Use plain html code for that. But logo must be available over public accessible web site.


You can use Ms Word to create html signature, but it can get quite big html code.
Any other program for html is good (better) or you can just use notepad for editing the html code.

In exchange 2010 is built in.
For other versions I don't know any free programs.
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.

Here's the script we use in our environment.  It's VBScript, and it's simply a user based logon script.  When run, it queries a variety of attributes on an AD user object, and creates a sig file for Outlook.

This one collects a few different attributes, including department, phone, fax, mobile, etc.,  Should get you going pretty well.

Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")

strUser = objSysInfo.UserName
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & struser)

strName = objUser.FullName
strTitle = objUser.Title
strDepartment = objUser.Department
strCompany = objUser.Company
strPhone = objUser.telephoneNumber
strPager = objuser.pager
stremail = objuser.mail
strFax = objuser.faxnumber
strmobile = objuser.mobile
strWeb = "www.yourdomain.com"

If lcase(right(stremail,8)) = "yourdomain.com" then

Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Set objDoc = objWord.Documents.Add()
Set objSelection = objWord.Selection
Set objEmailOptions = objWord.EmailOptions
Set objSignatureObject = objEmailOptions.EmailSignature
Set objSignatureEntries = objSignatureObject.EmailSignatureEntries

objSelection.Font.Size = "12"
objSelection.Font.Name = "Garamond"
objSelection.Font.Color = "-587137025"
objSelection.Font.Bold = True
objSelection.TypeText strName
objSelection.TypeText Chr(11)
objSelection.TypeText strTitle
objSelection.TypeText Chr(11)
objSelection.Font.Bold = False
objSelection.TypeText "Company Name"
objSelection.TypeText Chr(11)
objSelection.TypeText "Another line of text"
objSelection.TypeText Chr(11)

if strPager <> "" then
objSelection.TypeText "Office: " & strPager
objSelection.TypeText Chr(11)
      if strPhone <> "" then
      objSelection.TypeText "Office: " & strPhone
      objSelection.TypeText Chr(11)
      end if
end if

if strmobile <> "" then
objSelection.TypeText "Mobile: " & strmobile
objSelection.TypeText Chr(11)
end if

if strFax <> "" then
objSelection.TypeText "Fax: " & strFax
objSelection.TypeText Chr(11)
end if

objSelection.TypeText "Email: "
objSelection.Hyperlinks.Add objSelection.Range, "mailto:" & strEmail,,, strEmail
Set objSelection = objDoc.Range(objSelection.End-Len(strEmail & " "),objSelection.End)
With objSelection.Font
      .Name = "Garamond"
      .Size = "12"
End With
Set objSelection = objWord.Selection

i cant use login script, because exchange is in different domain
In the above script, it's purely querying the Attributes of an Active Directory Account and uses fields if they're present on the AD object.  It doesn't matter which domain the Exchange server is on--at least I don't think it does.

To change the font, look for the word Garamond in the script.  Change it to your choice of font, and size.  The color portion is trickier.  The CHR(11) represents the color.  I'm not recalling the actual source chart of this color reference, and when I do change the color options, it's not always consistent depending on the os and version of Outlook on the client.

As davorin states, yep, plain html.  This script creates a few versions of your signatures, with an HTML version included.  Adding the code to the script though, is another story.  Since the script creates the multiple versions of the signature, the plain text signature(s) wouldn't be able to support the HTML logo.
