First, thank you for your quick response. However, it appears that your
'sig delimiter' is limited to two dashes rather than 'dash dash
space'. Unfortunately, sans the <space> the 'sig delimiter' will not
work as intended.

Maybe your MUA is stripping the 'space' at the end out. I have no idea.

I do agree that massive signatures/disclaimers are a pure waste of time
and bandwidth as well as being legally unenforceable. I believe in
Germany, that they are not required on publicly accessible forums, such
as this one. Is that different in the UK? The web accessible
'disclaimer' is a nice touch though. Unfortunately, some politician will
undoubtedly eventually nullify that also.
