Opera Mail: Signature position on replies

  • After a day and a half trying to repair Windows Live Mail ... and failing ... I've downloaded and begun using Opera Mail. Everything looks fine but when replying to an email I would prefer my message to go at the top of the thread rather than the bottom. Is there anyway I can do this to include a pre-programmed signature? Thanks, Keva

  • Opera doesn't support this. However, there is a plain text workaround.

    Close down Opera and edit accounts.ini in the mail folder. See "Help -> About Opera Mail" for the location.

    Under the section for the account in question, change:

    Reply=On %:Date:, %f wrote:


    \n\n-Your first name\n\nReply=On %:Date:, %f wrote:

    for example. \n is like pressing ENTER. Do the same thing for Forward= if you want. Just don't use "-- " (two hyphens and a space) anywhere in there.

    Then, in the signature editor on the outgoing tab in the account's properties, you have a choice. You can clear that signature if you don't want an extra (real) signature at the bottom. But, when composing a new message, you'll have to manually type a signature.
