My HTML signature for MacOS X Yosemite Mail.app

To set a nice HTML signature in Mail.app, 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/V6/MailData/Signatures

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.

You can use SVG instead of img. It will display normally in almost all mail clients: http://sharingbuttons.io. And your mail will load faster ;)
