Where does Outlook store signatures?

I need to determine whether a user has Outlook 2003 setup to automatically

insert a signature for new messages, replies, or forwards. How can I use VBA

to determine this?

Thanks for your help.

It sounds like you want to programmatically check whether the

"Signature for new messages" box is filled in. My guess is that it

isn't possible.

JP - Yes, that is exactly what I want to do. I am hoping that someone would

be able to tell me how Outlook determines that the user has selected a

signature under the Tools -> Options -> Mail Format -> Signatures menu

options and then fills in the user's selected signature. I've checked the

Outlook object model and the Inspectors and CommandBars without success.

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would truly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Dave

I'm pretty certain that's not exposed to the Outlook Object Model, and it seems to be a general area of black magic; see <http://207.46.16.252/en-us/magazine/2006.10.heyscriptingguy.aspx>, <http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938360>, and registry keys like

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\nn.m\Common\MailSettings

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\nn.m\Outlook\Signatures

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\profilename\9375CFF0413111d3B88A00104B2A6676\number

and their values.

I think you are better off distributing a memo telling your staff what they have to do, why, and how.

In addition to Michael, in Outlook 2003 you can determine different

signatures for each account and profile. The accounts of a profile are

listed under:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows

Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\[profile name]\9375CFF0413111d3B88A00104B2A6676

Under each account see if there's an entry called 'New Signature'. If so,

the user has set Outlook to insert the mentioned signature automatically for

new emails.

For replies and forwards the entry in the registry is called 'Reply-Forward

Signature'.

Best regards

Along the same lines, I am trying to use a macro within the outlook 2007

appointment to insert a signature...without any positive results. The VBA

code is written, it works in word, and I just get errors within the new

appointment box. Any suggestions?
