We are an organization of ~250 users. We recently hired a new marketing director and on his task list for IT was to remove "random and unprofessional" signatures and stationary each employee was using. We are using Office 07 and Exchange 07. We went ahead and disabled stationary via group policy which seems to work fine. Then our marketing director put together a "preferred" signature template for each employee which he sent out manually via e-mail and had everyone customize themselves. This signature also contains a 4kb png company logo. What we have been seeing is that sometimes the logo gets stripped out (possibly by stationary policy?) for some users.
1) is the way we are utilizing the stationary policy the best way to go?
2) are we "wasting a ton of space" on our servers by using this 4kb file across the board? if so what have other companies done to help ease the attachment/file sizes?
3) is there a streamlined or automated way to get these signatures in e-mail without relying on the user to manually customize it?
4) how do we prevent the stationary GP from stripping out the signature logo?
thanks for your insight!
