Setting Signatures within Mail

by Eric Wyatt
(last updated September 3, 2018)

Often when using email, it is helpful to add an email signature. An email signature is a block of information added to the bottom of any outgoing email. Typically email signatures are setup to provide information that the sender believes the recipient will benefit from having. In Mail adding an email signature is a simple process.
  1. With the Mail app open, click the Settings icon (it looks like a small gear) in the left-most column. The Mail app displays the Settings menu on the right side of the Mail app.
  2. Click on Signature in the Settings Menu. Mail displays the Email Signature window. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. Mail app Email Signature window with default signature.

  4. Specify which account you want the signature used for. (This only has bearing if you are using multiple email accounts. If you want the signature used for all of your multiple accounts, then you can click the Apply to All Accounts check box.)
  5. Enter the information you want to include in your email signature. (See Figure 2.)

  7. Click Save.

Email signatures can include HTML elements, such as hyperlinks, formatting, and images. If you need to, you can use another program or online resource to create your email signature. If you use another program or online service, you can copy the information and paste it into the Email Signature window.
