Examples of signatures
Your NTNU affiliation must be clearly visible in an acceptable way in all job-related emails. Don't stop with the name of your research group or the department where you work. The recipient of your email may not be familiar with the university. The university's full name should be written out.
By adding a link to your employee page, those you correspond with can easily find information about you and your group.

Use a shorter signature for replies and forwards
You can create as many signatures as you want. Consider setting up a shorter alternate signature that can be used for replies and forwards, particularly for internal correspondence.
