    I seem to have a bit of a problem. For some odd reason, each time I add a signature to Mail.app, to one of the accounts or the global list, the next time I go to start Mail.app ALL of them are gone. I have tried the usual remove all the plists for Mail.app, but for some reason I am thinking I missed one somewhere. I have done the following:

    cd Library
    rm -rf Mail
    rm -rf Caches/Mail/
    rm -rf Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist

    Which basically should reset it back to 0, and it is a no go. Any other hints would be helpful!

    ~/Library/Mail/Signatures is where the signatures are kept, but you've already wiped that out with removing Mail from the Library directory.

    you checked your disk capacity and inodes? sounds like its just not able to write the signatures file
