Thanks, Eric.
For forwarding messages, I found "Message Forward Before Signature" (M-x 
customize-group, Message Forwarding), it would be nice to have something 
similar for replies. Another point I realized is that if you reply from an 
account without signature, I still get the separator "-- " in the beginning of 
the reply. That might need a fix, too (?).

Cheers,

Marius
