Outlook Signatures - Different in Meeting Request to Email

    I have a weird situation with Outlook 2003 on XP.

    I have created a tool that allows users in my organisation to create
    standard signature file. It does this by opening a template, replacin
    the tags with the user's details (extracted from AD) and then saving th
    signature file in the default location.

    This works really well for emails.

    I have found that if someone uses this tool they create their signature
    reliably for emails, but if they insert a "new" signature into a Meetin
    Request, they get someone else's details. And always the same someone.

    Inserting a "Reply" signature does not have the same problem.

    The name that appears is not in any file in the default signature fil

    Any ideas

    Sorry folks. Please ignore this. I ended up finding what went wrong.

    I did not realise that signatures for Meeting Requests defaulted to th
    RTF format signature, and a user had corrupted the source file I use t
    generate the signature.

    Emails generally use the HTML format signature (at least they do here).

    If anyone wants the sample code, happy to supply, but please ignore thi
    thread. Many many apologies
