    This is strange, at least to me.

    On one of my email accounts, using the iPhone email client, I have
    my name and street address as a sig, thus:

    hakr100
    321 First Street
    Nowhere, USA 22222

    But when I send an email using that sig, it comes out on the iPhone as:

    hakr100
    321 First Street
    Nowhere, USA 22222


    Underlined, in blue, just like a URL.

    But it comes out the way I want, in plain text, on my desktop.

    How do I NOT get the underline and the blue?

    Thanks!

    Not possible, afaik. Mail knows it's an address and formats it as one for easy access. It's actually a feature.

    This is a feature in iOS. it tries to detect addresses, phone numbers, dates, times, etc... in order for you to be able to interact with them more easily.

    It sees that as an address so you can click on it and view it in the maps app.

    Technically it is plain text. It would only show like that on an iOS device (maybe android, dont know). As iOS sees them as short links, so you can click on it straight away to make a phone call, etc.

    I'm going to try to enclose the address info between two asterisks to see if that throws off the "feature."
    Nope, and neither did inserting two spaces between each word.

    Some feature..."my way or the highway"!

    Just remember, it's not showing up that way to others unless they also have an iPhone. It's being formatted at the destination, not by your phone when it's sent.
