Not quite... I was trying to get part way towards what I think might be
a better .signature setup which ultimately could act something like this:
1. if no .signature file exists, don't display the Signature button on
2. if a .signature file exists within the folder where the
compose/reply/forward is originating from, use that one.
3. otherwise, use the account's specified default .signature.
 or... while still respecting the "Automatically insert signature"
option, provide a Signature dropdown to allow picking either the
folder's or account's .signature (or 2 buttons)
All notwithstanding the use of templates which could co-exist with such a

From everything I can see:
/home/pfortin/Mail/Linux/claws-mail is the same directory|folder as
but, I still can't get at the latter... probably some subtle syntactical
issue I keep tripping over...
Doh!!! OS!! os.listdir() works on the former; but not the latter for
[now] obvious reasons... <red-faced>
Would this require replicating the os module functions, such as:
clawsmail.listdir() etc...? Or... could os.<function>() be hinted
to use #mh/Mailbox as a "symlink" to /home/pfortin/Mail?
Not asking for implementation, just trying to grok better... :)
Don't suppose there's a way to copy a file, such as:
#mh/Mailbox/Linux/claws-mail/.signature into a compose window at will..?
