    So, I take it that you created a signature with logo successfully?

    Yes I did but I have not used the aquamail instead I use type mail app since to me is less confusing.

    Now hopefully someone will come up with what I mentioned before to create link under image or logo so once someone click on the logo will take him directly to logo website as well Facebook twitter youtube etc. But it's good start and hopefully they will add this options like on the pc.

    I understand why you choose Type. It's a less capable app than AquaMail, but that makes it simpler too.

    But I need the functionality of AquaMail, and once you take the time to learn at least some of all the tricks it can do, you don't want to use anything else again.

    You can create links to websites, twitter, whatever, by copying the address and pasting it into your signature.

    Ok, I figured out how make a clickable hyperlink in an image or text using AquaMail. It's very simple once you figure it out. Dang...I love AquaMail, it will do just about anything. I don't have Type Mail installed, but likely if Type has the capability to do this, it will be similar steps.

    After inserting the image, just tap on the image. A pop-up box opens and the first choice at the top is 'Set web link'. Tap on that and another box opens for adding a web address. Type it in, tap ok and you are good.

    Type Mail might do it too, but what the heck, AquaMail is only $5 anyway. Been worth it to me.

    This trick for making clickable hyperlinks in images, etc works in signatures you create and in the body of the email. Pretty cool how simple it is to do. It's not documented in the FAQs, you gotta just figure it out. I knew how to do it on a computer but had never tried on a mobile email client.

    An image in HTML is

    <img src="link to picture posted on a server somewhere" />

    Problem. Not all email programs decode HTML. One that doesn't will just show the above text, not the picture. There's nothing you can do from your end to change that.

    Some email programs just ignore HTML. That link will show as a blank line.

    Some people, using real filtering, delete any email with HTML. I don't talk to people who send me HTML in the body (if they're sending me something for me to look at the HTML, they'll attach it in a file), so I know it's spam, so it gets deleted before I even see it. POPFile will do that after a month or so of having anything with HTML in the body set as spam.

    Rule of thumb - don't put anything in an email but letters, numbers and punctuation. Every email program will show your email the way you sent it.

    Pretty pictures are nice - save them for your print ads and websites.

    Just would like to update what I have done. I got aquamail paid app. I did the text I want than Below follow us on Twitter, Facebook, youtube, hooz google+ and yes I fid put each of it as a small logos and link with social media. Also on the bottom I added my company logo and linked with my website.
    I tested with Gmail, exchange, yahoo and few more emails and worked well reply came same with the way I sent with linked icons for social media.
    What I tested with my wife iPhone stock email when reply icons will not come only long links without icons/images for social media. So looks like ios is not work well when reply back to me but received as I send with icons on the bottom and normally if you click will take you for assigned page but reply came links only for each.
    I hope down the road will be somehow fixed or compatible

    Some email clients or mail systems strip out images in replies, mainly to save bandwidth. Also with the idea being that they've been seen and are not necessary.

    Just to be clear, the original test emails to her iPhone did display correctly, only the replies from it had images stripped, correct?

    As for what Rukbat said, I absolutely agree with him - in principle. But...well, read my post #4 in this thread:

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/ask...-note-4-a.html

    If like Rukbat I filtered all the html email we received, my business would go broke, my wife's business would go broke, and we would miss most of our emailed notices for bills due and stuff.

    Yes you are correct, the original email on her iPhone displayed correctly. No issues only when I replied back to myself came with long links.

    Ok, I thought it would. HTML is becoming almost the default format (unfortunately). Sometimes you have to change a setting to allow images by default or click an 'allow images' button. But there's few email programs left anymore that can't display HTML, even if they can't compose in it. That's simply because HTML is so common now it's just a necessary function.

    Is there a way to same this signature on stock ios email app on ipad?
    I have no idea. No real experience with iPhone and don't want to have any. I could Google about it, but you can do that or look in the user manual.

    Just a little extra info...as an alternative to keeping signature images on your phone, you can keep them on a sever or website. Make the image file available on a publicly accessible host - your website for example. I use Google Drive. Instructions on how to host a file on Google Drive can be found here:

    http://www.dalebasler.com/2014/03/ge...-google-drive/

    It works about the same as storing images locally, you just put in the image as an address instead of a file. The advantage is mostly that images do not have to be on the phone.

    This link below is a pretty good explanation of how to setup hosting your images (or other files) using Google Drive. The same thing can be done with Dropbox or most other cloud storage. But just by having a Google account you already have 15GB on GD. You can put your company logo, Twitter and Facebook icons - whatever you need in a folder on GD.

    I use hosting images for custom signatures for several phones, tablets and Windows and Linux desktops. The advantage is everything is always in the same place. If I do a reset, reinstall or get a new device no transfer of files is needed. So, for example with AquaMail, I just reload a backup and accounts, signatures, everything is as it was. (Well, almost. I've noticed AquaMail misses saving a couple of minor settings. The only bug I've found so far.) I do the same thing with Thunderbird on desktops. That's one reason why so much email you receive has remote hosted images rather than imbedded. Simplified setup after the initial install. The other main reason is to reduce the size of emails.

    This link below is specific to Gmail, but don't let that spook you. It works the same for other email clients. Basically you just paste in the image location in GD to a dialog box in AquaMail instead of selecting an image file.

    You'll know when you have your remote-hosted images all configured correctly. When you start a new email, the images will appear same as they do with the files on the phone. No images, you made a mistake somewhere.

    It's really not that difficult to setup. You can do it. Impress your friends and coworkers with your technical expertise.

    To insert a logo or other image into the body or signature of an email you must use an email app that can compose HTML email. I don't know what email app you have, but if it cannot compose in HTML you can choose from several that can such as AquaMail, Maildroid, etc.

    Any idea if the new Gmail app will compose HTML email?
