Corporate Outlook Signatures

Posted on 2006-06-29

I would like to standardized corporate signatures for our employees.  I would also like to have our logo with an HTML link on it.  Does anybody know how to script this out or know of an app that will let me generate signatures based on Active Directory information and have it magically work with Outlook 2003?

I consider this to be fairly tough if scripting is involved so let's say 500 points.

The easiest is to get a 3rd party application like Exclaimer to do the work for you from the Exchange server.  This way you can control the look and feel of the mail without having to depend on users.

Will this let me do signatures or just disclaimers?

If you only need basic Disclaimer on the bottom of the message, then look at GFI Mail Essentials - it has a non expiring disclaimer feature that you can use for a corporate wide disclaimer without having to purchase software.

There are many other applications that do this work, and much better than any scripting could ever do.

I want to standardize e-mail signatures to look like:

    LOGO w/ HTML link
First Name Last Name

Outlook 2003 keeps signatures locally but everyone screws them up when they make them.  I'd like to correct this and if possible prevent them from changing their email signatures.  Funny thing, I am already using eXclaimer to leave disclaimers for all outgoing messages.

You can write an event sink for the same using Visual Basic

Through a VB script you can also fatch user information from AD to make his signature and to add company logo.

Hi,  Exclaimer will allow you to do all you need... down to per user and per group in AD... even have different look and feel for every OU.  The only limit is your imagination.  

Also, some nice built in features would be mail routing filters, and auto responders that don't even require the creation of accounts in AD.

And not scripting required... that was the best for me.  We spent the few $ gladly.
