How to Add an Email Signature in Yahoo Mail App on iPhone (iOS)

Summary:

Unfortunately, because of a problem in iOS (the operating system for iPhones and iPads), installing a signature directly causes the font to be converted to Times New Roman. In order to prevent the change, you must install the signature in another email program first, such as Outlook or Gmail, send an empty email with the signature to the iPhone / iPad, copy the signature into the email signature field, then you need to shake the phone until a menu appears, finally select “undo” and the signature should work.

Step 1:

Install the email signature into another email program such as Outlook or Gmail.

Step 2:

Send an empty email (with the signature) from the other email program to the email account that is set up on the iPhone / iPad.

Step 3:

Open the email on your iOS device, press and hold over any plain text in the signature, then press “Select All” and then press “Copy”.
