Creating a logon script

Hi  - I need to create a logon script which will run in a group policy OU. The script will run an executable file from a folder on the server which will insert a user specific signature into Outlook.
Basically I am setting up machines so that Outlook signatures "roam" with users.

The executable file is located here:

C:\Outlook_Signatures\ExSync

Could someone give me an example of what the BAT file should look like?

Hi Helpfinder - Thanks for that. However, I am using Exclaimer Signature Manager which is actually very good for manager/creating/deploying signatures.
Although it does require that an executable file must be run from each workstation. So, I guess that the logon script would be quite simple as all it would be doing is calling up the exe file from the location folder.

Thanks

So, I created a simple script which looks like this:

\\server\Outlook_Signatures\ExSync.exe

I have saved it as logon.bat and copied it into the following folder on the server:

C:\Windows\sysvol\sysvol\*domainName*\scripts

From AD User and Computers I have selected the users>properties>profile> and entered "logon.bat" in the appropriate field.

Still can't get the roaming Outlook signature to work.
