    Roaming Outlook Signatures without a roaming profile

    Hi all,

    I looking for some help/advice to a solution for an obstacle I have with Microsoft Outlook (2010) Signatures. My users do not have roaming profiles but instead they have a home directory (H) which is accessible from any computer. I would like to have the signatures move with the users as they move from computer to computer.

    A few months ago, I came up with a couple of simple scripts to move the signatures by using the Home directory.

    Basically, it worked like this,
    Log Off script:
    Check if %Appdata%\Microsoft\Signatures exists, quit if not
    delete h:\Signatures
    copy %Appdata%\Microsoft\Signatures to h:\
    hide h:\signatures

    Log on Script:
    Check if h:\Signatures exists, quit if not.
    delete %Appdata%\Microsoft\Signatures
    copy h:\signatures to %Appdata%\Microsoft\Signatures
    unhide %Appdata%\Microsoft\Signatures


    Now this solution works however when a user moves computer, they loose their "Default Signature" setting so they need to manually select their signature when they compose a new email, or reconfigure the outlook signature options.

    Does anyone know where this setting is actually stored? I was hoping it was a registry entry (that I could export at logoff and import at login, similar to the way the signatures "roam") however I can't find it.

    Or, is their a better way to do this, without using roaming profiles ?



    Thanks for reading, looking forward to your suggestions/comments.
