Description (last modified by alec)

Hi,

I've looked for a resolution to this issue and I've not found one. When I use the signature option, two dashes are added to the email right above the signature. Is there a way to stop that from happening? It is a very annoying feature because when I end an email with a closing like "thanks," "Regards," I would like the next line have my signature, not dashes in one line then the signature in the next. The must be a way to remove that delimiter.

Thanks,

This is not a bug. Many email clients use "--" to detect your signature.
I think it is possible to make dashes optional (like in mutt 'sig_dashes').

I am using RoundCube through my isp with Cpanel. Can you be more specific as to where to look and what to change?

i meant "I think it is possible to make dashes optional in future". Sorry.

I have to delete the dashes every time I send and email and I find that rather annoying. I am not the only one who has complained about this issue (not a RoundCube issue I gather). It really should be an option. I'd rather type my signature than remove those annoying dashes ever time. Hope they come up with an options soon.

It is possible to make it so that the dashes don't show up.
If you go to the folder of roundcube you must change in the file: ../program/js/apps.js
You search for "---" you will find only one time 3 dashes after each other in the code.
Now you delete make sure that you delete the --- en the 2 dashes that comes right behind it.
But only delete the dashes so you will remain the "".
Now the dashes will not appear when you create a new message or when you response to one.

Hope i explained it well enough and it will help you.

I've created this attached patch to remove the dashes from the signature, works both for plain text and HTML messages. Just download the raw patch file (click the down arrow next to the patch name above) into the root folder of the roundcube installation and apply with "patch -p0 < rcube_remove_sig_dashes.diff". Works with roundcube 0.8.2.

Any update on this feature? Gmail has now introduced the ability for users to select to remove the "---" delimiter.
