How to create HTML email signatures in iOS

By , Jun 7, 2013

HTML Signature 3About a month ago, we had a general iOS how-to guide for setting up multiple email signatures on your iPhone or iPad. One of our readers suggested adding a how-to guide for creating HTML signatures as well. We aim to please.

If you have multiple websites that you would like to include in your email signature line, you can add them, including a working link, by following a few simple steps…

Step 1: Send yourself an email from your computer using an account that already has the HTML rich signatures included with it. For example, if your Outlook email or Gmail account already includes the links you want in your signature line, send yourself an email directly from that service.

Step 2: On your iOS device, open the email that you just sent to yourself. Copy the entire signature line, including your HTML links.

Step 3: Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Signatures

Step 4: Select the email account you would like to add the new signature to and tap the text box. Then select “Paste” to paste it into the box.

Once the new HTML signature is added, it will show up in every email that you send. Now, you can include your Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Instagram, or whatever social networking links you’d like.

    This used to be possible in iOS 5 only via Mail Enhancer; now most of the functionalities are embedded natively but I still use if because of the swipe left to mark as Read/Unread mainly, even though there’s more in there worth the tweak.
    Nice one, Lori. ;)

    Thank you, but I think this is already adopted by many users. The real question we need an answer is how to embed in iOS mail colored letters, stuff or an image. For example, a logo or I want one sentence line to be gray or light green, which of course these flawlessly work in OsX. Help..
