Naive? You can use group policy to disable a users ability to change/add
signature elements. A standardized company signature gives a company a more
appealing look, not to mention the benefits of being able to change address,
telephone, extension, etc information in one location instead of relying on
your employees to make the updates themselves individually....and I dont even
want to get into trying to teach non-technical employees how to create/change
a signature and implement it....
