Re: [Evolution] Signature Files and HTML by default

I just don't think evolution should manage anyones signatures. If it
ends up becoming a "must-have" feature, then I'd wager it'd be a super
low priority item.

Fair enough. What are your thoughts on incorporating a signature editor
into the druid though? Does that seem like a valid idea, be it a low
priority one?

I don't like this way at all. I think that the code converts the
signature to HTML if it needs to be in HTML format, and if it doesn't
then it should be easy to do.

Would it not be a good idea to have Evolution's mail account druid
search the user's home directory for a .signature file and then if
found, show it in an editable dialog box with their current signature,
and if not found the dialog box is empty. If the dialog box is empty,
then they can create a signature, or leave it blank. When saved it
creates both a ~/evolution/.signature_<account1>.txt and
~/evolution/.signature_<account1>.html. For each new account, it creates
two new signature files. Delete an account and those signature files are

This happens when you have checked HTML by default, and you have
previously selected a .txt file for signature:

you tried to compose a new message and evo warns he can't find file
<you-had-selected>.html. The new window message opens without any

I think evo should try to open the file you just specified, or maybe evo
should save a copy of the signature always in html and parse it to .txt
when necessary.

Except that Evolution doesn't create the signature files, you do.

There is a fix for this and I presume that it's currently using it if
it's attaching the signature...
