You can setup disclaimers and stuff through your email server, you don't have to do it through AD. Are you using Exchange? If so, what version?

You won't be able to do this with a logon script, your signature graphics would have to be hosted externally by a publicly available hosting service and the disclaimer would really need to be done using third party software if using exchange 2003.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

How do you do that? Through group policy? If so, can you provide more details on that? Where is the setting found and what are it's current settings?

We use our logon script to create the Outlook signature based on some field from the user object in AD.

The basic signature (that is common for all) is stored in a Word document located on a share. Then the user spesific attributes are merged with the word doc. and a signature is create in each user profile.

It's based on this vbs script (only in Norwegian I'm afraid, but I can translate for you if needed): http://www.knowledgegroup.no/tips-triks/it-teknisketips.aspx?tipsdetaljer=130

If you have a 2008 domani you can use powershell like this: http://blog.powershell.no/2010/01/09/outlook-signature-based-on-user-information-from-active-directory/

I'm not sure I understand what you ask for, but the signature is a rtf-file located in each users Outlook profile. If you want to have an image in your signature you can place the image in the Word file. There ain't no image attribute / blob on a user object to be called.

i.e.

Regards
Givenname + surename <- (Word bookmark read from AD)
address <- (bookmark read from AD)
Phone 555-1000, Direct 555-1005  <- (bookmark read from AD)
