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.



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.

Close out of the window and you are done.
