I've just finished an install of Gnome on Mandriva 2009. First time I've
used Gnome and Evolution so pardon some probably simple questions.

1. I use a script for my signature. In all other MTA's I've used there
is a -- before the signature, I don't see that here in Evolution.
Where/how is it added? BTW, I added the -- manually on the below sig.

KeyID 0xE372A7DA98E6705C Live - The Rolling Stones - I can't get no

The character sequence should be '-- '  i.e. two dashes and a space -
that's the standard sig separator that MUAs recognise (and hence why
your sig wasn't recognised as such by the mailling list software).

You need to include the sig separator as part of your signature, Evo
doesn't add it for you.  The sig script you use needs to output in HTML
so that the editor can format it correctly, so one of the shell scripts
I use starts:

        echo "-- <br>"
        echo "Pete&nbsp;Biggs<br>"


Doesn't make any sense why should I put HTML tags in a linux script?

echo "KeyID 0xE372A7DA98E6705C"
if [ -p /tmp/xmms-info ] ; then echo "Live - $( grep Title: /tmp/xmms-info | 
awk -F': ' '{print $2}' )"


Kmail automatically adds the -- which I'm having to use for this message since 
Evolution has suddenly decided to lockup when trying to either reply to a 
message or write a new message. Another question is why doesn't Evolution show 
a new message count as they come in? I'm using an IMAP account on my local box 
along with fetchmail and procmail. In Kmail when a new post comes into one of 
the folders the message count shown changes but not in Evolution. Though I'm 
more concerned with the lockup right now. Another issue with using Kmail in 
Gnome is that for some reason I can't sign messages, I get a "signing failed, 
bad passphrase" though I can sign them using Evo, but Kmail works fine in KDE.
