Thunderbird and signature

I am trying to include my company info and etc. to my e-mails that I send out but thunderbird adds it as a signature file. How can I have thunderbird add it or better said intergrate it to my e-mails so it is part of the e-mail and not an attachment or a vcard?

just make a .txt file with your favorite editor and know were you save it. then in TB you can tell it were the .txt file is and it will add the signature to every e-mail it sends.

Create the file, point Thunderbird at it and then compose a message. your signature will appear at the bottom of the message right below the special indicator for signature field, referred to as the "Sig-marker" '--'


Your Name
Your Company
Your address

1 800 867-5309
The formatting of the sig block is prescribed somewhat more firmly: it should be displayed as plain text in a fixed-width font (no HTML, images, or other rich text), and must be delimited from the body of the message by a single line consisting of exactly two hyphens, followed by a space, followed by the end of line (i.e., "-- \n"). This latter prescription, which goes by many names, including "sig dashes", "signature cut line", and "sig-marker", allows software to automatically mark or remove the sig block as the receiver desires. A correct delimiter is required for a news posting program to receive the Good Netkeeping Seal of Approval.
