Yes - change the above "dash dash" to "dash dash space".
Most email clients will stip away anything following that, recognizing it as a signature seperator.

IIRC, I've seen instances where the trailing space is included in the signature, but stripped out somewhere along the way, so maybe you're already putting in the space.  But in the event you aren't, add one and see if that doesn't take care of the problem...
