how do I make thunderbird include the signature in the replies.
I have people use -- as their signature in their replies and the whole thread just gets cut-off when i reply to these people.

e.g.
hi blah,
--
replier

on date sender wrote:
.....

when i reply to this person all i have is

on date replier wrote:
hi blah

the rest of the thread is lost. how do i fix this behaviour?

I created a 'userContent.css' file in my 'chrome' subdirectory with the recommended text below, but my email messages are still greyed out. I have also experimented by changing the specified colors in the text, with no effect, so I believe these directives are not being referenced by Thunderbird. I restarted Thunderbird between changes to the 'userContent.css' file with the expection that was the way the get Thumberbord to reload all config files.

Any other suggestions?

/*

*/
.moz-txt-sig, .moz-signature {
color: black !important;
}
.moz-txt-sig > a, .moz-signature > a {
color: #0000FF !important;
}

To change your signature text from gray (or grey) to black, put this at the top of your signature HTML file:

<font color=black>

I don't think this is what most people want. See http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic ... 104#992925

I'd also like to be able to make reply quotes include everything after the sigdash, but for a different reason.

I take several mailing lists in digest form. The digests collect together several peoples' postings, including their signatures. If I want to reply to one of the messages, the quoting of the digest is often cut off because one of the middle messages contains a recognised sigdash. Likely as not, the entry I'm trying to reply to will fall after that, so I can't get it quoted.

I'm accustomed to the idea of having the entire digest quoted, and me removing the unneeded bits of the quoting. I really would rather decide that for myself, rather than having TB second-guessing me, often incorrectly.

(An alternative which I could get used to, though I wouldn't like it as much, would be a way whereby I could select (highlight) a portion of the message I want to reply to, and then have that selected bit quoted into my reply-composition window.)

WOW. This all seems so complex. I want to create a 'signature' that appears on every outbound email and includes a small graphic from my company. I have it stored as a word doc (I know that's probably wrong from reading the above) BUT how and where do I save it??
Here's what I would like it to "look" like:

This thread is not about adding a signature to your outgoing messages. Add a signature is not difficult, see this knowledge base article: http://kb.mozillazine.org/index.phtml?t ... Signatures

Sorry, I put it in the wrong place. I started a thread called SIGNATURE HELP NEEDED. My mistake. Some people use the link above and can get things to work - I haven't been able to get the answer I need.

I understand you can have Thunderbird attach a personal, but this should a .txt file. How do I add a signature in .sxw (OOo Writer) or .html?

Sorry, I mean: attach a personal signature -- forgot to type the most important term :-(

ok, so is there a way to edit code like this to make the signature always sit above the quoted reply text? TB seems to be working against me and will not allow any of my extra identities to keep their signatures ABOVE the quoted text???

One solution would be to stop top-posting and reply beneath a trimmed quote in accordance with traditional style.

Incidentally, Mozilla Mail / Thunderbird leave out the sig dash when you configure them to put the signature above the quotes. But top-posting still sucks.

Hi Jeroen,

as I read the forums I understand you have the right solution to solve the grey color signature problem. But although I use the code you provide it didn't work for me. I think my problem is I don't have a chrome folder under my profile of Thunderbird but I do have one under the Mozilla Firefox folder. I have inserted userContent.css file under the both folders but still not working. Any idea please.

Thanks,

Demir

.moz-txt-sig, .moz-signature {
  color: black !important;
}
.moz-txt-sig > a, .moz-signature > a {
  color: #0000FF !important;
}
