Remove unused signatures from Outlook

Is there a method for removing old/unused signatures in Outlook?

In DS-Manager there is no options to erase selectively or in bulk signatures from a client PC.

But this can be accomplished with a script.

Enclosed is a VB-script that can determine the path to the signature folder and erase all signatures.

You should run this script prior to generating fresh signatures.

In a GPO you cannot be sure of the priority of execution, so you should use a method whereby you can ensure that it runs first. E.g. include a call to erase script and signature generation in a single bat or vb script of your own creation.

P.S. This script previously used a registry lookup to determine the path to signatures, but that method is no longer viable from a script as it cannot access the 64bit hive of the registry, if Outlook is a 64bit. So now it just uses a simple guessing test.
