Emails and email signatures

Our emails and email signatures are clear and simple. Find out how to use them.

Emails

Emails should be sent on a plain white background, preferably in Arial so as to be consistent with our other communications.

Use the instructions below to change your email template.

Emails can be sent to our external audiences using our CRM software. A number of HTML email templates are available – depending on audience and message.

Advice on sending emails is available from the Marketing and Student Recruitment team for student recruitment focussed emails and the Communications team for all others. Contact masr@essex.ac.uk or comms@essex.ac.uk accordingly.

See examples of our HTML email templates.

Email signatures

The University has created a number of email signature templates which include a collection of visual elements and logos that highlight institution-wide awards for our external audiences.

All staff must use one of the approved templates – no other logos or promotional messaging are permitted.
