Signature For Mail Mac

admin 12/7/2021

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. Once you've unlocked your email signature, use the 'Copy' calls-to-action to copy the signature or the source code. Depending on your email client, there will be different steps for uploading your email signature. To help, we've covered the instructions for how to add your email signature to HubSpot, Gmail, Outlook, Apple Mail, and Yahoo Mail.

In this article, we’ll show you how to export and import your Apple Mail email signature, and also show you the signature location on your hard drive.

When changing computers, most of the time it’s easier to simply copy your email signature from your existing PC rather than create it again from scratch.

It’s not a difficult task, and should only take you a few minutes to migrate your email signatures between 2 Mac PC’s.

Apple Mail Signature Location

The location of your email signatures depends if you’re using iCloud or not.

If you’re using iCloud, your email signatures are located here:

If you’re not using iCloud, your email signatures are located here:

/Library/Mail/V3/MailData/Signatures/

Your email signatures are stored in “.mailsignature” files.
