We never tried to use digital signatures at my most recent
employer, but we did use an e-mail based approval process
for a number of our projects.
Some project managers were OK with the use of Outlook's
voting buttons for approvals, while others preferred more
formal messages that explicitly stated approval. Ink on paper
sign-offs were just too much of a PITA when a development
team could easily involve people in South Carolina, Oregon,
Arizona, California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Malaysia.
