Hi there,

I have been to visit a friend and found a really nice tool that he had on his PC, it was a little application that allowed all new users to go through the wizard (3 steps) and they would automatically create a new signature for his staff.  This is brilliant, as it allows all his staff to have a consistent email signature.  Now I would like to try to make something like this.  Does anyone have any ideas, tutorials or samples to point me in the right direction?

Well yes thats possible. If your using visual studio 2008 or higher you can create a outlook add-in. It requires .NET framework 3.5 or higher but it allows you to create excellent apps. For instance I created an app which captures the send command, then shows a question to save the mail and send some details to an mssql database.
