Overusing Your E-Mail Signature

So you go on and create an appropriate and professional signature at work that ahs your name, title, address, any social media links and any kind of policy you might need to add.  Then comes the question, do you leave the signature on in every single e-mail you send out? 

I read an article a while back that stated that you definitely do not need to leave your signature on all the time, especially when you are emailing people you work with.  A) people know who you are, what you do, and the address B) leaving the signature on all the time might make it seem like you are full of yourself.

Now I don’t necessarily believe in point B but it is annoying sometimes especially when some people have made their signature so large that you have to scroll.  I do however believe in point A.  I try to just put my name when e-mailing colleagues, although there have been occasions when I’ve been asked to leave the signature on just so people who are on the road have all of my contact info in front of them.

What do you think about this?
