Default Outlook Signature

Does anyone know if there is a way to set a default Outlook signature or block changing the signature in Outlook using group policy?  We would like everyone's signature to look the same.  Name, Title, blah blah

Yes you can use Group Policy to restrict users from changing the signature.

1: To add a new GPO, click New, type a name for the GPO, and then click Edit.
2: Under User Configuration, right-click Administrative Templates, and then click Add/Remove Templates.
3: In the Add/Remove Templates dialog box, click Add, click OUTLK11.ADM, click Open, and then click Close.
4: Expand Administrative Templates, expand Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, expand Tools | Options, and then click Mail Format, and click Singature.

I have been using a third party application for this - Exclaimer and then disabling the use of signatures in group policy as above.
Exclaimer can use information that you have put in to the active directory fields and build the signatures on the fly. Change something in AD and the signature has the new information the next time it is used.

You can set up an stationery with the template that you want to have in the signature ( logo, address and everything else) .

On my experience I created the stationary and save it as an HTML file then load into the outlook and have it by default
Tools> Options > Mail Format > Stationery Picker > New > Use  this file as a template ( here you load the HTML file with the signature that you want to set

That will get it done.

Hope this works for you
