Hi I hope you can help..
I have just created some simple bash scripts which run Applescripts via osascript so users can then run from SelfService to add signatures to Outlook or Apple Mail. (Big Sur)
The PPPC all works and everything works on Intel.
But on the M1 mac the scripts fail or request authentication so ignoring the PPPC profile and when it run after accepting it doesn't do as the script intended so no signatures are added.
I must be missing something somewhere? Can some one point me in the right direction please? Is there a PPPC setting for rosetta? or something else.. Thanks Rob

Specific to Microsoft Outlook, it has a preview mode that anyone can turn on to change to "New Outlook", which has a redesigned interface and different underlying code. Be sure you're testing against the "old" Outlook because the newer version does not support AppleScript.

Thanks talkingmoose it seems that the M1 Macs just don't like the code they are on the older Outlook Settings. I have posted the scripts below in-case anyone can see the reason maybe? The scripts run fine on Intel Macs the M1s run through the script as if installed but doesn't create the signatures.. very odd a little stumped.
Id love to get this working on M1's too, if anyone knows why this isn't working and how to get it to work that would be fantastic..

I see a similar problem with a script that works fine on Intel Macs but fails on M1 Macs, I fear there are still a few bugs in macOS for M1...
