How to Create E-mail Signatures in iOS

This blog post is for my mom.  She was an Android OS users for a few years with my brother providing tech support since he bought the device.  After years of using Android OS devices each with a different user interface that confounded my mother,  my brother finally bought her an iPhone and threw me under the bus for tech support.  Apparently my mom called him a lot.  A lot.

After walking her through the initial setup of her iPhone 5, my mom has called me only once with a problem with her phone.  She had accidentally toggled the mute switch.  Easy enough to fix once she found the button.

On a recent email I noticed my mom had used an email signature.  It contained her parting salutation, her home address, and phone numbers.  Of course I could see that she was typing this out and had not yet discovered the email signature feature of iOS.

In iOS you can create a standard email signature that is attached to each message you send.  You can create a one signature for use with all email accounts or create unique ones for each email account.  Here's how you do it.

Launch the Settings app.

In the Settings app, tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.  Gently slide your finger up the screen to scroll down until you see the menu item for Signature.  Tap on the > or the word Signature.

Enter the signature text you want to use.  This text will be appended to the bottom of every email you send from your iPhone.
