    We would like to use a custom signature applet to replace the default Groupwise signtaure feature. However, we can’t seem to find a way to permanently disable the groupwise signature checkbox control (Options –> Environment –> Signature tab) through neither a Formativ applet, the registry, or the PO.

    Do you have any suggestions? We are currently running Formativ 2.0 and Groupwise 6.5.2b… will downloading any of the upgrades/service packs solve this problem?

    There is no registry/PO setting you can use to disable the inherent GroupWise signature facility. The only way to do it in a deterministic fashion is to run an applet that changes the settings, such as:

    Sub Main(Client, GWEvent)
       call Groupwise.PrefSignature(incNo, false, false, "")
    End Sub

    You could configure the applet to run on client startup to help ensure the user has not turned the facility back on.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you for the suggestion. Although this solution has potential, ideally we would like to make absolutely sure that a user is not able to turn the facility back on during a session (after client startup).

    Would GroupWise 7.0 allow us to disable the GW signature feature via the registry/PO?

    As far as we know, you can not disable signature option through registry/PO in GroupWise 7.
