Thunderbird (Mac): Cloning an Email Footer

I have an footer from a co-worker, and need to make that mine, except for a few minor text changes.

How do I so this?

It's an HTML footer that contains an image.

Thanks.

Post back the header of the email. Need to check what email client is being used by your colleague first.

Is it a footer or a signature?
They are different things.
And, I take it you are using Thunderbird?

What does that mean to "post back the header of the email?" I assume you mean to display it in a browser. How do I do that?

I use Thunderbird on a Mac.

This is a signature, sorry for the confusion.

You should have him send you an email with the signature in it, select the signature (swipe mouse across it and down), copy it (CTRL-C), then follow these instructions to paste it into your own signature:

I would caution you that, these days, using an image or even HTML is a good way to have the email rejected by about a gazillion email services.  And, if you really want that image in yours, you'll have to save a copy of it on your Mac (and know where it is!) or you won't be able to use it.

P.S.  the real topic for this is "how do I copy a signature so I can use it in Thunderbird for Mac"

I  have the email in my inbox and copy the HTML, but only get clear text on the clipboard. I just beed to get at that HTML, but can not find how to do this.

Did you try pasting it into your Thunderbird signature? (You might get something different)
Or, try opening the email and choosing Save As, there may be an option for HTML.
Or, try pasting it into a document and see what you get.

When i save it as a HTML file, it create an eml file. When I click that, it open Outlook.

How do I just get the raw HTML of the email??
