Forwarding a MIME mail as an attachment also should do the same: The new 
receiver can see who signed the original mail. And it could be used, but not 
disused as long as I think...

I use GnuPG (GPG) for E-Mail encryption and signing. If you want some privacy, 
my public key ID is 2F9D4F14. The file "singature.asc" this message includes 
contains a cryptographic signature which enables you to verify this E-Mail 
really was written by me.
