How do I choose font, point size and color for my e-mail signature?

I want to use a signature in Trebuchet font, 12 pt, blue colour. I have tried to do this using all the methods you appear to offer but, when I create an e-mail, none of them produce the signature I expect and it always seems to differ in appearance from the main text of the message. It seems impossible to choose the point size and, occasionally, even the font is not available.

I do not understand how to write html script, so this option gives additional problems.

Can you help, please?

No, I have re-ticked the "Compose messages in html format" box. I have found a way to work around the problem but it is somewhat messy and unnecessarily time-consuming.

I every way but this, I find Thunderbird superior to MS Outlook but I could change the way my messages looked and worked in Outlook much as I could in MS Word and that is really what I want to be able to do. I now accept that I probably can't do that in Thunderbird but will continue to use it rather than Outlook.

Thank you everyone for your attempts to resolve my problem - much appreciated.

The information in this question included info regarding not just how an email looks for you, but also what it may look like to recipients, which is not necessarilly the same thing.

As an example, I restrict the fonts to use ones I prefer to read.

I would at the very least check to see what your email looks like in Plain Text mode to make sure contact information is still displayed.

eg: hold down 'Shift' when you click on 'Write' to get a temporary Plain Text Write window to check the signature.
