Are you frustrated with iPhone advertising to all your clients what device you are using by ending each email with “Sent from my iPhone”? Perhaps you should edit the email signature on your device. An email signature is a block of text at the end of emails representing who you are. It is a quick and effective way to let others know who they are emailing and how to contact you without having an elaborate introductory paragraph.
This article will cover the steps to add an email signature on your iPhone.
Steps to follow:
Solution 1: For basic email signatures
- On the home screen of your iPhone, scroll down and look for Settings. Tap on the app once you have located it.
- If your device is running iOS version 9.0 and below, follow step 3. If your device is running iOS version 10.0 and above, follow step 4 instead. If you are unsure, tap on General within the settings. Then, tap on About. The second line in the app will tell you the software version.
- For iOS version 9.0 and below, scroll down and look for the Mail, Contacts, and Calendars options. Then scroll down until you find the section of settings under Mail.
- For iOS version 10.0 and above, look for the Mail option. It should be located under Passwords & Accounts. Tap on that option.
- Scroll down and search for Signature.
- After selecting that option, there will be three main features. Change the text within the last textbox to format a basic email signature.
- If you want to Bold, Italic, or Underline certain words or phrases, select and highlight those specific words by pressing down on the words for some time. Then, click on the B I U. You can choose the effect you wish to add.
- Click on Per Account above to set up a different signature for each account you run within the Mail app. A blue tick should appear beside it. If you wish to have the same email signature for all accounts, click on the All Accounts option instead.
Solution 2: Format more complex email signatures
You will need to shake the phone to undo the changed attributes for this solution to work. The first two steps will cover how to check whether the function is enabled.
- From Settings, scroll down and look for Accessibility. After tapping on that option, tap the Touch settings under Physical and Motor settings.
- Scroll further down and look for Shake to Undo. It should be the third option from the bottom. Toggle the switch to enable the function.
- Exit the app.
- To set up a more complex email signature, such as adding different font sizes and images, you will need to create one on another platform, such as Gmail.
- Send an email containing the email signature to yourself.
- Hold down on the text for a few seconds until a black bar pops up. Choose Select all. Then copy.
- Go back to Settings and follow the instructions from Solution 1 from steps 1 to 6.
- In the textbox, paste the email signature you have copied into the textbox.
- Shake your phone to undo the formatting and place in your text automatically.
- When the pop-up window appears, select the option: Undo.
- If your email signature has returned to what it looked like when copied, save it by returning to the previous page.
