yes, you can do it with mutt. if you set the signature like this:

  set signature = "foo|"

then, mutt will take the _output_ from the program 'foo' as signature
and not the file 'foo' itself.

i've written a small perl script 'randsig.pl' for this, get it at


ps: i know, that this job can also be done with a shell 3-liner ;)
