What do you have that crisp scalable logo for?

If the logo helps people recognize what comes from your organization, why not use it in your emails? — In a classy manner, of course, say in the signature.

Of course, not only logos can appear in your Mozilla Thunderbird signature. You can put your photo or maybe a funny animation in it, too, or just some decorative elements.

Whatever the purpose, whatever the image: adding a graphic to your signature is easy in Mozilla Thunderbird.
