Signatures in 2.30.3 in new Ubuntu 10.10

Asked by Bob on 2010-10-26

I can't seem to find a way to add my custom signatures in a mail message after a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 which included the new Evolution 2.30.3.

I used a backup from the previous 2.28.3 version that came with Ubuntu 10.04 to restore my settings in the new 2.30.3. In the older version there was a "from" column at the top of the compose mail which has an area to select a signature to include. In the new version I find no way to include the "from" line.

If I create two accounts the button to add signatures shows up but I only use one account as I am sure many others do.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thanks, Bob.

Did I miss something? Has this been fixed or added?

Thanks, Bob.

Does this mean that the lack of a way to add a signature with just one account is a feature now?

Bob,

To add Signatures, go to Edit --> Preferences --> Composer Preferences
and click on the Signature tab.

This is not possible if you only have on account.

Bob,

I have no way of duplicating your problem. But I have no problem
accessing my signatures in the compose window. I have multiple
accounts, sorry.

You might want to file a bug for it.

Donato
