Hi all,

I have the same problem. Actually, Evolution does not save properly the signature type in gconf database. If you create an HTML signature using Evolution preferences, the signature will be correctly rendered in any new mail until you restart Evolution. After the restart, the signature is considered as plain text and the HTML code appears.

A workaround is to launch gconf-editor and then modify the key /apps/evolution/mail/signatures (which contains the list of signatures used by evolution) the following way :

1. Find the problematic signature in the list.
2. Change "format" attribut of tag "signature" from "text/plain" to "text/html".

Note: If you modify the signature afterwards using Evolution preferences, the signature type will stay text/html.
