Strange that you should ask this question today - but with me it has
nothing at all to do with Evolution.
I've been off-line for close to 36 hours and got back online earlier
today; there were some upgrades (to 10.04.1). I use Thunderbird (and
have been for years and years).
Anyway, I went to reply to a couple of posts and found that my signature
line was one which I used some weeks ago and not the one I have used a
couple of days ago.
I found this strange, and cannot explain it. I've since altered the sig.
line to the one you see below and its been working fine since I altered
it. But why the previous one suddenly altered I cannot explain.
A coincidence? Little spotty maroon-coloured men in spaceships? Who
