Desktop software (Outlook, ThunderBird, The Bat!... etc) use to have eMail client programs capable of adding a signature (final text, like "Best Wishes", "Phone number:..."... etc) to each new (and replied) composed email message.
That is not usual on Android apps, and you rather get something like:

Hello World.


Sent from K-9 eMail client for Android.

Could you please suggest me any eMail client app for Android that allows me to create/import minimally complex texts for signatures on my eMail messages?

Desired features:

  • Fonts management.
  • Graphics.
  • Links.

Open source solutions preferred. Payment options accepted.

  • certainly you can change the signature in K-9 Mail, create different ones for more identities and manage them easily! ...but no idea if other than plain text is possible (because i just use plain text to play it safe). – DJCrashdummy Nov 9 '18 at 7:00

With MailDroid you can technically do it. Though they don't have everything supported in their own Signature editor, they allow you to add Raw HTML code as a signature! That virtually allows you to anything.

Even if you don't know how to write HTML, you can easily create something nice for free with services like www.mysignature.io, and then use the finished HTML code in MailDroid.

They have a free version, and a Pro version without ads and some additional features.

To add the HTML code you go into Settings>Compose>Signature. Choose the account you want to add it to and click the three dots on the upper-right side and select Add raw HTML signature. Then open the newly added empty signature and paste in the HTML code you have.

  • Is it supposed to allow graphics embedding on that HTML code? – Sopalajo de Arrierez Jan 1 '18 at 3:07
  • If it has the proper image URL in the HTML code then yes. – Yisroel Tech Jan 1 '18 at 3:20
  • Linking a external image via URL is not embedding it inside the email message. – Sopalajo de Arrierez Jan 1 '18 at 12:24
  • Are you talking about embedded whole image data? I assume it does but I haven't tried. – Yisroel Tech Jan 1 '18 at 18:37
  • I have installed MailDroid, and it allows adding images on signatures. A flaw: as for today (v4.81), these images fail when trying to include URL links (I have notified the author). I have tested the RAW HTML method too, and it works, but if you want to embed images, you should use the base64 equivalent, as explained here: stackoverflow.com/a/2329400/1461017 . Help with conversion to base 64 here: stackoverflow.com/a/16918665/1461017 . Thanks you, Yisroel Tech. – Sopalajo de Arrierez Jan 2 '18 at 0:56

I use the Samsung Email app. Not sure if available for other devices, but mine came installed on my S8+. I tried loads of other apps, inc Outlook and Gmail, but couldn't get the HTML signature. Pasted into Samsung Email app perfectly fine. Only downside is it seemed to use up a lot of battery, but with some time management in the settings (work Emails only in the day and less regularly in the night , private Emails less regularly full stop) it's a lot better.

    Could you please add some more exact reference to this software in order we can find and eventually test it? – Sopalajo de Arrierez Nov 8 '18 at 13:02
