I have a hosted exchange system setup, that I access from 3-4 different computers. Is it possible to automatically have all of the instances of outlook sync or update the signatures dynamically?

    What version of Outlook and are you using Roaming profiles?

    I'm using outlook 2007, and no not using roaming profiles, as we are not connected to a domain. We are just using hosted exchange through Intermedia, which connect, I think through RPC over HTTP connection.

    Profiles are stored locally in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures
    You can make a copy of that directory and put it on a network share or change the permissions and share the directory itself. On the other computers you then copy the contents into the same local folder.

    Only issue with that is that the computers are not all on the same local network. Any way to facilitate this through the standard exchange sync mechanism?

    Accepted Solution

    No, there isn't.  To automate, you will need to have at least one iteration of the sig on each network and script a copy to whatever local machine your user is using.  Exchange has no functionality to do so.
