    In the Mail preferences window, use the dropdown menus next to “Choose signature” to select the signature you just created for your new emails and for replies/forwards.

    Close the Mail preferences window, and your Author Signature is now installed and will automatically appear in your new emails and replies/forwards.

That’s it! Your new email signature is now installed and ready to use in Apple Mail on MacOS.

A few important points to remember:

  • Make sure the "Always match my default message font" option is unchecked to prevent your signature from appearing in plain text.
  • If your signature still appears as plain text, try changing the "Place signature above quoted text" checkbox and pasting your signature again.
  • If images aren't showing up when composing an email, navigate to your Privacy settings and ensure that the "Block All Remote Content" option is unchecked.
