    Ok so I bought the pad for business. I run 5 accounts with various clients . The annoying things is you can only apply a single signature for all the accounts which is pretty poor... Is there a resolution for this function to enable more signatures and also add images etc to the signature also.


    Thanks in advance people ...

    I do not believe you can add images to signatures in the stock mail, sorry.

    However, for your need for different signatures - have you considered making a shortcut for each signature? That way, you only have to remember/type a couple of letters and the lines will be put in wherever you type the shortcut. I've tested it before and I know that you can have a long line of text as your short cut. You won't get a block (as in, the shortcut won't create with line breaks) but at least you'll get the information in your e-mail with two key strokes. Then, if need be, you could just insert a line break yourself to make a more "standard-looking" signature block.

    Yeah, it's a bit of a workaround. But, just a thought...

    This has been one of my complaints that I was hoping would be addressed in iOS 5, but sadly wasn't. Be glad you only have 5....I have about a dozen accounts all requiring different signatures. I haven't really found a workable solution so I have been mostly sticking to using email on my phone (my Android phone does let me have separate signatures per email account).

    Maybe someone has a better solution...perhaps a 3rd party email solution? I looked at one time but didn't really find anything. It's definitely a sorely lacking feature.

    I did look at using another client for email but you know it's too much trouble to sort it out and run a business... Very frustrating That a business man cannot use a separate signature on such a high tech device....


    APPLE Fail......
