Pegasus Mail has had variable signatures since 1991. It's slightly arcane - you have to prepare them in a specific format then compile the file using the Pegasus Mail resource compiler, rescom, but it's not that big a deal. Look up "variable signatures" in the help file.
Doing it from a plain text file would be quite a bit more complicated[/quote]
There are two extensions I know of that greatly ease the handling of custom tag lines for Pegasus Mail
- Leon Salter's Plato - http://home.zonnet.nl/l.salters/
- BitBuilt Software's Thalia - http://www.bitbuilt.net/thalia.html
Both are free tools that allow you to store your quotes as plain text files, then compile them into a Pegasus Mail compatible resource file by clicking a button. Plato works within Pegasus Mail as an extension, and Thalia is an external application.
Thanks for all the suggestions Rob. Dawn works great but I can't seem to get Plato to work. It installed fine and the icon appears on the toolbar but it just doesn't pick the line from the file.
Also, pegasus is installed as the default mail client and it fires up just fine when clicking a mailto link but a MSIE popup keeps reporting that it's not installed properly even though it is working.
