Before you start

Before you start

Great news! We've officially released our new signature installer app for macOS. Simply download, install, and follow the guide to setup your signature in just minutes with our all-new automatic update functionality!

Try our Signature Installer App for Apple Mail

We've spent the past few months developing a brand new signature installer app for macOS which works with all of the major email clients. By using the signature installer app, you will be able to easily install your email signature in the following email clients:

  • Apple Mail (El Capitan and newer)
  • Outlook for Mac 2016
  • Outlook for Mac 2011
  • Postbox
  • Thunderbird for Mac

Installing your email signature with our app takes just seconds. You simply select your email client and email account, then enter your unique signature key or insert your custom HTML code and the installer app will install your email signature into your desired email client for you.

Not only does the signature installer app install your email signature for you, it will also automatically update your email signature whenever any changes are made to your email signature from your account. This is only applicable if using your signature key.


Next Step

Click on our Install: Signature Installer App below to follow our written installation guide with screenshots.

If for whatever reason you don't want to use our Signature Installer App, you can still install your email signature manually by following our Install: Manual Step-by-Step guide instead.

If you're experiencing any issues installing your email signature within Outlook for Mac 2011, you'll likely be able to find a resolution here.


I'm experiencing issues with the ESR Signature Installer App

Although we've thoroughly tested it, the ESR Signature Installer App is still in BETA so it's possible that you may experience some issues. If you do come across any issues when using the app, please get in touch with our friendly support team.


My images are stacked under one another instead of side-by-side

This issue occurs when copying your email signature from Safari. If you're experiencing this, you will need to open your email signature's HTML file in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox (or be logged into your Email Signature Rescue account using Chrome or Firefox if copying from Fullscreen Preview) then copy the signature from there.


My email signature doesn't look right when I paste it or send an email

More than likely, you have used your mouse to highlight the html email signature file in the browser. Don't use your mouse, only use Cmd + A (hold the Cmd key and press A at the same time) to select all of your email signature. If you use your mouse, you may miss out on some of the vital code needed to make your signature work correctly.

Another cause to this could be that you've used Safari to copy your email signature from and not Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Using Safari will cause formatting issues. To resolve this, install Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox from our Before You Start screen and copy your signature from one of these browsers instead.


I am composing an email and I can't click on any links or social media icons

In compose mode, most email programs won't allow you to use the links in your email signature. Check to see if your email signature has been installed correctly by sending a test email to yourself instead. The links and social media icons should work when you receive the email.
