How can I lock-down user's outlook signatures in Outlook 2010, so users are unable to change them?
Users are on Windows 7 PC's.

Hello,

You can't prevent users from changing the signature but you can use a logon script to change the signature to whatever you want it to be each time the user logs on. See my blog post here for an explanation on how to set this up:

Thank you for your comment.  Tested your suggestion, by making the user SIGNATURES Folder -(READ ONLY). However I need to apply this for over 200 users. I tried creating a GPO to lockdown users  %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Signatures folder, but the GPO do not seem to be working.  Not to sure I configured the GPO correctly. Please help!!

I'm an old fashioned MS-Dos kinda guy so....

icacls %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Signatures /deny %username% (d,wd) /t

as part of a login script for non-admin users ought to do it. Check to see if there are other subfolders under Signatures that need write permissions first; though, OK? (I don't think their are; but, don't have a PC with Office 2010 to check, at the moment)
