Introduction
CodeTwo Exchange Rules 2003 enables centralized addition of footers to messages processed by the Exchange Server 2000/2003 and Small Business Server. The program is installed at the server and this is where the footer insertion takes place; this facilitates the management of signatures/disclaimers for messages. The administrator is no longer burdened with deploying footers separately at each client computer and making sure that the users actually use them. Certainly, client-based footers remain enabled. Should you want to disable them, see this.

The program lets the administrator define rules to prevent end-users from tampering with the contents of the footers added to messages. A quick guide on creating a disclaimer rule is included at the following address.

Messages can receive various disclaimers and signatures depending on the sender and recipients. The senders and recipients' scopes can be defined by providing full or partial SMTP addresses, as well as the Active Directory groups, users, containers, or attributes. You can configure the rule to add footers directly below the response text or at the very end of the message. You can set the rule to add footers multiple times to the same message every time it travels through the server or once only. Also it is possible to define phrases suppressing disclaimers so that users can turn them off from their client computers when needed. One message can receive more than one footer, depending on the settings. More about rule creation and functioning...
