    I use Apple Mail and would like an email signature with my company logo. But when I put it in place, it's just sent as an attachment. How can I do it properly?

    Hi,

    did you actually create a signature ?

    Mail / Preferences / Signatures : you can drag and drop a picture/logo there.

    dangerfish is correct.

    It's a task beyond the average user's ability...and a corrupt signature from Apple Mail has the power to crash Outlook for Windows!

    So dragging and dropping a png into the signatures dialogue box isn't a good idea?

    actually, i praise apple for this.

    i hate receiving mails with bulky signatures, logos, and stupid info i don't want and don't need..

    just write the ESSENTIAL!

    ex.:

    Steve Jobs
    Apple.com


    or

    Steve Jobs
    222 333 444
    Apple.com


    or just

    -Steve

    Well, a lot of people don't agree with that. A tasteful and well done signature is a great place to market your company (I agree though to keep it simple).

    I think Apple have solved this (or rather, *not* solved) in an extremely bad way. If people want to have signatures, let them have signatures!

    It's quite embarrassing when a newly switched user ask how to create a signature with some HTML, and you have to answer "...eh, actually, it's quite hard to do it that way...", whilst in Outlook it's just drag and drop.

    HTML signatures are not easy to do, but if you Google the topic you will find articles . YouTube also contains stuff.

    People who use HTML signatures should be shot, really. What the creator wants to stuff in there is almost always useless to the person at the other end. *Marketing*? Please.

    Except they affect the person on the other end. You can't just ignore them.

    You have got to be kidding. Not the process... but that someone recommends putting *CSS markup in a signature*?

    The world is ending.
