Frequently Asked Questions

Why isn’t my email signature on the list of signatures?

If you are unable to select your email signature from the list of signatures when composing an email, your signature may not be associated with the correct account. Open your email signature settings and ensure the email signature is associated with the email you are using.

Please note if the signature was created under All Signatures, you will be unable to select it when composing an email. 

Why isn’t my email signature showing up?

If you have selected your email signature, but it is not visible, this is likely due to Apple Mail settings.
