Post by: MMScotto on December 02, 2020, 05:48:40 PM
I know this has been posted before... but since the explanation link doesn't seem to apply to my version....
How do I remove the signature with my version??

Please check images below to see the difference...

Open the menu, go to settings, and then just type "email" into the search. It's in the core protection under mail shield - they really buried it!

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "How do I remove the signature with my version"

That Cog icon should open the Settings and works on my installation.

If you are talking of removing the signatures in emails - they should be off by default I believe.
You should be able to get to these settings by an other route.  AvastUI > Menu > Settings > Protection - Core Shields - Mail Shield and uncheck the 'Add a signature to the end of sent emails' option.

If you can't get to it that way try an Avast Repair.

  I had to delete it, reinstall it and repair it 3 times for the stupid cog on the side to finally become clickable.    :o
Also, apparently the signature is on by default, at least in my case.
