In the signature creator of Apple Mail, you’ll see two checkboxes.
The first says ‘Always match my default message font’.
Check this box if you want your email signature to match the default font style and size you use for emails. Uncheck this box if you want to use custom formatting.
The second checkbox says ‘Place signature above quoted text’. That tells Apple Mail where to put your signature on messages you reply to or forward.
If you check the box, your signature will appear after the message that you typed above the original message. If you uncheck the box, your signature will appear at the bottom of the thread.
To automatically add a signature to every email, you can follow these steps.
One of the best features for Apple users is the Apple Mail image in signature functionality. You can easily use your Mac computer or laptop to add a logo to your email signature.

And that’s it! Your image will appear in your Apple Mail signature. (You can remove it by highlighting the image and hitting ‘delete’.)
If you’re using Apple Mail, you can create a professional email signature with HubSpot’s Email Signature Generator and paste it into your signature settings.
Apple Mail doesn’t allow you to paste HTML code directly in the ‘Signatures’ pop-up menu. Instead, you’ll need to create a new signature and then find and edit the signature file on your Mac.

That being said, there’s an easier way to get a custom-formatted signature to Apple Mail using HubSpot’s Email Signature Generator.
To add your custom signature to Apple Mail after creating it on HubSpot:
Copy your signature.
Open the Mail app, then navigate to ‘Mail’ and ‘Preferences’.
Create and label a new signature, and uncheck the box that says ‘Always match my default message font’.
Customizing your email signature on Apple Mail only takes a few minutes. If you need to make changes, it’s easy to go back and edit or create variations.
