Creating a Signature File

A signature file is a file that is automatically appended to the bottom of every email message you send. In order to use a signature file with Thunderbird, you must first create the signature in Windows Notepad and then save the file on your Local computer. 

After you have created a signature file, you will need to setup Thunderbird to refer to the location of the signature file: click Tools > Account Settings. In the window that appears, under the Default Identity section, check Attach this signature, and then click Choose…. Using the Choose File window which appears, browse to the location of your signature file, select it, and then click Open. The Choose File window will close and the path to your signature file should be shown in the textbox beside the Choose button in Account Settings. Click OK to save and exit Account Settings. Try sending a message to yourself to see how the signature looks.

A Sample Signature:

* First name Last name, Department,
* Ryerson University                       
* Toronto, Ontario, Canada.          
* Phone: (416)979-5000 ext. 9999
