Can Policy Patrol stop users adding an Outlook signature?

Solution

Policy Patrol cannot stop users from adding an Outlook signature, however it is possible to prevent this by enabling the 'Disable signatures for new messages policy' and the 'Disable signatures for replies and forwards policy'. However before you enable these policies you must first delete the signature from Outlook, since otherwise the user will still be able to add the existing signature. More information about this can be found on the following page (in the additional notes right at the end of the page): http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;898076
