How to use signatures in your favourite mail program.

Many people have written asking how to add a signature file to their email messages. In a desperate bid to avoid a life full of repetitious response, I've created this page. Let's hope it works!

Help! If you use an email program that isn't listed here, please send me a note with the directions, and I'll add it. Many people will appreciate it. Thanks!
