Default 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 a standard signature file. It does this by opening a template, replacing the tags with the user's details (extracted from AD) and then saving the signature file in the default location.

This works really well for emails.

I have found that if someone uses this tool they create their signatures reliably for emails, but if they insert a "new" signature into a Meeting 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 file location.

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 the RTF format signature, and a user had corrupted the source file I use to 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 this thread. Many many apologies.
