The slash s before a name on a signature line typically stands for "for" or "on behalf of." This indicates that the person signing the document is signing in a representative capacity for someone else or a group.

What does a s slash s mean on a signature line?

/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).

What does a slash mean before a name signature in emails?

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/
