Well, I don't have "Arial Narrow" on my machine.

However, if you're using CSS you can specify a list of typefaces to use, and the browser (or HTML-compliant email client) uses the first one which it can display.

So you can have a CSS style such as

p.signature {font-family: "Arial Narrow", Arial, "Trebuchet MS", "Purisa", sans-serif;}

Note that it's important to always end such a list with one of the following: "sans-serif", "serif", or "monospace", so that if the browser does not have any of the specific fonts you've listed, it can default back to its default font for that generic class.
