?I e-mailed a suggestion to Google a few months back, saying that it would be useful if we had extended options related to our GMail signatures. Currently, everything I have is forwarded to my GMail account, I have about a dozen, probably more e-mail addresses, and about 4 external POP accounts that I fetch my e-mails from. At the time, I asked for the possibility of having different signatures for every account, based on our preferences (obvious required feature if you ask me), the possibility of having images in our signatures as well as HTML code, and the option of having the e-mail signature above the reply (by default, the signature was placed at the bottom, below everything). Well, as I did expect, they never replied, but today I stumbled upon an interesting Firefox extension called "Better GMail". I strongly recommend you to use it if you're a Firefox user. Not only for the signature features, but it has many extra options you can configure. You can even change your GMail's theme if you like. Anyway, back on track, my requirements were solved. With this plugin, you will be able to add HTML code in your signature, and you can use images (remotely uploaded to a FTP then referred to using the HTML code). As for the above quote signature, there's a checkbox for that under Gmail Settings that solves the issue. Overall it's a pretty good extension. Too bad you have to configure it for every PC you're using, since it's browser-based and not located in any way in your GMail account. See the two useful links below if you're willing to try this extension and when you do, I'll be more than happy to hear back your opinions.James K.
