    Default [SOLVED] Disabling the two dashes in the signature.


    My co-worker doesn't have two dashes preceding her automatic signature, but I do. The dashes are not part of my signature, but I cannot find an option to remove them.

    Apparently they are part of the standard Internet signature guidelines according to this article (page 13 under Setting Your User Options : Mail Tab). Whatever. They bug me, but I cannot find the option to remove them.

    I'm new to Zimbra. The login screen on the Internet states "Zimbra Collaboration Suite" if that helps. A screen shot of my Zimbra screen is included for reference. I select Preferences, and then search under all the tabs for anything, including the Signature and Accounts tabs, but nothing.

    Can anyone help remove the dashes?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forums,

    There's a attribute on your account, that it seems we don't expose it in end-user preferences anymore, set to 'internet' which needs to get it set to type 'outlook' (ironic).

    About the fastest way to correct this (short of having you do a SOAP ModifyPrefsRequest) may be to have an admin run this on your account:
    zmprov ma zimbraPrefMailSignatureStyle outlook

    Or a an admin/domain admin can use the admin console to un-check the box in COS/Account > Preferences tab> "Use standard Internet signature style"

    So we know what version you're running you can type this in the main search bar:
    $set:get version

    2nd option is what I did. I have no idea how Eric's particular account got set this way since the COS isn't set to that as default.

    Anyway he's one of my users and it was a quick fix. Consider it solved.

    On a side note, we're using 5.0.9 NE on Ubuntu 6 as of this mornings update.

    I unchecked the "User standard Internet signature" in the admin on the user's account. That appeared to do nothing, or at least that setting did not get read/pushed to his ZDesktop. There is no setting for removing the two dashes within ZDesktop. Should the zmprov command also make the change to ZDesktop?

    Thanks in advance.
