How to create multiple email signatures on your iPhone and iPad

If you've got more than one email account on your iPhone or iPad, for example, an iCloud account, Gmail account, and/or a Hotmail/Outlook/Exchange account, or a work, school, and/or personal account, you'll probably want and need separate email signatures for each account. Maybe you don't want work contacts having your personal cell number, but you'd like personal contacts to. Whatever the reason, iOS lets you easily add multiple signatures for use in the [Mail app](http://www.imore.com/mail "Apple Mail app for iOS and OS X).

How to secure and encrypt your OS X Mail messages with GPGMail 2

Standard email just isn't secure. If the internet didn't kill privacy, people and agencies using and abusing it have certainly put it into intensive care. There's nothing we can do to protect the servers our mail goes through, but luckily there is something we can do to protect it before it goes through those servers. We can encrypt it with pretty good privacy (PGP). And open-source system, which means any flaws or back doors are more easily investigated and detected by more people than a closed, proprietary system would be. GPGMail 2 employs PGP, is available for Mac (and Windows), and can help you make sure your emails are only read by the intended recipient.

How to use Mail: The ultimate guide

Mail is one of the core apps of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Rich, HTML email was shown off by Steve Jobs in 2007 when he first introduced the iPhone, and again in 2010 when he introduced the iPad. It was and is so important, he put it in the iPhone and iPad Dock, and by default there it still remains. Whether you use the free iCloud account that comes with your Apple device, or Yahoo!, Google's Gmail, Microsoft's Hotmail, Live, or Outlook.com, your local ISP email or something else entirely, whether you have an IMAP, ActiveSync, or POP account, your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad can keep you connected to it wherever you go, and whatever you're doing.
