But no user looks into the local mailboxes any more as most modern mail user
agents like Thunderbird, Sylpheed, KMail, Evolution don't show the user
mail in the local mailboy by default.

Have you ever considered how much text can fit in eighty columns?  Given that a
signature typically contains up to four lines of text, this space allows you to
attach a tremendous amount of valuable information to your messages.  Seize the
opportunity and don't waste your signature on bullshit that nobody cares about.
