How to Style and hy­per­link email sig­na­tures for iOS

Mac|Life - - CREATE -

1 Write your sig­na­ture

In Set­tings > Mail > Sig­na­ture, type your sig­na­ture, and se­lect words to ap­ply a bold, italic, or un­der­line style to. Copy the text to the Clip­board, then paste it into a blank Pages doc­u­ment.

2 Add hy­per­links

Se­lect a part of your sig­na­ture you want to hy­per­link, then tap Link in the con­tex­tual op­tions. In­sure “Link To” is set to Web­page, en­ter an ad­dress next to Link, tap Done, and re­peat as needed.

3 Set your sig­na­ture

It‘s wise to avoid chang­ing your text’s font – keep it match­ing the rest of your email con­tents. Text color changes are fine, though. Copy and paste your sig­na­ture back into the box in Set­tings.

4 Set up Thun­der­bird

Con­fig­ure your email ac­count in Thun­der­bird on your Mac: choose Tools > Ac­count Set­tings > Ac­count Ac­tions > Add Mail Ac­count. For some pop­u­lar ser­vices, server set­tings are added for you.

5 Check com­po­si­tion

Se­lect Com­po­si­tion & Ad­dress­ing and in­sure “Com­pose mes­sages in HTML for­mat” is en­abled. Email your sig from iOS to the ac­count just set up, then rightclick it and pick Edit As New Mesage.

6 Add FaceTime links

Se­lect text to link, choose In­sert > Link, and type facetime-au­dio:// or facetime:// then your FaceTime email or num­ber. Email back to your iOS de­vice, and copy and paste it as your sig­na­ture.
