    Yes. Go to Settings/Mail, Contacts,Calendars/Signature and you can input a signature for each mail account.

    Unfortunately, you can't personalize a signature with different colors/fonts - not in the native Mail app. Other have used othe e-mail apps (like the Gmail one) for that reason. I've also see someone who's created a photo of a nice signature which they then attach to their e-mail.

    But, no, the Mail app is pretty limited in that respect. Sorry.

    You can change the font of your signature if you wish however the recipient may not see the change, depending on what mail server they are using. I regularly change my font in the body of the email as well and to date nobody has told me of a problem. Download an app called AllFonts it's free from the App Store. Open it and delete their sample text. Type 'Hello' or any word you feel like. Select a font and then copy your word. Open your mail app and paste your word in as the first word. The chosen font will remain until you add a picture or insert copy etc, if it changes back to standard just paste another sample of the font again. You can edit the first word and stay in the selected font unless you backspace one space past the first letter. I am on Gmail which works well with this and I usually use Noteworthy Bold for my text and Snell Roundhand for my signature. I did a screen capture sample to demonstrate.

    Oh yes, and I have nothing to do with or affiliated to the AllFont app.

    Actually, you can customize your signatures with fonts, colors, links, or pretty much anything you can do with HTML.

    What you can't do is actually edit/create the HTML signature directly. Instead you have to create it somewhere else, then paste it into Mail's settings; not the code, but the results.

    An article I just read recommends the Nitro HTML app (free).

    Another method that works is to create your signature in another mail app that allows HTML signatures, mail to yourself, copy it from Mail when you receive it on the iPad, then paste it into your settings.

    This is another of the new (unsung) iOS 6 features.

    Note: I have not actually tested this myself so my details may be a bit off.

    I've been playing a bit with Nitro HTML, and it's not for people who don't know HTML. There is bound to be a better tool for creating HTML signatures somewhere.

    On the other hand I did manage to create a simple HTML sig (bold, underline, email and website links) that worked in Mail.
