It's technically possible, but doing so would require the use of a web-distributed font format and some CSS work that has to be in every email. You can install the font locally on each computer and use it, but external recipients wouldn't be able to read the files, so they wouldn't see the font. Only people who have the font installed would be able to see it.

If the font is web-distributed, you can use a CSS entry to define the font location, which external recipient mail clients would read to access the font. In general, though, you'll want to stick to the safe generic fonts that are in all web clients.

Alternative, create the signature locally as an image and include the image as the signature.
