Follow these steps to create an email signature in Thunderbird:

  1. Compose a new blank email message and type in your signature information.
  2. Go to the File menu and select Save As -> File.
  3. Give the file a name like Signature and put it in a place where it can stay and you can locate it in the next steps.
  4. Close the message with your signature.
  5. Go to the Tools menu and select Account Settings.
  6. Check the box that reads 'Attach this signature...'
  7. Click the Choose button and navigate to the file you created in steps 2 and 3.

Now each message you compose should include the signature you created.  You can optionally delete the text of the signature on a per-message basis.
