I am considering expanding my small domainn to a dedicated server rental service. I am renting two dedicated to test setting up a domain. The problem with these rented servers is that they randomly setup the servers in a different subnets and I need to setup a way to connect them together so that they can become one domain. I would asume that I need to do this using a VPN. I believe the servers are in the same building and it should work ok if I can get them to connect.

What are the steps to get this done?

if they are on different subnets that don't talk to each other you will have to create a site to site VPN.  You can do this through windows, but I prefer to do it through the firewalls or routers

I don't have control of the servers in any way regarding routers. Do you have any info on creating a persistent VPN connection?

I would use the IPSEC VPN for convenience sake.

this might be a bit easier to follow

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
