Signatures

A signature is an encoded and internal Notes function that prevents a user from masquerading as someone other than herself. To apply a signature to a message, the sender must have a Notes ID and know her password. For example, Jane, a Notes designer, can change her mail memo form to appear with Dorothy's name at the top and in the "from" field. She can send this message out, appearing to be Dorothy. Jane cannot sign the message as Dorothy, however, without knowing Dorothy's password and without having Dorothy's Notes ID. This is why you should protect your password and ID.

When a signature is applied in Notes, you see a message in the status bar that says "Signed by Jane Calabria." This assures you that Jane created this message (unless, of course, Jane was foolish enough to distribute her password and ID to someone else).
