It is intended to suggest a signature as opposed to just the typed name. I suspect this practice derives from similar signifiers used in typewritten copies of legal documents. It also seems likely that it is related to the practice of using slashes to represent /italics/. The parallel with closing HTML tags () may also have helped to cement this practice as it is used at the end of an email. This seems like a more tenuous connection but it does account for the loss of the slash after the name. Another explanation for that could be that the email style is a blend of two common typewritten styles (see below). Email version: /John Doe Typewriter versions: s/John Doe /John Doe/
The slash before a name signature on an email means that the document has been electronically signed. In most cases, it is considered as valid as an actual pen and ink signature.
Sir, /s/ is a representation of a signature in documents where the hand-written signature itself could not or was not scanned. Sincerely, /s/ Eric
It is like a template, you can pre-load your signature (what you would sign a letter with) to save time when replying to emails.
An email signature is what you add to the end of the email. You might just sign your emails with your name or offer up a cute or funny saying that you stamp at the end of each of your outgoing emails.

/s/ on a signature line means that the signature is on the original document, not on the copy that you're holding. It is a representation that the original document is properly signed, but for some reason you only have an unsigned copy of the document. An unsigned copy of a document may be used for reference only or it may be a file copy (when it is not necessary to have a signed copy of the document).
le / vel
Specimen signature means your signature itself . It is a copy of the original. It is used for verifying and comparing with the original
