I currently have Gmail set up as my default account with Evolution. I have various signatures that I would like to use and select prior to sending specific emails. Is there a way to:

  1. Create a signature that isn't associated with a specific account
  2. Have the option to attach a specific signature, or no signature at all.

Currently I have a work signature, a joke signature, a "Sent from Ubuntu" signature, and a couple of social network signatures. Some of these are appropriate, but I wouldn't want to attach one of my joke signatures on a work email. Sometimes all I want to do is just send the email without a signature.

Is there a way to do this using Evolution?


Ok I get to answer my own question. This is actually a bug with evolution and v10.10 Here are a couple of work arounds that helped.

The problem occurred when updating from v10.4 to v10.10. Apparently this is considered a severe bug for business use of evolution.

Below is a screen shot with the problem. Note that the "From" line is missing. This also contains the signature dropdown selector. alt text

The link above describes setting up another email account using none@none as the email address. This is illustrated below. alt text

The result does allow for the "From" and "Signature" form element to be displayed and accessed. alt text

Now if I could only get some Reputation for my great answer! alt text
