Standardizing Signatures Through Exchange

I'm looking for a way to standardize our user's signatures through Exchange so that they're all uniform. I've looked around a little but haven't found a lot of step by step guides. It appears the easiest, or cleanest, way to do it is to utilize the fields in AD. We don't currently fill out all of the fields on the General tab of the user's profile. That's something that we could go back through and fill out if that is an easy way to do it. Anyone have any tips or guides to get this setup? We are on Exchange 2010.

Thanks!

If you want signatures, I recommend taking a look in to CodeTwo or Exclaimer...


If you don't want to use a paid service/application, you can set up disclaimers (not signatures) in Exchange...

Thank you, Todd. I think I'll start with using the disclaimer and HTML and see if I can come up with something we like.

One other issue I could see us having is everyone already has their signature configured in Outlook. Is there a way to erase all of those signatures so that these aren't displayed twice?

Personally, I would test first with yourself and a someone who can get you the backing you will need (possibly a C-level).  And then create a company policy in which every will sign and state that they need to remove their personal signatures by a specific date.

But, I do not know how to remove custom signatures from Outlook.

Keep in mind that disclaimers are appended to the end of the message thread and not where you would typically expect a signature to be.

Hi itgolfer,

Disabling Outlook signatures is pretty easy to do via GPO: http://www.codetwo.com/kb/how-to-disable-adding-signatures-created-in-outlook-for-exchange-users/?sts=6337

re: disclaimers in Exchange
Todd mentioned a problem where each new disclaimer gets dumped at the very bottom of an email chain. The only way to avoid this is to use a third party email signature manager.

Thanks for the link. I have looked at CodeTwo to do this and it looks like it's easy to use. Thanks.
