In TB 38, when I send an e-mail and then go to the "Sent" folder and forward it again, I get the same signature twice and two blank lines below the bottom signature.

I have tested it in TB 45 beta 2, and one of the signatures disappears (good) but I still get a blank line below the bottom signature (I know it is better one than the usual two lines, but it could be fixed).

See the screenshot attachment.

Not sure what you're doing.

If you forward, whether or not you get a signature depends on the account setting:
Include signature in forwards.

If you have that chosen, and first write an e-mail and then forward it from the "Sent" folder, you get two signatures, in TB 38 and TB 47 (Earlybird). TB 45 beta 2 is irrelevant since the final version will be beta 3.

I don't know how you produce the blank line after the original signature. I don't see any additional extra lines.

Please looks at your options again and try with TB 47:

You'd also have to post the exact signature you're using.

Find attached the signature for you to test.

Sorry, you need to show the *definition* of your signature, that is, the HTML you're using. You need to copy it from the account settings.

As I said, you claim to only get one signature when you send a message, then forward it. So you have signatures switched off for forwards? Show me you're configuration:

Options > Account Settings, Main *and* Composition.

Jörg K!

I was bathing and missed you on IRC.

Here is a screenshot of the settings.

To reproduce the blank line below the signature do this:
1) Use the signature PNG in your message;
2) Send an e-mail to me or someone else using the signature;
3) Go to the "Sent" folder and select "Forward" in the message;
4) Voilá: a blank line at the bottom.

Please tell me if this helps.


Kind regards from the "cola demon".

Strange, I was looking at the 3rd window screenshot and all checkboxes are unticked, however pressing ENTER adds a paragraph.

I installed TB 45 beta 2 over TB 38.7 beta and I am not sure if this makes the settings blank.

No blank line to be seen.

Using the steps from comment #4 and attaching the image as signature I don't see a blank line when forwarding.

I repeat: I am using TB 47 (Earlybird) which has the functionality the final release of TB 45 will have. DO NOT USE TB 45 beta 2 for this test.

You are right!

TB 47 alpha 2 fixes the bug... I have just tested it!
