Summary0004798: remove auto-added dashes from signature

sogo auto adds "-- " before the beginning of a signature: this disallows mail templates like:

"Dear ...


Some Address"

as it results with "-- " at the beginning

Additional Information

maybe just check if the signature already contains "-- ", if not, add it?

TagsNo tags attached.

Which is defined as Signature separator in RFC.
This helps clients like Thunderbird to remove those on replies.

"Dear..." isn't a signature at all.

What you want then is a template, not a signature.

Hey @Christian Mack, what about the dashes "--" that do get added before the signature. How do you actually disable them?

First those are two minus signs followed by a space, no dashes.

Second you don't want to disable them.
They say "here starts my signature", then follows the signature.

As I said before, if you do not want a signature, you don't have to use one.
But if you do use one, you do use one.

Easiest workaround for not having templates in SOGo is to copy some template into Drafts folder and use them from there.
