This started the other day.  No updates had been installed the night before and no changes had been made.  Part of this user's AD email signature is not staying left aligned.  I can go into Outlook and fix it manually but when the user closes Outlook and gets back in, it is shifted back to the right.  What is causing this and how can I fix it permanently?  This is only one user.  He is using 2010.

Try saving the signature block design as HTML stationery.

"Save to %appdata%\microsoft\stationery and the select it from New Items, Email Message using... the first time, you'll need to use More Stationery but after that it will be listed at the top of the flyout."

Did he change his default format to Rich-text?  Changing default format sometimes messes with signature formatting.

Alternatively you may need to create a new Outlook Profile.

I wonder if the /cleanprofile switch would help here.
