Lotus Notes signature file

Posted on 2013-11-13
Last Modified: 2013-11-19

I have a script that has created an HTML signature file (signature.htm) on each users "d:\emailsig
folder".  I need help within a script that I will email to all users which will load into Lotus notes as their permament signature.
I'm using LN 8.5.1

It'll take you (us) quite some time to develop this completely error-free. Wouldn't it be better, more flexible, faster, etc. to use an off-the-shelf solution, instead of reinventing yet another wheel? I saw there's one by Whitsell Consultancy (no link, sorry), and there's this one: http://www.justfordomino.com/products.nsf/productid/85LKHJ?opendocument

I've got it and it's working

Set NotesSession = CreateObject("Notes.Notessession")
Set maildb= NotesSession.GetDatabase("", "")

Call Maildb.OpenMail

Set mailprof = maildb.GetProfileDocument("CalendarProfile")

'Remove any existing signature field from CalendarProfile
'Dim itmSig As NotesItem
Set itmSig = mailprof.GetFirstItem("Signature_Rich")
If Not itmSig Is Nothing Then mailprof.RemoveItem("Signature_Rich")

Call mailprof.ReplaceItemValue("EnableSignature", "1")
Call mailprof.ReplaceItemValue("SignatureOption", "2")
Call mailprof.ReplaceItemValue("Signature_1", "")
Call mailprof.ReplaceItemValue("Signature_2", "D:\emailsig\signature.htm")
Call mailprof.ReplaceItemValue("Signature", "D:\emailsig\signature.htm")
Call mailprof.ComputeWithForm(True, False)
Call mailprof.Save(True, False)
