How can I upload a gif file as my email signature?

Posted

Hi, everyone!

I hired a great graphic designer to create an email signature for my business. He did a great job - he animated my logo and my clients love it! (It is a gif file).

I switched email app (from the Mac Mail app to Thunderbird), but can't figure out how to upload the gif as my default email signature. Apparently, only text and image work.

Is this correct? Anyone figure out a way around this?

Thanks so much everyone. (Mind you, I am pretty bad a technology, but really trying here.)

Chosen solution

Open Tools/Account Settings, select the account in the left pane, check the box 'Attach the signature from a file...' in the right pane, then click Choose... and select the .gif file. The animation won't show when you compose a message, but it will for the recipient, as you can verify by saving the message as a draft and viewing it in the Drafts folder (or viewing a sent message).
