Give it five and we'll think of something else. In the meantime you
might want to try old-style rich-text formatting, a giant attached image
in place of a signature (or choose your favourite monster from
alt.warlord if you don't have the facilities,) a bunch of the rfc3798
headers along with any other headers that might have been suggested by
various people on usenet to do the same thing for every possible client,
various cargo-culted "special case" contents of the Reply-To header, a
gigantic User-Agent header with an ASCII art representation of a ZX-80
in it. And a baby's arm holding an apple.
