You can change the signature automatically appended to emails in Outlook for iOS.

Outlook for iOS's Default Signature

"Sent from Outlook"—it is not easy to argue with the truth of the line Outlook for iOS automatically adds, by default, to the end of emails you write with it. Easily, though, you may dispute its originality, or efficacy in, say, promoting your ideas and business.

Your email signature should be truly yours: composed by you about yourself in your very words.

This, or at least the signature your employer wants you to employ.

Owning Your Outlook for iOS Email Signature

In either case, you need to edit the default signature set up by Outlook for iOS for your email accounts when you first installed it. Fortunately, this is not only possible and easy, you can also have Outlook for iOS use a different signature text for different accounts.
