See the manual about send-hook and reply-hook

reply-hook '~t myfirst.ad' my_hdr 'From: xxxxxxx
<xxxxx@yyyy.zz>; set signature="sh ~/bin/msig_xxx|"'

send-hook '~t
'my_hdr From: myname <myname@xxx.yy>;\
set signature="sh ~/bin/msig_ccc|"'

fetchmail, procmail, postfix, mailfilter, amavis, clamav, etc..
