Signature in Mail not being saved

Postby Monvic » Thu Jan 03, 2019 3:53 pm

Hello Everyone,
I am using OS 10.14.2 and Mail 12.2 on my lap top.
I have wanted to use a standard signature at the end of my emails, only problem is the program doesn't remember it when using Apple mail. It doesn't even remember it in the All Signature section of Mail Preferences. I've restarted my lap top.
Any ideas?
Monica

Hi Monica,
Not sure this will be helpful or not... I have the same version of macOS and Mail on my iMac as you listed.
Mail serves 4 accounts, only 1 of which had a signature assigned. But when I go to Mail Preferences > Signatures, I see 3 columns:
The leftmost column starts with "All Signatures" and if I click on that I see (in the centre column) Signature #2 and Signature #1
Selecting either of these shows what I have set up for each (in the right hand column.) clicking on the "+"sign below the centre column produced a Signature #3 and in the right hand column I could create a signature there as desired, so all seems to work to this point.
Now moving on to the one account for which I had previously assigned a signature. If I used that account and sent myself an email to one of my other accounts, no signature was attached. But then I noticed the little pulldown under the centre column which says "Choose Signature". The pulldown was set on "None". I then used the pulldown (while that account was selected in the left hand column) and changed the entry from "None" to "Signature #1" Now when I send an email from that account the signature gets entered in the body before I even start typing my own stuff and gets sent properly to the receiving account.

See if your system does this - if not, I haven't a clue how to help.

Thanks Dave, but that’s not the issue. When I create a signature it is not there next time I use Mail. It’s keeping the ones I created last year, even after I click on the minus sign and have them disappear. Next time I open Mail they are back. Weird

This article is old, but there may be something useful there...
