Step by Step Tutorial

1. First, we must create a signature in Outlook that we will be copying to the destination users PC. In this case, we created a signature template called EV Reach as shown below.

2. On the machine that you created the Outlook Signature, open the location %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Signatures. You will find files that correspond to the name of the Signature that we created in step 1.

Copy these files to a centralized location as we will be copying them to the same folder path location that corresponds to the user account of each target machine using a Scope Action later on in this tutorial.
