INTRODUCTION

Issue that the hotfix package fixes

This hotfix fixes the following issue that was not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

• Outlook 2003 provided a method for members of the Administrators group to force a specific signature to be used in e-mail messages and to prevent users from changing that signature. This method uses one the following registry subkeys:

• HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Policies Microsoft Office 11.0 Common MailSettings
• HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Office 11.0 Common MailSettings

However, users can still use the Signature feature to change the e-mail signature settings in Outlook 2007, even if members of the Administrators group configure one of the following registry subkeys for Outlook 2007:

• HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Policies Microsoft Office 12.0 Common MailSettings
• HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Office 12.0 Common MailSettings
