Has anyone found a way of putting a reasonable signature in outgoing iCloud mail messages? Or are we stuck with simply plaint text? I can't seem to get even italics or bold. If there's no way to do it, surely that's a bit rubbish.........?

MacBook Pro 13", Mac OS X (10.6.3), Bought May 2010

    Hi ! Did you find a solution. I am having the same trouble. Before we changed to the icloud I had Mobile me with a JPEG signature. Now when I send an email it arrives as an attachement !

    Nope, haven't found anything! I can't even add a jpeg - to either MMe previously or iCloud now... If I do find out anything I'll post here... Cheers!

    I spoke to somebody at apple and he didn't have a solution either. He suggested waiting a month or two as there will be some improvements to come!

    Just checking in several months after Gary to revisit this topic. I have recently migrated from Gmail and one of the things I'm sorely missing is rich text and linking in my email signature.


    I'm including links in my signature, but when sending they don't automatically become hyperlinked (unless the receiving end user's email client does it for them.


    I'd like more control over the signature! I hope they add that soon.

    You can get bold by marking the text and then use the short command, "cmd + b"

    I'm trying to do the same; I, obviously, have it set up in gmail, as I use Icloud as reply to, I don't understand how you can change the style, font, font size, and color while composing an email, but not your signature....  Maybe we'll just have to do that in every mail, that's great technology

    Hi, you do know that you can format your signature in Mail?

    You can also sync your gmail account to Mail.

    So if you sit by your computer, use mail insted of iCloud, then you can send it through iCloud, with signatur. Still there will be no nice signature while you are not by your computer and you are using iCloud to send your mail from.

    In mail you can have more than one signature to each account. For example business and private.

    The developer of iCloud have a lot to do.

    Hi Lasse, thanks for the reply. I, honestly, don't like Mail on the mac and I go back and forth with it, I have both icloud and gmail synced to it, which then I get rid of and try again. The problem with Mail is that I can not get my icloud address which is my fun address to have colors in my signature like I have them in gmail whereI can send messages from my address as well as have my e-mail come to. I don't want to have to write some script in html, not my thing and I'll just end up making a mess. I wish that the iPhone 4S would give capability to have colored signatures, but I appreciate your help.  I know they the developers have a lot to do, but I think they're doing a great job; to be able to sync across all apple deices is impressive and is no comparison to having a colored signature.

    Yes I am a fan og gmail too. I am using Google Calender as well wich I sync to my iCal in my iPhone. The google Calender App was not so god from the start. In my Phone I use the built in Calender and in my iMac I use Google. Where ever I do changes these will sync on both places.

    Thanks looks like we're on the same page, I want to do what you do with your calendars and contacts; I just set up an exchange account and my addresses and caendars are a MESS!! Advice?

  • LasseMartinell Level 1 (20 points)


    I don't think you need (or should) use the exchange account, if you are on a Mac anyway.

    Check out the settings in gmail and Google calendar.


    I have everything in the Swedish language but this is my settings in iCalender.

    Ad a new account.




    Fill in your gmail adress and password



    Choose your Google Calenders. (You can set permissions under "Redigera" Edit or Properties?

    A work around the signature in iCloud


    1. Open iClod mail


    2. New Letter


    3. Do your signature in the mail, with logo and style.


    4. Save it in iCloud arkive.


    Next time you write an email, you can copy the signature from the letter in the arkive.

    It's not perfect but then you have your signature without leaving your browser.

    And it works when your not on your own computer.

    Thank you; I got them to sync, no exchange account needed

  • alwayslostandconfused Level 1 (0 points)

    Am I supposed to opem iCloud in Mail or tjust ICloud mail; I got my signature to change colords, many thanks, but I have no idea how to save it in the archive? Thanks so much for all of your help.
