Blank space
Then i have keyboard shortcuts(auto text), eg worksig which puts my title and company then put a new line with worksig2 which then puts in company disclaimer and similarly I have personal sig which throws in my twitter and website links for non company emails.

Rogers & Fido in Canada offer this service through Extreme Text Messaging. It is a signature feature controlled from the network, instead of the phone. Users on these carriers can control this from use of the "My Account" application that they have access too directly from their iPhone.
