Outlook for iOS is a mobile email client which does its job well. 4.6 rating in App Store proves that users like Outlook for iOS quite a lot. Unfortunately, the default “Get Outlook for iOS” signature is almost as cringy as the “Sent from my iPhone” text. Read on to see how to change that “Get Outlook for iOS” strapline into a professional HTML email signature.
Design your Outlook for iOS email signature
If you want to design your perfect mobile email signature, you need to design it in HTML. Without using HTML, there is no way to include your logo, banner or social media links in Outlook for iOS. The easiest way to design a well formatted and professional email signature is to use our free email signature generator:
- In the email signature generator, pick Thunderbird as your email signature platform. Don’t worry, you’re still designing a signature for Outlook for iOS.
- Pick up your favorite signature design, add your contact info and images. The generator guides you through all the steps. After you personalize the signature to your needs, click the Apply your signature:
- Generate the HTML code of your signature (1) and copy it to the clipboard (2):
You will need this HTML code to set up your email signature in Outlook for iOS. If you use the signature generator on your iPhone, the HTML code should be already copied to pasteboard at this point. If you find it more comfortable to use the generator on another device, send the HTML code to your email to open it on your mobile. It would be a good idea to use a .txt file for that, instead of sending the code in the message body.

Once you have the HTML code of your signature, you need to add it in Outlook for iOS. Here is how to change the default “Get Outlook for iOS” signature to one that is both attractive and informative:

- In the options, scroll down and tap Signature to access the signature editor:
