No newlines in signature (*nix)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: mozilla-thunderbird

My signature file - that is formated with \n newlines, since i use Linux - is copyed to the emails without the newlines. (probably the routine that attaches the signature to the message is expecting \r\n newlines)

This happens also in ubuntu 9.04

I compared the message code between the one generated by kmail and thunderbid. There is one header that differs. In kmail the header is:

Content-type: text/plain

which leads to a correct formating

The header created by thunderbird is:

Content-type: text/plain

Here all the newlines of the signature a are lost.

already found the solution. You have to set the mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed property to false.

This still happens in version of Thunderbird (17.0.7) released to Ubuntu Precise, both 64 & 32 bit.
PS How do I set the mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed property to false?
