With your email signature open in your web browser, press Ctrl / ⌘ + A to highlight the signature, then press Ctrl / ⌘ + C to copy the signature.

With your Settings screen open, you should see your email signature field at the top left under the Identity section.

5 Step Five
Click Save, then click the Back to Mail button at the top left of your screen.
6 Step Six
Compose a new email and you will see your email signature now automatically inserts.

My email signature doesn't look right when I paste it
More than likely, you have missed copying some of the code. Try pressing Ctrl or ⌘ + A to select all, then Ctrl or ⌘ + C to copy instead of using your mouse to highlight it.
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 will work when you receive the email.
