Step #1. First off, you need to draft a mail from your computer or device that already has HTML signatures. If there is none, you can open the Mail app or any third-party mail client and write your HTML signature there in the compose area of a mail.
Step #2. Now send that mail to yourself or to any other account you have access to.
Step #3. Next, open that mail you have sent to yourself (you have to open that mail in your device, not on the computer).
Step #4. Copy that entire HTML signature (tap and hold the signature – tap Select All from the selection tool – tap Copy).
Then Open Settings app → Mail → Signature.
You can either select ‘All Accounts’ or ‘Per Account.’
In the signature area, remove your previous signature and there will be blank space.
Step #5. Now tap and hold that blank area to summon selection tool. From the options, tap on Paste.
Step #6. This will insert your newly created rich HTML signature, which will show web links you might have inserted earlier.
