Description Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2013-09-05 02:23:49 EDT
Description of problem:
I sent out a mail. It went with one of my signatures "A". When I want to send the same mail to someone else, the mail will have the signature from the first sending, and include another signature. Therefore, the mail becomes





Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Send mail with signature
2.Resend mail to another receiver or forward it 

Actual results:
Signature duplicated

Expected results:
Signature should not be duplicated

Additional info:
I'm not sure if this is a RFE or a bugreport really. 

I found something similar here:

This says it was fixed in 3.6.2, but I still see it. 

Is it possible to please detect that a signature is already present and another one does not need to be added?

I haven't filed it upstream yet since I'd like at least one more person to confirm the bug.

Thanks for a bug report. You are right, there is lost an information about the signature, thus evolution doesn't recognize it, thus it adds a new, which results in duplicated signatures in an email. This is already filled upstream as [1]. Please see it for any further updates.
