Disable Outlook Signature



I am implementing a company-wide signature to my Exchange 2000 server through
a 3rd party program. I want to prevent my users from using Outlook's
Signature feature. Is there a registry hack I can deploy that would prevent
the use of the Outlook Signature? I know they can manually type/paste it in,
but least they would have to work for it. I am running a mix of Outlook XP
and 2003. I am running Windows 200 AD...is there a GP that would do this?
I am open to running a registry hack through a logon script.

After applying Office 2003 Service Pack 2, you should be able to use the Outlk11.adm administrative template file to deply this setting with a Group Policy Object:

Administrative Templates
Microsoft Office Outlook 2003
Tools | Options
Mail Format
Disable signatures for new messages
Disable signatures for replies and forwards

Note that application of this setting may block the user from setting some other options on the Tools | Options | Mail Format dialog.

You'll have to check with the Outlk10.adm file to see if it has a similar setting.
