Outlook 2013 searching for signature on remote computer, why?

I have a user that logs onto 2 different computers during the day.  1 computer has a set local signature the other does not "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures".
When trying to create an e-mail from the computer with the set signature.  It will first do a brief search of the none signatured computers signature folder before the new e-mail opens.  The e-mail will then open with the signature that is set at that computer.  When sending e-mails at the non signatured computer, no search happens and there is no signature set at that computer.

Any ideas why this happens?

Check for two things:

1) the value of HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\General\Signatures
2) folder redirection for the %APPDATA% folder or the signatures subfolder
