With Thunderbird, it is very easy to add custom signatures, and you can put just about anything you want in them. There are some things to take note of though..Often other email clients, or 'free' web based email sites such as Hotmail and Yahoo, dont render the Thunderbird signatures correctly. In fact, if you want your emails to show up indentically as you have sent them from Thunderbird, then you pretty much have to go through a paid email service such as the one your ISP will provide you, AND the recipient needs to be using Thunderbird as well. This behaviour also applies to other email clients such as Incredimail. I am not sure regarding Outlook Express as I have never used it, but I am inclined to think the same thing would apply.Additionally, Thunderbird, Outlook Express, Incredimail etc do not work on the free email accounts. If you want to use an email client to access Hotmail and its derivatives, Yahoo, and probably GMail too (thought I am not sure on that one)then you have to pay them for the privilege by subscribing to an upgraded account.I have just tried to add an image to a signature on an old Yahoo email account of mine, and the option certainly exists to do it. However, I created a signature, including a small image, and sent a test email to one of my other email accounts, and only the text portion came through. There was no sign of any image ever having been there. I suspect that if I sent an email from this Yahoo account to another Yahoo account though, the signature would have worked properly.
