I have a windows 2003 terminal server. It had office 2007 on it. I ran the upgraded for 2010.
Every new profile created when a user logins shows the icons for office 2007 shortcuts. I can't seem to find how to remove the shortcuts from appearing even after I delete them. The come back every time.

Take a look in the profile for All Users, I'll bet that's where those icons live.  Everything in there is applied IN ADDITION to what is in the user's profile.

I looked in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop
They are the icons I want. Office 2007 icons are not showing in that location automatically add every time.

The icons were being add automatically. I found the problem. There was a shortcuts.cmd
example:
copy /y \\servername\TSUD\Shortcuts\*.* "c:\Documents and Settings\%usermane%\Desktop

Once I found the location I was able to remove the icons from automatically reinserting every time I logged in.

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?
