Hi from France !
I’ll try it monday on my director iPad …. I did the same thing from years to install every new signature but I didn’t know that you should shake your iphone / ipad to do it work…. Hope it will be good monday ! And many thanks for that tips I missed.
note : for beeing a super modern things, Apple iphone and ipad are worse than make an outlook signature 😀
Hi Ben, were you successful in getting the signature installed on the iPad? Love to hear back. Technology have made many things easier for our lives in this modern world and I guess we will have to deal with little things like this.
I can’t seem to get it to work! But I also only get an “Undo Paste” option. Is that where I’m going wrong?
Sarah, make sure you are using iOS 12 and describe which step of the install you are having trouble with. Step 7 is a common step that people have trouble with. You have to hold on to your phone firmly and literally shake the phone for the pop-up to show. Hope this helps. Contact me directly if you need additional help!
Thank you for the guide. I can now use my email signature on my iPhone mail app.
Happy to hear that. Thanks for leaving a comment. Please share this with others.
Hi I can’t get this to work. I’m using iOS 12 I get to step 7 with it pasted in the box and the pop up says undo paste? It won’t give me any other option. I’m tearing my hair out trying to resolve this
Can yo clarify where you got stuck? In step 7, you have to literally shake your phone for the pop-up window to show. When you see the pop-up window, click undo.
I am having issues with keeping an image in the signature. Everything works perfectly and the image is there initially but within a few minutes the image will disappear and a “null” box left in its place.
Also “Load Remote Images” is turned on. Any thoughts?
Ian, how did you initially installed your signature on your iPhone? Is the images on your signature hosted on a remote web server?
hey guys! thanks for this. html sig used to work for me in ios but no longer! wonder if it’s the ios update? i get a ‘null’ where the image in my sig used to be. any other suggestions?
Hi, make sure your image is hosted on a remotely server and try doing a fresh install.
Thank you for the tutorial, however the logo in my html signature displays across the width of the email window after sending it to myself from my phone and checking on my laptop. The signature works correctly when sent from a desktop, and after doing the “Undo” trick the formatting is correct on iPhone. I can’t figure out why the dimensions of the logo are now ignored in my code? Any help would be appreciated.
Some email apps would ignore the html image dimensions so it is better to size your actual image to the size you want to use it at.
