When I first tried to do this, I just put standard HTML code in the signature file of my email. That didn't work.

You have to use the Mac email options to set this up.

Here's how.

Go into MAIL > PREFERENCES.

Click SIGNATURES.

Make a new one or edit and existing one.

Then, in the body of the signature, type in the text that you want to have as a link.

SELECT the text, RIGHT CLICK on it and choose, LINK > ADD LINK...

LINK > Add Link

Then PASTE IN or TYPE IN a link.

CLICK OK.

Close out of the window and you are done.
