Deploying Microsoft Outlook Email Signatures
I need to setup some Email signature files for every user who logs in
The locaion of those files in outlook are in Tools-->Options-->Mail Format-->Stationery and Fonts-->Email Signature.
We tried Active Setup in previous package but we decided to get rid of it as it is causing lot of issues in our environment.
Is there any other way how i can make it work for all users..Please pitch in any ideas, Your response is highly appreciated.
In our environment we used scripting to call a batch file that put new signature files into %appdata%\micrsoft\signatures.
First I setup Task one to Verify that the directory “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)” exists
Then On Success Launch “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\NewSig.bat” with params “”.
(i had a bit of help from a support tech with the setup of the kscript)
this places the signature file into %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Signatures, the .htm file. The other folder that is copied contains a picture, 2 .XML documents and a themedata.thmx file all files releated to the formatting of the signature.
If you want to do it without AS, I guess the log-in script is the next most obvious place but that will involve scripting and, to be frank - and please don't take offence - if you're put off AS because of one problem, I wouldn't be very confident about your ability to build bullet-proof scripts.
No offense taken...You might have not reached to this position with out starting from somewhere so please stop doubting about other's ability that would be the most dumbest thing to do. Thanks
so that the conversation will remain readable.
