Add Your Current Location to Gmail Signatures Automatically

Posted on: February 11, 2009

Gmail has now given its user a new feature which will generate signature at the end of the message regarding loction of the user. You can now instruct Gmail to automatically add your current geographic location to all your outgoing email messages so that recipients get to know where you are at the moment.

How it is done

Gmail first trace your  IP address and then uses it to determine the city / state / country from where you are writing that email.

How to Add Location in Gmail email Signatures

Step 1: Enable the Location in Signature module from the Lab Settings of your Gmail / Google Apps of Gmail.

Step 2: Open the Setting tab of Gmail and select the check box that says “Append your location to the signature”.

That’s it. Here how the signature would look like on the recipients computer. So instead of saying “Sent from iPhone” or “Sent from BlackBerry”, your email signatures could now says “Sent from New Delhi using iPhone” or something similar.

City detection based on IP addresses may not be 100% accurate but you can always modify the detected value before sending the email.
