How to Create a Signature in Apple Mail

By Sophie Southern

Creating an email signature is a simple way to make your messages look more professional while giving your blog, website or business more exposure. If you're on a Mac, Apple Mail lets you create multiple signatures with text and images and apply them to different email accounts. Once you create your email signatures, Mail also lets you choose which signature you want to apply to an email directly through the message window.

Step 1

Click the "Mail" icon in your Dock to open Apple Mail. Select "Mail" from the top menu bar, then select "Preferences."

Step 2

Click the "Signatures" tab and select the email account for which you want to create a signature.

Step 3

Click the "+" icon under the signatures window to add a new signature. Type a name for your signature. Mail will automatically include your name and email address in your signature.

Add the information you want to include in your email signature. Traditionally, you should include your name, title, company, email address and website. You can also include your mobile and office phone, or your account names on social networks.
