Description of problem:
When i compose a mail in evolution my .signature does not appears in the mail
body. There is just a "--" line with nothing under.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. evolution &
2. ctrl-n (for a new mail to send).
3. Select ".signature" for the "Signature:" entry
Actual Results: the file is not included.
Expected Results: I should see the ~/.signature file content
My ~/.signature file is not empty.
What did you set up in your signature preferences under
In Settings->Composer->Signature the .signature was an empty signature. So
evolution is surely consistent with itself.
But I think i understand : in evolution 1.0 (like in psyche), there was the
possibility to include a file as a signature. In evolution 1.2 there is no such
ability, instead you can execute a script and make its output as signature. Now,
I think it would be cool to have a default ".signature" signature that would
execute something like a simple `cat ~/.signature`.
In 1.0, all that setting to a file did was actually read the file in. The
default signature behavior in 1.2.x is a simple autogenerated signature. Any
changes to this would have to be made on an upstream level.
