We can see from here, that new exciting feature is about to be rolled out:
Great timing as our company is in the middle of preparing/releasing signature mechanism, question is: how it will look like as there is not much information I can find.
Currently there is one signature available in OWA, and the roadmap's tag says "Windows Desktop Outlook" and I do not get it - will all of my Outlook signatures be sinchronized to OWA? Will all my signatures configured on the server side (OWA) be visible in Outlook - so the sync will be in the other way around as well? This feature would greatly ease this particular task, as there would be no need of pushing signatures to each workstations etc. but I would like to know more about the mechanism itself, readmap says June, but as we all know date might be floating, so maybe there is no reason for us to wait and implement our mechanism. Is here someone who is in contacts with the product team and can give some heads up / sneak peak on this feature? Maybe @Julia Foran ? :)

@Pawel Jarosz Hello Pawel, you've seen this article? https://www.petri.com/microsoft-working-outlook-cloud-signatures
*edit* a more recent!
Roaming Signatures for Outlook for Windows
Jun 02 2020 12:12 AM
Hi @ChristianBergstrom ! Yep, seen both, and both say like 99% about why it was not yet ready, and 1% about how it won't kill ISV market, and 0% about how it actually will look like. My concern is it says Outlook FOR WINDOWS. Well, if signatures are in the cloud, why Outlook for Mac or for Linux won't be able to use it?
Currently situation is similar for me to some documentaries on Discovery / National Geographic channel - they loop 100x the same scenes, adverts take 50% of the show, and at the end you know nothing.

@Pawel Jarosz Well, for a feature still being in development stage as per the roadmap I think that Mr Redmonds article pretty much gives you an idea about it. As for supported versions there's always "first versions supported" with more to follow.
For the record it's not only signatures
When this will happen

Hi @ChristianBergstrom, Seems I haven't gone through this Mr. Redmontd's article patiently enough, hmm...maybe because I was so wound up because of lack of information. Anyway, indeed this article says that it won't work for other clients. Thank you for pointing that out. Knowing that fact gives me a landscape of work that needs to be done in our automation. Appreciate your help on this.

@Pawel Jarosz FYI
'Outlook roaming signatures'
When this will happen
We will begin rolling this out to Microsoft 365 Monthly Channel, Targeted, in late July. (This is Insiders Slow Channel which will soon be called Microsoft Beta.) We expect to roll this out to the Monthly Channel, Production, in late August.

Does anyone knows where the Signature is stored? Could not find it with mfcmapi... Looked in the Associated Items of Root and Inbox Folders.

Almost necroposting here, sorry for that.
I've really search but can find no information about how to edit or create this type of signature.
Just created a PowerShell rollout of signatures, but this feels yesterday if I can create them the new way.
Any info on API or PS integration?

Hello, it's actually good sometimes when someone replies to an old thread as it can be updated. I had no idea that it [signatures] was still in development and the roll out paused. Now I know.
Adding for reference (API info at the bottom of the first link).

@Pawel Jarosz, it's been more than a year now. Do you perhaps know when this will be available? On the Microsoft Roadmap site, they say "ROLL OUT TEMPORARILY PAUSED", but there is no new date. The release date was set for July 2021, but that date has also passed.

Well, its now practically May 2022 and its still "in development", so the Jul 2022 General Availability "prediction" looks not achievable..... pretty disappointing for what is really a pretty basic functionality. Unfortunately, this is becoming pretty usual for Microsoft, concentrate efforts on "new sexy" features and put basic functionality on the back burner. :(
