The Fortune package uses the @code{fortune} program to create signatures
for mail or network news messages. (@code{fortune} prints a
random---with luck, interesting---adage, originally inspired by `fortune
cookie' messages.) It also allows you automatically to cut regions to a
Fortune file with @kbd{M-x fortune-from-region} and compile your own
Fortune database. To generate signatures, add
@code{fortune-to-signature} to @code{mail-setup-hook} and/or
@code{message-setup-hook} as appropriate.

@cindex footnotes
@findex footnote-mode
@kbd{M-x footnote-mode} toggles a minor mode for making footnotes in
mail or network news messages. It is intended for use specifically with
Message mode but is not specific to that. It provides commands and
keybindings to insert footnotes, go to a given note, delete a note and
renumber notes. See the group @code{footnote} for customization and the
mode's documentation for keybindings. To set up Footnote mode for all
messages, add @code{footnote-mode} to @code{mail-mode-hook} and/or
@code{message-mode-hook} as appropriate.
