First of check permissions on .pst file (rigth click, properties, security tab). Then try to create a new file in the folder where your .pst resides.

Permissions on the file - you don't have any :)

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!

So it can be ActiveDirectory policy that prevents users from using .pst files. Is it your  problem or other users too?
