How to Disable Signature on a Outlook Template file (.oft)

I have created a template in Outlook 2003 and have created a toolbar button as well. But the problem now is, everytime I open the template, it adds my signature on top of the message with 2 line spaces. Is there a way to disable the signature just for the template? or any other work around for this, but I don't want to disable the entire signature feature. Any suggestions/ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

No, there is no way to disable signatures for one template.  Signatures are either on or they are off.  If they are on, then they are going to appear in every new message without regard to what template they were created with.  If this template is using HTML, then you can protect the message by putting it in an absolutely positioned <DIV>.

Right. Ok. It doesn't use HTML, but I'll learn to live with deleting my signature every time I open that template.
