Application of the Critical Theory
How to make your own signature file -- A signature file is a simple block of text that gets appended to your E-mail file every time you send an E-mail message. It can contains things like your name, title, address, E-mail address, or any other thing you want to express. To create a signature file using one of the expressions on the preceeding page, print this page out and follow the steps below.
- High-light the expression you like by holding down the left button on the Rat (or as it is more commonly known mouse) at the beginning of the text and drag the curser to the end of the expression.
- Let go of the button.
- Hold down the "Ctrl" key on the key board and hit the letter "C". This will copy the expression you have just high-lighted.
- Click the "Start" button.
- Click "Run".
- In the text box next to the word "Open:" type the word "notepad" and press the "Enter". This will load and run a simple text editing program.
- In Notepad, hold down the "Ctrl" key on the key board and hit the letter "V". This will copy the expression you have just high-lighted into Notepad program.
- Click File.
- Click "Save As". Give your file a name (for example mysign.txt) and save it in the Windows directory or Windows folder.
- Now close Notepad by clicking the "X" on the top right corner of the Notepad window.
Now your half way done. All you need to do is inform Netscape to use your signature file when you sent E-mail.
- In Netscape Communicator click "Edit".
- Click Preferences.
- Double click on "Mail and Groups".
- Now click on "Identity".
- In the text box labeled "Signature File:" type "c:\windows\" and the name you gave the file. For our example it would be "c:\windows\mysign.txt" without the quotes.
- Then click the "Ok" button.
And now your done. Every time you send a E-mail your sigature file will be attached at the bottom of the message. Try it out, send yourself an E-mail message.
