Dear cpx_Support,
No it can't be deployed from central location. The only solution is to send a mail to all your users to take it from central location and configure individually. Else you may use some third party disclaimer tool and add this signature if it is command for all the users.

Cheers!

Thanks inbarasan

well no matter.

Do wou think it could work if I make a script that every client can run, that copy the sample signature directly were it must to be?

I think that it is "C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Program data\Microsoft\Signatures"

Cpx Support,

If you're using a login script, I would copy a corporate signature template into the C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Program data\Microsoft\Signatures directory, and then show the users how to edit this template.  Here is how I'm doing it in my vbs login script.

Set wshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
On Error Resume Next
Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If Not FSO.FileExists("c:\documents and settings\" & WshNetwork.UserName & "\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures\General.htm")
FSO.CopyFile "\\servername\sharename\General.htm", "c:\documents and settings\" & WshNetwork.UserName & "\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures\"
End If

Ya, you should be able to copy this in notepad and save it with a .vbs extension.  Place this in your \\<domain name>\netlogon directory and then modify your GPO for your users so that they'll run this logon script.

Actually, Global Signatures ARE possible with Outlook 2003 (http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/ArticleID/47211/47211.html).

They've been made a standard feature in Outlook 2007.
