During the system state backup on one of my domain controllers, I receive the following error message -  
the 'Active Directory' returned 'The parameter is incorrect' from a call to 'BackupRead()' additional data '.'
The user is an domain admin and the other DCs don't have any issues during the system state backup. I'm not sure what the problem could be.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!
