Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

"the person who posted that info" would be me.

The ZIP file contains three files:
URL.DLL - If you don't already have a URL.DLL file in your \windows or \windows\system directory, copy it to \windows\system.  Do *not* overwrite an existing one.
AUTODIAL.REG - This file enters the required info into the registry.  Double-click it.
DOWNLOAD.TXT - Blah blah blah...  Delete it.

That's all.  A reboot may be needed.

Hi, I finally did install that .reg file. Now, WIndows loads dialer automatically, but it doesn't unload WInsock on a request? iS that the way it should be?
Thanks,
Victor
