E-mail Signature button is not present if the "Send To" function is being used from within Microsoft Word

Version 1

    Problem

    When using the "Send To" Microsoft Outlook function from within Microsoft Word, a mandatory signature cannot be used.
     
    The signature is not available and the signature button is not present.

     

    Cause

    If a mandatory signature is being used, the "NewSignature" registry entry is changed by Microsoft Outlook in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\[Versionnumber]\Common\Mailsettings\NewSignature. As a result the signature button will not be available. To use an existing signature the end-user can right click in the signature field and select a different signature.

    This is default behaviour of the Microsoft Office products since Microsoft Office 2007 SP2.

    Solution

    This behavior is by design of Microsoft Outlook 2007 SP2 and up, the issue is not related to RES Workspace Manager and will also occur in an unmanaged session.
