When I hit reply my signature goes to the bottom of the received email...

  • So frustrating. When I hit reply my signature goes to the bottom - under the received message. How do I change that?

    I still want my signature on the reply message - but under my reply... Please help! Thank you and happy new year!

  • In the file accounts.ini you could edit the quote header to include your name and whatever on a line above the quote header itself (the part that says "On /date/, /sender name/ wrote:") It would be simple text - no HTML or graphics - but isn't hard.

  • Thank you - but this is for a business signature at the bottom of my email.

  • Business means graphical, or not?

  • In the file accounts.ini you could edit the quote header to include your name and whatever on a line above the quote header itself (the part that says "On /date/, /sender name/ wrote:") It would be simple text - no HTML or graphics - but isn't hard.

    Thanks for the tip. So does this mean the signature would be limited to only one line?

  • The header is not limited. Use C-style escapes, as in /n for newline, etc. There may be a maximum total length, but you probably wouldn't want a 15-line signature before the quoted text anyway.

  • Tried to edit the file, had no effect. Still only seeing the default signature.

  • Make sure Opera is closed when you edit the file. Also, make sure you edit the Reply= line under the [Account n] section in question.

    For example:

    Reply=\n\n\n-laingman\n\nOn %:Date:, %f wrote:
    

    If you then don't want the regular signature at the end of the message, unset it in the signature editor in the account's properties and manually enter a signature when you compose a new message.

  • Thanks guys. I got it for reply. So it seems like I would use the regular signature for compose and would want to set it to remove built in signature on reply. Right? To avoid having signatures all over the place

    I see a value for remove signaure on reply set to 0, I tried different values but none seem to work. Any one knows what this should be set to or if it even works.

    edit: I use auto hotkey to insert signature, but would be nice not to have to use that method for compose signature

  • Remove signature on reply is to remove their signature from the quoted text.

  • their signature

    And, 'their signature' is defined as 2 hyphens and a space ("-- ") and everything after it.
