Need to disable editing of signatures

Afternoon -

We will be rolling out corporate email signatures to all employees and would like to be able to lock them down and prevent the users from editing them.

Is there GPO setting that i am perhaps missing?  I've downloaded both 2003 and 2007 Outlook adm files and imported them into my admin templates.

There is a setting to "Disable items in the user interface" which requires knowing the command bar ID - so I've downloaded and installed OutlookSpy...but i cannot seem to find what i am looking for....

Anyone else have any luck with disabling the editing of signatures?

Thank you!!

    It doesn't appear that there is an option to do this except to set the Signature folder as read only.  You may be able to find a script for this.
