Disable option to edit signature settings in Outlook

Hi. Is the a way to prevent the users from editing the signature that we have deployed?

Yes, on Outlook 2010 there is.

We have just discovered this method, and so it is not available in the DS-Manager yet. (As of vers. 5.1.57)

If you create a power shell script like the below and run it a long with the signature deployment you can disable the signature settings dialog.

The user will only be able to look, but not change anything.

On Error Resume Next
Dim WSHShell
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")  
'Outlook Signature No-Edit
\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\MailSettings\NewSignature" , "NameOfTemplate"
WshShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\MailSettings\ReplySignature" , "NameOfTemplate"
