mutt signatures
 
Hi,

What package/software do you use to rotate signatures in email? I use mutt.

I googled and found a package called autosig, but it does not have a debian
package...

well I'm using "fortune" for that. Any reason why you want to use something
else?

I use a technique I learnt from somebody else on the Debian list long
ago: I have installed the package 'verse' and then use a template
with the following script (tekenpos):


#! /bin/bash
cat ~/<signature-template> > ~/.signature
/usr/bin/verse >> ~/.signature

crontab -l shows:

@daily /usr/local/bin/tekenpos

It is easy to adapt that for whatever you want to put in your
signature.

Regards
Johann
