    This Mail signatures session was so very helpful, well, as I am finding all your mini tutorials to be.

    Many thanks indeed. (Now, to go and check out your proper courses.)

    Any hints on how to trouble-shoot when signatures don't work Gary?

    On all but one of my accounts the signature works just fine. But even though my main account has a signature (actually there are now two) when I use that account for email no signature shows up.

    Having gone through this video I thought perhaps the selector might be my salvation but when I tried to use it "None" was the only option.

    Any ideas?

    Jon: Watch the video carefully. Make sure you have assigned the signatures you want to the accounts you want.

    Yup - followed all steps. Even removed the old signature and created a new version. Guess I'll call Apple Support and see what they have to say.

    I really enjoyed this detailed explanation on signatures. I’ve had trouble with signatures in the past and NEVER thought about DRAGGING the signature to each email address! What a revelation!

    Very helpful. As a returning MAC user (last used on laptop in mid-90’s) I am often looking for something like this lesson on Signatures…like someone else, I had created signatures but could not get them to display…now they do!
