Install: Step-by-Step Guide
Open your email signature in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
If you're logged into your Email Signature Rescue account then you can view your email signature in Full Screen Preview.
IMPORTANT: Use only the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser. Do not use the Safari web browser to copy your email signature from as there is a bug in Safari that will cause your images to stack vertically.
Now that your email signature is open in a new window, press Cmd + A to highlight the signature, then press Cmd + C to copy the signature.
NOTE: Do not use your mouse to highlight your signature, use the key command. Using your mouse may result in you missing out on some code which will cause issues with formatting.
Switch to Spark Mail and from the toolbar select Spark > Preferences.
From the Preferences window you will see tabs listed across the top, select Signatures.
On the left hand side you will find your signature list. Click the + icon at the bottom to add a new signature. Click inside the signature window and press Cmd + V to paste your copied email signature.
Now that your signature has been pasted, click the Default for button and select your email account.
Click Save, close out of your preferences and compose a new email. Your signature will now be automatically inserted into your emails.
Congratulations! Your email signature is now installed and ready to use!

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.
