standardization via registry?



I want to standardize the following settings across my office:

Standard email font (same as MS Word font)
Standard signature
and a few other items in MS Word

Can all this be set via the registry? If so, can someone either give me the
registry info or point me in the right direction?

From my latest book:

Outlook’s font settings are located in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\MailSettings key, probably because this information is shared by Outlook and by Word, when Word is used as the email editor (a configuration known as WordMail). You can either export the MailSettings key from the registry of a machine configured the way you want it and then import that .reg file into the CIW or CMW, or you can use the Office Profile Wizard to capture these settings.

That's for Outlook 2003. It should be the same for other versions but 10.0 for Outlook 2002 instead of 11.0, etc.

For signatures, we need to know your Outlook version.
