It might be nice to be able to specify the string MailScanner looks for
when deciding to include the signature or not. The <img> tag isn't good
for some of my picky customers who don't like to see the blocked image
and download warnings when using a client such as Outlook. 
If I could specify the text that MailScanner should look for, I could
strip the repeat signatures without annoying anyone.
