AD Based Outlook Email Signature for 2003 and 2007 Part 4 – Now writes TXT and RTF as well as HTML

Ok due to high demand, and for some very odd reason 2007 was not writing the .txt file and the .rtf.

Now I have implemented various changes so it does this, however due to time constraints its not as
automated as I would like, I will try to review this when I get some free time (hopefully :) ).

So if you are using the old script the only changes are:

‘=========================================================
‘ This adds the Text file, will need to be changed accordingly
‘==========================================================

Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(Folderlocation&”Elcom.txt”,True)
objfile.writeLine “”& FullName & ” | ” & title & ” |  ” & title & ” | “& Company & ” | Australian Technology Park”
objfile.writeLine “T +612 ” & PhoneNumber & ” | F +612 9209 4423 | www.elcom.com.au | ” & Email &” ”
objfile.writeLine ” ”
objfile.writeLine ” ”
objfile.writeLine “——————————————————————————–”
objfile.writeLine “This email is intended for the intended recipients(s) and may contain confidential information. ”
objfile.writeLine “Reproduction, dissemination or distribution of this message is prohibited unless authorised by the sender.”
objfile.writeLine “If you are not the intended recipient, please notify the sender immediately and you must not read,”
objfile.writeLine “keep, use, disclose, copy or distribute this email without the sender’s prior permission.”
objfile.writeLine “The views expressed by the sender are not necessarily those of Elcom Technology Pty Ltd ”
objFile.Close

as you can see I have had to write this out again (without the HTML tags), this is far from perfect but
it is a working fix for the time being. You will have to edit the above to suite your Text based
Signature.

Next addition is

‘====================================================
‘ This copies the .htm file and changes it to a RTF format
‘====================================================

‘Set the Source and Destination paths below – CHANGE your file name
‘—————————————————-

Const OverwriteExisting = True
Set objFSO = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)
objFSO.CopyFile Folderlocation & “Elcom.htm” , Folderlocation & “Elcom.rtf”, OverwriteExisting 

Being that RTF will show a HTML format this is any easy fix, all you have to do with this is change the
file name which we set in the begining of the script. So for example I would change “Elcom.htm” to
“MyCompany.htm”

  Here is the complete code
