My HTML signature for MacOS X Yosemite

To set a nice HTML signature in, you have to find the location of your signature in the Library folder.

For me, in Yosemite, the path was ~/Library/Mobile\ Documents/com\~apple\~mail/Data/MailData/Signatures.

The path could also be ~/Library/Mail/V7/MailData/Signatures (for Catalina)

The signature is located in a file that has the following pattern: ubiquitious_*.mailsignature

The HTML signature can be found below. Adopt to your liking. The file must be locked or Mail will overwrite.

Reverted SMB to use SMB1 as I saw many connection issues with SMB2.

echo "[default]" >> ~/Library/Preferences/nsmb.conf; echo "smb_neg=smb1_only" >> ~/Library/Preferences/nsmb.conf
smbd restart

  • Installed MacTex as a base system
  • Installed atom-latex which uses latexmk in the background
