Important note: If you’ve saved your signature and it’s not formatting correctly in the email, double-check the following settings:

  • The setting “Always match my default message font” should not be selected.
    Please check this in your mail settings and paste in your signature only after it’s been unchecked.

  • If your signature was looking alright yesterday, and today there are no links or images, it could be your plain text setting is activated in your emails.
    Check your Composing settings to make sure the Rich Text option is selected. 

  • Please also check your Viewing settings to make sure your Mac Mail is set to Load remote content in messages. This will make sure all images load in your emails.
