Distributing a signature to use as template

My objective is to create a signature in Outlook 2003.
Then use this signature as a template for users to customise accordingly.
How best should this signature template be created and distributed?
Thanks

Hi, garychu.

Outlook/Exchange does not have a built-in means of doing this.  The best solution is to create the signature, place it on a network share, and use a login script to copy it to each computer.  Signatures go in the folder

  C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures

Each signature should have three variations, one for each of the three mail formats Outlook can use (HTML, Rich-text, and plain text).  So, if you had a signature called CompanyX you'd need an HTML version in a file name ComapnyX.htm, a Rich-text version in CompanyX.rtf, and a plain text version in CompanyX.txt.
