of these accounts as you had configured in the Settings. If you see a signature that was not intended for the account you are using to send the email, you can follow the procedure mentioned above and change the signature for that email account. Even if you are not comfortable with this new custom setting that you have just enabled, you can simply go back to single signature option for all emails by switching to “All Accounts” in the signature settings.

The feature allows you to quickly add some text, phrases or sentences that you use commonly. It turns out to be quite handy when you have to use some text that you can’t use as signature and only have to enter in few specific emails.
