Looking to setup a Thunderbird email signature that includes both an image and text? The video above or the guide below will give you “How To” instructions.
If you have a signature of any kind, the first step is to remove your current signature.
After opening Thunderbird go to your email account settings. The quickest way to do this is to click the lock+envelope icon that has your email address next to it. It should be located on the top of the side menu panel.
Next under the “Accounts” section, click “View settings for this account”.
A window will pop up which will show you your current signature. Mine currently has a image. And if I remove that will use my signature text. But it won’t allow us to use both. So let’s remove both options by unchecking them and clear the file path. And then click “OK”. If these were blank and unchecked to begin with, great. Leave them so and click “ok”.
The next step is to create a new message by clicking the “write” button. Here we are going to create the signature exactly how we want it to appear.
To insert your image, click “insert > image”. Choose the file from your computer, and be certain to type an alt text. Leave “attach this image to message checked”. Click Ok.
Then type your text and style it exactly how you want it to appear.
After you have gotten your signature to look exactly how you want it, the next step is to save this email draft as a file. To do so, click “file > save as > file”. Select (and remember) the location or folder you wish to save the file in on your computer. Name the file, and click save. Now close the message window. Save if you want to, otherwise click “Don’t Save”.
Now go to the account settings again, click the lock+envelope icon that has your email address next to it. Again, it should be located on the top of the side menu panel. Click “View settings for this account” found under the “Accounts” section.
Next check the box for “Attach the signature from a file instead (text, HTML, or image)”, then click “choose”. Now locate and select the file on your computer that you just saved a moment ago. Once you have located it, select your file and click “open”, and then finally click “OK”. You should now have your email signature with both your image and text. Create a new message to confirm it worked.
