looking for a program to make a linkable signature in oultook in a business card format

i want to create a standard signature in outlook for 10 users.  i want it to look like our business card and want the recipient to be able to click on the website name and it takes you to the website, or the email and it links you to the email.

any ideas?

You're probably best if you look at server-side solutions. Using a server-side solution ensures that the signature is applied even when users use Outlook Web Access, POP3, IMAP, RPC over HTTPS or a direct MAPI connection when Outlook is local on the network. Exclaimer allows you to do exactly what you want - and more. It adds a signature to all outgoing emails, using the user's name, telephone number, email address and other information which is stored in Active Directory. It runs on the Exchange server, so only needs to be configured once and this configuration prevents using turning it off.

Yes, you can use Exclaimer to change the format of the signature it adds as you wish. You can make it into a business card if you like. Exclaimer is the only truly effective option open to you in order to achieve what you want to do.

there are programs out there that will make an html business card for you.  that is what I am looking for.  i want to have it look just like a business card but have links on the card itself.  also, some of my accounts only have pop accounts.

If you want to do it through Outlook, I guess you're going to have to use one the following approaches in order to achieve this:

Thse approaches also work particularly well for running it client-side in Outlook, and it doesn't need the HTML coding which the above linked approach generates http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA012309061033.aspx#1 or Outlook 2003: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA100686361033.aspx
