    There are a number of Microsoft Outlook options that you can enforce using Active Directory Group Policy. To set this up, first download the Office Resource Kit. Locate the ADM files in the Resource Kit folder and copy them into %windir%\inf. The template that will be of the most interest to you is Outlk11.adm.

    Once you've done this, create a Group Policy Object (GPO). Call it Outlook Configuration, or anything with a convenient name. Edit your GPO and select the Administrative Templates under User Configuration. Right-click Administrative Templates, select the Add/Remove Templates option, and then browse to the Outlok11.adm file. After you've done this, you will have a new node under User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with lots of goodies that you can configure and enforce for your users, including specification of stationary and fonts.

    Unfortunately, adding standard signatures cannot be accomplished through Group Policy. For that, you could create an Event Sink and add a disclaimer to simulate a signature, or you could use third-party software.
