Create an HTML e-mail signature on an iOS device iOS devices
It is possible to create an HTML signature for Mail on an iOS device without jailbreaking that device.

For this to work you need a backup of your iOS device made via iTunes.

First, create your HTML signature in your favorite text editor. It is essential that you replace the HTML tag delimiters < and > with the appropriate HTML entities: &lt; and &gt;.

Next, run Then run iBackupBot, choose your latest backup, then look for /Library/Preferences/ Click on this file to display it in the editor, and find the <SignatureKey> section.

Below it you will find tags; paste your HTML code between these tags (overwriting what is already there) and save the file.

Exit iBackupBot, then restore your iOS device via iTunes. (Click on the device in the iTunes source list, then Option-click on the Restore button and select your backup.) The signature should then appear in any e-mails you send from that device.

Using this for new ipad too !!!
Authored by: sparklyballs on Apr 14, '12 07:35:37AM

I recently (yesterday) bought the new ipad and was looking forward to putting my html signature on it too.

first attempt was a failure, it seems that if you don't change the default "sent from my ipad" signature at any stage , the signature key isn't present in the plist file.

once you have edited it any stage, the key appears in the plist and then you can modify it as above to put your own html signature in there.

i can't confirm whether this was also true for the iphone or not because when i came to do this on there i had already edited the standard boring signature.
