    Hello,

    To create and have a selection of signatures available you can download the Quicktext add-on for Mozilla Thunderbird.

    To download and install the Quicktext add-on please follow these steps:


    • Download the Quicktext add-on and save the file to your desktop.
    • Open Thunderbird and select Add-ons from the Tools menu.
    • Now click Install and select the Quicktext XPI file from your desktop.
    • Select Install Now and click Restart Thunderbird after the installation completes.
    To create your signatures:

    • Select Quicktext from the Tools menu.
    • Add a group called "Signatures"
    • Create as many templates as you like with descriptive titles such as "Home" and "Work"
    • Edit the content of the templates and save them when done.
    The next time to start to compose a new e-mail you can select the signature you want to use by clicking the name of the template in the menu bar just above the body of the e-mail.

    You can also use quicktext to create other text phrases that you frequently use, for example answers to frequently asked questions.

    Thanks for the info. That is not what I am looking for. I like fancier signatures like the one I have here. Is there any way to do that? :confused:

    No problem! Here are the steps to create an HTML signature:


    • Open a text editor such as Microsoft Word that can save an HTML file.
    • Create your signature content
    • Select Save As from the File menu, name the file, and set the document type to HTML Document before saving.
    • Open Thunderbird
    • Select Account Settings from the Tools Menu
    • Click on your identity, it's the name of the account in the top left of the current window.
    • Check the box for Attach this Signature and choose the HTML signature file that you created.
    The next time you start a new e-mail the HTML signature will be attached!
