Outlook Signature GPO issues

In our network we are needing the requirement for users to create their own signatures and then apply them as default to new messages and reply/forwards.

I have looked all over the net for an answer to the problem we are having with this but can't seem to find the correct answer.

In a GPO I set the default signatures to be MySignature once this was done the users lost the abilty to create signatures at all. If I remove that GPO the users can then create signatures and set them to default but once they close and open outlook the signatures they created are still there but the selections they have set for default are back to (none).

Does anyone know of what may be causing the default signature to not stick between outlook sessions?

We are running Outlook 2007 on Windows 7 Professional.

Thanks,

Chad Abbs

When a signature is set using GPO, it overrides the user defined sigs.

Is there a way that I can have the users create personal signatures and have them stick as default when they close and open outlook again?

I am guessing that we might have a policy or reg setting that is blocking this habit. Also, some of the users affected have regular user accounts (not power users) and some are local admins for their boxes.
