Suppose one has an unusual or foreign name, or a name which traditionally belongs to the other gender. Is it inappropriate to add one's title (i.e. Mr/Ms/Mrs) to the signature of a letter/email so as to identify the author's gender?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
If this is a formal letter or e-mail between you and someone (ex. you and a teacher or an employer), it would definitely be correct to add the title before the name.
It is not. You shouldn't. Don't. It would be silly and impolite. People would throw garbage at you.
You could use a trick or two, though. You could insert a nickname between the Christian name and surname. As in:
Laballa "Gentlemanly Jack" Barocca, Esq.
Affectionately Yours, Drapezhnik "Bubbly Jill" Femistodinzs
