Likewise, attempting to reply to this message with quoting enabled will NOT quote the message. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Send a mail to yourself with the first line as '--' and some text thereafter. 2. View the message--it's all greyed out. 3. Enable auto quoting of replies. Click the reply button. Actual Results: The contents of the composition are simply: [sender] wrote: Expected Results: If the first line of the file is '--', assume that this is NOT a signature and do not grey out the message. Replying with quoting enabled will quote the entire message. Workaround: select the entire greyed-out message, then paste-as-quotation within your reply.
(this is thunderbird 1.0 btw)
Do you mean '--' or '-- '? Only '-- ' is seen as valid signature sign ('--' is only produced by broken mail clients). If you mean '-- ', i still don't think there should be a excerpt from the treat-as-signature rule here. Maybe someone wants to send a empty mail with his signature to hisself to do some testing?
You're right, it's '-- ' not '--'. I've sent emails to myself to confirm this. Why someone would send an email like this, I have no idea, but I received one.
