I recently[5] solved that by reducing my .sig down to two very minimal
lines and moving most of the 'information' into X- headers. Everything
is either there, or discoverable via there. Keeps mess out of email
replies (as well as out of most people's discovery :)

I've sometimes clipped those from nested replies, leaving the rest
intact. I hate the new Outlook four-line quote information though, since
etiquette says it cannot be edited down to something concise, and it's
nescessary to follow the conversation in such cases. :(


[5] If the filestamp on my .sig is anything to go by, by "recently" I
mean almost a year ago. Wow time goes fast
