OS X :: Signature Appears In Every Message In Mail Program?
Feb 2, 2009
In the mail program the signature appears in every message I type even when i reply. Can I change this so that it does not appear at the bottom of the message when I reply, as it is appearing right down the bottom of the emails.
If not, what is a better email client to use on the mac, perhaps thunderbird?
Mail does not notify me by giving me the "Ping" sound when new mail has arrived. I actually usually know new emails have arrived by my iPhone making the "Ping" Sound. Right now I am in Safari, but mail is running in the dock (I clicked the red X button). - - Just for reference of how I am using Mail usually.
I am on mac laptop OSX 10.9.2 using Mail 7.2. I tried to open a "Mailer Daemon" message and it is frozen, not even open but a grey colored blank "message". I've tried: closing the message unsuccessfullyForce Quitting the application (reads "Mail (not Responding)") when I do. (4 times)Turning off the entire computer, letting it rest and rebooting. (3 times)Opening up my server on the internet and deleting the offensive message "mailer daemon"Turning off the computer again.
So...as soon as I open mail, the grey "message" is open. I can click on the Mail Viewer window and have that come forward, but all is frozen.Just did it again and it hasn't changed. Had to force quit again. Never before in 8 years of using the Mail application (different computers). The rainbow wheel of death spins and spins.
What happens when the error message in the Mail program is long that you cannot get to the bottom of it? I cannot click it or even access this email from a folder or mailbox to delete it. Am I going to be stuck with it for eternity???

I am not a mac user (please forgive me) but I have a friend who has a Mac and cannot print all of a sudden. From what I understand it is an I-Mac and the OS is OSX.
All of a sudden (after a few years without trouble) she is getting an out of memory message when she sends a job to the printer. Further, no jobs show up in the printer dialogue window when it is sent from the computer. The print jobs are not large, just simple emails. Even when she creates a blank message with the word test in the body it still wont print.
The printer is an HP D4160.
It is not sending any messages re: the status of the cartridges. The computer is communicating with the printer as it will print a test page when commanded to from the computer so this is truly baffling.
I can't update software because a message appears that I have to log with the same Apple ID that was used to purchase them: iMovie, Garage Band, iPhoto, but those apps came with OSX Lion.How can I get the "original" Apple ID?

When I try to open a document from my file on Mac OS X the following message appears, with the Bluetooth logo: 'SELECT A BLUETOOTH DEVICE ....Select a device to send file ...' I then have to go to the source of the document, (e.g. Pages), to open the file.
I have a message that pops up and disappears before I can get a chance to read it. I figured it may be an issue with an application since MS office 11 is installed and was running at the times also, before a reminder pops up a message appears. I fear there may be a potential issue with the OS or an application.
I'm trying to put a small image into one of my standard signatures for outgoing mail. In the Mail.app pref pane this works fine. Just drag the image into the field and its there. However, when I send an email with the signature at the bottom, the image is just received as an attachment. Is there a way to "embed" the image into the signature and subsequently the email? The image is a 60kb jpg image by the way.
I'm recently reintroduced to Macs after living in PC land for 20 years. Haven't found a capability to have an email signature that only posts to "new" mails, or "forwards" in chain. Outlook has the capability to not add signature in replies - is there something similar in Mac?
i tried to add an animated gif to my signature, but it only show a fixed picture. does anybody know how to do this?
the funny thing is that i sent a test mail to both my mac at work and at home - and at home it actually worked... i just don't get it. the software is the same and i also thought my prefs were the same as well?
Today, after using a signature in Apple Mail for the past few months, I discovered that my signature is HUGE when read by non Apple Mail users and that the text in my emails is in Times New Roman even though I set it to Helvectia by default.
Turns out this is a problem in Apple Mail, as setting a default font only affects what YOU see, not what the email recipient sees. This seems backwards to me. My emails have apparently been all unorganized for months now. I've sent out job applications thinking I had a sleek format...
Anyways, researching this, I read nearly every post in this google search, but still don't understand how to fix the problem. Apparently there's one "fix" involving stationary, and another fix where you begin typing right at the beginning of the sig...?
Can anyone tell me how to make my emails that I send from Apple Mail show up for my recipients in Helvectia and have the signature be in the same font size and Helvectia as well ? And no, clicking the "always match my default message font" button didn't do this, just in case.
I have a signature set up in Apple Mail with an image. When I send an email to a PC user, they do not see my signature in the body of the email. The signature is viewed as an attachment. Is there anyway to resolve this in Apple Mail? I know if I set the signature to plain txt instead of rtf this works, but then I can't have a fancy image signature. If I move across to Entourage, will this solve it? Is it a limitation on Apple Mail's side?
I have several signatures in my Preferences and, up until this week, I could pick any of them from the drop-down menu when composing a message. Now the drop-down menu is empty, even though all of the signatures are still visible in the Preferences
I want to create a colourful signature in Mac Mail but I can't figure out how to use different fonts and colours within the same signature. All I have managed to do is change the default font for all my email messages. Could someone please explain where the font formatting controls are for signatures?
When I add a signature to a reply email, the signature always generates at the very bottom of the email. Below all the previous quoted text. Is there a way to get the signature to automatically appear below my new message but above all the previous quoted text automatically?

I cannot remove my signature from my outgoing mail. Under the Mail tab, preferences does not send me to a signature option, only mailbox behaviors, etc.I created one about 2 years ago and it is no longer applicable, so I must delete it off every email I send because I cannot find the link to cancel it permanently.
Since the sender's Address Book photo is not included with emails sent (even 'though Apple Mail makes it look like they are) how can you add a personal photo to a Mail signature? Or, is there another means of including a personal photo with every email sent?
