Server 2012 and Win 8 is the supported method to implement it

Open Group Policy Management Editor
Create a new group policy object
Navigate to User Configuration -> Preferences -> Control Panel Settings
Right click on Internet Options choose New then choose Internet Explorer 10
Under the General tab in the area marked "Home page" type out a web adress, hit enter and then type another web address on the next line.

There are some hacks for other versions or work arounds....

Shouldn't all users have the same email signature?

You wouldn't let your users design their own business cards, would you? So, why do you let them design their own email signatures? Think of the damage they could be doing to your brand reputation! Choose the easy way to manage set up and add email signatures for all users.

Set the Following Properties
