Hmm, not sure if I understand you correctly:

Does Thunderbird not offer an option to NOT remove anything below the
standard sig dashes ("-- ")? I'm not using Thunderbird, so I really don't
know that. But hard to believe that it does have no such option.

But if it does have such option, why not simply enabling it...?

Anyway, am I seeing it correct that the three-dash sig separator is not a
standard then, but just a sort of, hmm, workaround for DAUs (please don't
ask what a DAU is, too hard to explain ;-))?
