I believe the Avast signature only appears in emails sent or received via a email client, such as Thunderbird or Outlook (not webmail, though).

No, avast can insert it in webmail as that goes through the web shield not the mail shield. That was introduced a few program updates ago and there were many complaints about it being inserted into web mail.

Since it had never been in web mail when people started seeing it they wanted a way to disable it as disabling it in the mail shield didn't work.  That is where the new setting was introduced in the avastUI > settings > General, so users didn't have to disable it from two different locations.

I see. Thank you for correcting me. :)

I just tested it by turning the signature on, rebooting and sending  a test email.
I also don't see the Avast signature.
I'll alert Avast to this topic.

@ Bob
Was that a gmail (web mail) test or another web mail service.

I don't really use web mail, whilst I do have a gmail account. I haven't compiled any emails I just use it so I can get notified about emails on my 'Google' Nexus 6P phone.

It is not important at all and if you really want avast in your signature, just set in your mail settings.

I think this is what Eddy is talking about:
