What is the best way to manage digital signatures in an email?
There are two types of digital signatures that may be applied to email. One is an encryption or digital seal, and the other is a scanned image of an actual signature.
When dealing with encrypted email it is best to save the email to a recordkeeping system once the email has been unencrypted. If the email contains a scanned copy of a signature, ensure that the signature can be seen once registered into a recordkeeping system. If the signature can not be seen, it is recommended to print the email and maintain a paper or scanned version which shows the image of the signature.
