    I have no idea what FLMI, JD, or SIPC are, but I work with people (from the business) who use them in their signatures.

    No not everyone is going to know exactly what your achievement means. If they don't, they probably don't matter in your career ladder. And they will probably just believe that it is some technology thing and assume you know your stuff.

    You don't want to get too carried away with the number of certifications. Only place the most relevant or most prestigious ones. In my opionon any more than 2 would be pushing it and I'd never do more than 3.

    I agree with chrisone. If you are in consulting or something like that and are emailing clients/customers, then restricting it to professional higher end certs is best. You are showing the customer that you are trained/certified which is obviously a good thing to advertise to them.
    Outside of scenarios like that, showing your credentials just seems pointless to me.

    I was just giving a co-worker some crap about this the other day. I got an e-mail from him, and he had his certs listed in it. He said he thought he had turned that off. He said at his last job he was required to do it. Since he worked for a consulting firm I can understand that. However this is a hospital, so it seemed kinda lame to do it here.

    The only thing I've ever put my certs down on, other than my resume, is technical papers that I've authored.

    I think outside of working in the consulting world, there's no reason to list them in your e-mail signature.
