I don't know what mail client is involved here (missed the rest of the thread),
but don't most mail clients allow you to run a command to generate the sig per
message? ie. Sylpheed, Evo, K-Mail, etc.

Also, you can use the built in functionality of 'fortune' and create your own
fortune files, this is the howto I used:


Sylpheed runs this for me:

echo `uptime`
echo "+++++++++++++++++++++++++++"
echo `fortune /home/joehill/sigs/quotes`
