Hi there, Although perhaps not a written standard, although I'm confident somebody once wrote this down, are E-mail clients who do it right adding "-- \n" in front of the signature. This way can receiving E-mail clients and mailing lists do something with the signature (for example, moving the personal signature lower, adding advertising or legal warnings).
Evolution is getting this right for text/plain signatures, but not for text/html ones. For the text/plain signature you don't need to add any such characters, Evolution will do this for you. For the text/html signature, you do (inconsistency). For E-mails where you send both the text/plain and the text/html MIME parts, you therefore can't really define it for your E-mails. Unless you change the text/html signature to contain this "-- \n" sequence and not add it to the text/plain. Or if you don't want it ... well you then can't really define the desired behaviour for the text/plain one (inconsistency++ + confusion). In any case, it's not consistent. Therefore confusing, and in my opinion therefore incorrect behaviour. ps. Since in HTML \n is not visible, I'd use "-- \n<br/>" -- Philip Van Hoof, freelance software developer home: me at pvanhoof dot be gnome: pvanhoof at gnome dot org http://pvanhoof.be/blog http://codeminded.be _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionfirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
