Thunderbird mail signature file

You are always telling people to use Thunder Bird Mail instead of Outlook Express, so I switched to it. Now I can't find in the help files just how to attach my old signature file. I know it can be done because your emails have this. Thanks for your help.

As I remember it is just about the same as Outlook Express, just harder to find out just how to ad it. Here is your answer:

If you are using Windows:

1. Click the Start button, then click Run.
2. In the Run window that appears, type notepad and then press OK.
3. Use the open Notepad window to create your signature. Design your signature to appear exactly the way you want it to look in Thunderbird.
4. Once you have created you signature you will need to save it. Click File on the Notepad main menu and select Save. A window will appear that will allow you to name and select a location to save your signature. We suggest saving the signature somewhere you can easily find it (like My Documents), but not somewhere where it is always visible and in the way (like your desktop.)
5. In Thunderbird, click Tools on the main menu, then select Account Settings from the list that appears. A window will appear that will allow you to update your account information.
6. In Account Settings, click the check box next to "Attach this signature:".
7. Next, click the Choose button located to the right of the field just below the "Attach this signature" button. Select the signature file you created and then press Open.
8. Choose OK from the original Account Settings window.

Your signature will now be added to all outgoing messages in Thunderbird. To make any further changes to the signature, all you have to do is edit the signature file. This also means that if you delete the signature file, the signature will no longer appear in your Thunderbird email messages.

Nothing to it !
Thanks for your question,
