Add an Image to Thunderbird Signature

To insert an image into your signature in Mozilla Thunderbird:

Start with a new, empty message using HTML formatting.
In the message's body, create your signature the way you want it to look.
Insert the image.
------------------------
     Create a new message in Mozilla Thunderbird.
     Position the cursor where you want the image to appear in the body of the email.
     Select Insert | Image from the menu.
     Use the Choose File... selector to locate and open the desired graphic.
           o If your image is larger than some 640x640 pixels, consider shrinking it to more handy proportions.
     Type a short textual description of the image under Alternate text:.
           o This text will appear in the plain text version of your email. People who choose to see only this version can still get an idea of where the image — which is still available as an attachment — appears.
     Click OK.
     Continue editing your message.

------------------------
Go to the image insertion dialog's Link tab to link your image to a web page.
     * Select File | Save As | File... from the message's menu.
Make sure HTML Files is selected under Format:.
Enter "signature.html" (or something similar) under Save As:.
Click Save.
Close the message window, not saving the draft.

     * Go to the account's root item.
     * Make sure Attach this signature: is checked.
     * Click Choose....
     * Find and highlight the "signature.html" file just created.
     * Click Open.
