The Cloud Signature Update Agent allows you to synchronize signatures directly with the user's Outlook, on both Windows and macOS as well as Apple Mail.
If your subscription is configured with client-side signature rules, signatures can be synchronized to the users' local computers, for use in Microsoft Outlook on Windows.
For the synchronize process to work, the Cloud Signature Update Agent needs to be running on each user's computer.
But, if necessary, you can also deploy the Cloud Signature Update Agent via an MSI package.
This page describes the steps on how you can deploy the Cloud Signature Update Agent via GPO, and it consists of the following sections:
