Step 5:

Choose “Undo”, and your signature is now installed!

Notes:

  • If the images in your email signature aren’t appearing and you’re only getting a gray outline, go to Settings > Mail > Load Remote Images – should be switched on.
  • On iPhones, by default the “Shake to Undo” feature is turned on. If you cannot get the “Shake to Undo” message to appear after shaking your phone, you may need to check if it’s turned on in your iPhone’s settings. Go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch. Tap to turn on “Shake to Undo”. After that, try to install your signature again and it should work correctly.

    1. Hi Emma,

      On iPhones, by default the “Shake to Undo” feature is turned on. You may need to check if it’s turned on in your iPhone’s settings.

      Go to Settings > General > Accessibility

      Tap on “Shake to Undo” and turn it on.

      After that, try to install your signature again and it should work correctly.

    1. That is strange! It looks like Gmail is cutting off half of the signature. Did you follow the steps to install the signature on your iPhone correctly? Also, once you’ve pasted your signature, it’s important to “Undo Change Attributes”. If you don’t do this, the signature wont work correctly.

  1. Hello.

    The resolution of the signature is bad when i have sent it from my iphone X..
    Everything is fine if i sent it from my mac.

    1. Hi Kurt-Johan,

      If the resolution of the images is bad, I would use larger images and then scale them down in Gimmio. When you use larger images and scale them down, the images will look a lot more crisp and clear on mobile devices which have retina displays.

  2. Hello,

    i just did the steps as mentioned above. My problem is, i cant see my pictures, there are only gray outlines. “Load remote images” is turned on on the Iphone. Im using Apple Mail What can i do?

  3. just found the solution:

    1 Create the .html source code of your signature and open on windows your editor.
    2 Paste it in there and save the file with the ending .html
    3 Send yourself this file via mail
    4 Open this mail and oopen the .html file with your Iphone/Ipad
    5 Copy the file and paste into the signature directory in settings-mail

    Done 🙂

    1. Hi Taylan,

      If you’re not using Gimmio for your email signatures, what you did is correct. This is how you can install your signature on an iPhone.

      If you’re using Gimmio, you can easily send the signature to your email from the dashboard and open the email on your iPhone and install the signature from there. It basically does what you listed in the steps above in just a couple of clicks 🙂
