For myself, as a BrE-speaker, I would only use 1-3 in the context of employment, where you needed to create a record of your presence. I would only use 4 in the context of transport or accommodation, where another party needed to be aware of my presence.

But I suppose you could use them as a half-humorous metaphor.

It may be different in AmE.

[sign / log] [on to / in to | off of / out of] ["English Forums" / the e-mail system].

I think "onto" and "into" as single words would also be all right. Maybe others have strong opinions about these.

CJ's comments: [sign / log] [on to / in to | off of / out of] ["English Forums" / the e-mail system]

sign on to = log on to = sign in to = log in to your e-mail system

sign off of = sign out of = log off of = log out of your e-mail system

For this particular usage, sign = log, on = in, off = out. Can someone confirm?
