iPhone signature guide

Step 1: Create your HTML signature on desktop

Use an email signature that you’ve already created (and is perhaps approved) from your Outlook or other HTML email client. It’s not possible to originate an HTML signature on an iPhone, but it is simple to copy one from an existing signature.

Create a new Outlook signature Thermometer or Gmail signature Thermometer.

Create a new email which contains the signature you’d like to add to your iPhone or iPad.

Send it to an email address which can be read on the iPhone you’re looking to use:

Check your email on your iPhone and you will then see your signature within the email you’ve just sent.

Tap and hold on one of the words within the signature and let go… Choose the “Select All” option to select the signature:

Next, tap “Copy” to copy the signature to your iPhone’s clipboard.

Step 2: Add your email signature to your iPhone’s email account

It’s now time to add this copied signature code to the relevant email accounts within your iPhone. Note this signature could also contain disclaimers, social media icons or any other form of graphic too.

On your iPhone (or iPad), navigate to Settings > Mail 

Scroll down that Mail settings page to the bottom, where you’ll find the signature area (shown below).

It will likely show the default signature. Give it a tap.

Once there, if you have multiple email accounts set up on your iPhone (which I do), you’ll then need to decide, which account should have the signature you’ve just copied to the clipboard. If you’d like it for All Account – leave that ticked …

Next, tap and hold the default signature… let go and tap “Select All“.

Next, once the whole of the default signature is highlighted, tap “Paste“, to overwrite the new HTML signature into the box:

Test it out by creating a new message, back in your email app…
