Step 3:

In the middle column, type a name for your new signature. 

In the right column, remove any text that may be there and then paste your new or updated email signature (or press Command + V) in there.

Important: Ensure you untick the box at the bottom which says “Always match my default message font” as this will turn your email signature into plain text.

Select your new signature in the “Choose Signature” section near the bottom to use the signature you have just created.

Close the Preferences/Signatures window, click to compose a new email and enjoy your new signature!

    1. Hi Victor,

      When pasting your email signature into Apple Mail, the images may show up as blank in the Signatures tab. However, when you go to compose a new email, the images should show up correctly.

      This is normal behavior for Apple Mail as the signature preview window doesn’t always download the images when you paste the signature.
