We have a client that claims their previous tech company did not do updates on schedule.  What I need from Windows Server 2011 is a log of every single update, from the install (12/2012) to current and the date of installation?  What is the best way to retrieve this information?

On the server and/or PC's?

You might be better to use the SBS console under Security / updates and see what updates have not been installed on the network, instead of reviewing what has been installed.

You can review installed updates on the server under Control panel | Windows Update | on the left - review update history

You can also review the status of available, applied, and declined updates in the WSUS console, assuming it has not been disabled, under administrative tools | Windows Update Services | Updates or by computer under Computers

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?
