How to Create a Signature in Mozilla Thunderbird

Creating a signature in Mozilla Thunderbird isn't as simple as typing one into the program, but it's not hard to do. Follow these steps to create and upload a signature into Mozilla Thunderbird so you can share it with all of your contacts.

Step 1

Decide on your signature's content. Many people like to include links to their business and personal contact information like title, address, phone number and instant messenger username. While the options are limitless, a simple closing with your name also works.

Step 2

Launch the Notepad application or any other text editor.

Step 3

Type your signature in the text editing program. To create a simple signature, type your content as you want it to appear. Code it in HTML if you want a more dynamic signature. Be sure to include all the appropriate tags.

Step 4

Save your new signature. If the signature file contains only a plain signature, save it as a text file. Save HTML signatures as HTML files.

Step 5

Open Thunderbird. Select Tools and Account Settings from the program's menu. Click on your account's email address. Check the Attach This Signature option, click Choose, browse your hard drive for your signature file and attach it by pressing Open. Click OK in the Account Settings panel to save your changes.

Step 6

Test your signature by sending an email to another email address. Checking that your signature works before using it with your contacts is a sensible safeguard.

Step 7

Enjoy sending email with a signature.
