How to setup an iPhone to always send in HTML


By default, an iPhone will always send new messages in Plain Text unless any formatting has been applied to the text.

If formatting has been applied to the text, such as making the text bold or italic, then it will send the message in HTML.  

Follow these steps to set the default signature on the iPhone to bold or italic (so that all messages sent will be in HTML):

  1. On the iPhone tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars then scroll down to the Signature section.
  2. Tap Signature and then tap and hold on your current signature and tap Select All.
  3. Tap the > arrow and then select the BU button.
  4. As required, make the text bold or italic, then tap Mail.. at the top left of the screen to save the settings.

With these changes, any emails sent from your iPhone that include this signature will be sent in HTML. This implies that Mail Disclaimers can apply the HTML version of your signature to the message.

How does this work?

IPhone by default sends all emails as Plain Text. Plain text emails do not support inline images so images appear as attachments.

by creating a blank signature with a Bold or underline character we trick the Mail app to create the signature in the more common HTML format that supports more dynamic emails

Too much hassle there is another option.

The above issue is unique to the mac built-in Mail app switching to Outlook will also resolve this issue!
