New to iPhone or iPad and wondering how to change your signature to something a little more custom and personal than "Sent from my iPhone?" It's easy to do and can save you a lot of time when writing emails on your phone or tablet. Here's how!

How to set different per-account email signatures on your iPhone and iPad

  4. Tap Per Account.

  1. Tap the end of the existing Signature.

How to create rich HTML signatures on your iPhone and iPad

  1. Send yourself an email from your computer or device that already has HTML signatures set up on it. It can be a blank email as long as it has your signature.
  2. Launch the Mail app from your Home screen.
  3. Tap the account your email was sent to.
  4. Tap the email to open it.

  1. Tap and hold the signature so that the selection tool appears.
  2. Tap Select All to highlight the entire signature.
  3. Tap Copy.

  1. Press the Home button to return to your Home screen.
  2. Launch Settings from your Home screen.
  3. Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  4. Tap Signature under the Mail section.

  1. Tap and hold the default signature so that the selection tool appears.
  2. Tap Select All to highlight the entire signature.
  3. Tap Cut.

  1. Tap and hold the empty Signature field to bring up the selection tool.
  2. Tap Paste from the pop-up menu to insert your rich HTML signature. When you paste in the copied signature iOS will automatically strip it of formatting.
  3. Shake your iPhone or iPad to activate the Undo tool.
  4. Tap Undo to remove any automatic formatting and bring back color or content from the original paste.

Your rich HTML signature will now appear at the bottom of emails sent from your iPhone or iPad.

  • I still don’t think there’s a way to insert a signature for an individual email if the signature is not included by default. This is a major annoyance for me. I don’t want my full signature on every email I send to my team (50% or my mail), but I want it there for people outside my organization (the other 50%).
