How we integrate with Office 365 to add email signatures

CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 uses Exchange Online email connectors to integrate with Office 365 tenants of our clients and then safely reroute their email through our signature services on Azure. Since uninterrupted email flow is critical, we do our best to keep this integration the most secure and reliable on our end.

One of the latest Microsoft articles demonstrates the way third-party apps can integrate with Office 365 (where email add-on service installation is not allowed). The article uses a fictional service called ‘Contoso Signature Service’ to picture what such integration should ideally look like. Email signatures? Connectors? Does it ring a bell? That’s right! This is the exact same approach we have been using in CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 since day one. The only difference is that we have automated the integration process completely on our end. Meaning, every step, from setting up the connectors, right down to assigning a required TLS certificate is done automatically by a specially designed wizard in our program.

After the setup is completed, the mail flow looks the same way, as on the diagram from the Microsoft article:

You don’t have to do any manual work to start using our product. You can, however, be sure we always follow the best practices and highest quality standards to keep your email communication safe.

Unhandled exception: Happy Easter!

Easter is just around the corner. In Poland, just like in many other countries, this is the time when we gather at home with our families and friends. We also cook a lot and eat a lot (…I mean really a lot). Many of us have already begun the preparation a few days ago, while others (including me), will rush to groceries today, right after the work, to join the food preparation madness right at its peak (wish me luck).

No matter which stage of preparation you’re currently at, we wish you all wonderful holidays and a great time spent with the ones you love. Please bear in mind that we’re closed on Easter Monday (April 17th). We’ll be back with you on Tuesday, right after the Easter break.

Happy Easter from CodeTwo guys!

Happy Holidays from CodeTwo!

As 2016 comes to an end we are all preparing for a short Christmas break. Although many of us have planned a longer break during this period, CodeTwo Customer Service will be available for you for the most of the time. Our office will be only closed on weekends (as usually) and on Monday, December 26th.

This has been a great year for us here at CodeTwo. In June, our new product for managing email signatures and disclaimers in Office 365, CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365, went out of beta stage and immediately gained your attention. Over the last few months we managed to add some unique features to it which now make it the most advanced and versatile email signature solution for Office 365 on the market.

We also didn’t forget about the rest of our solutions for Exchange Server and Office 365 that were constantly developing throughout the year. For instance, our Exchange & Office 365 migration solutions gained IMAP support and the programs for creating backup copies of Exchange/Office 365 mailboxes have been improved with the possibility to back up public folders. CodeTwo Backup will soon see another major update which will make it possible to back up SharePoint and OneDrive for Business folders. The beta program for this version is just about to start!

We look forward to 2017 and the new challenges ahead of us. But as for now, we wish you all wonderful and peaceful holidays. See you back right after Christmas!

How to set autoreply for another user in Exchange Server or Office 365

UPDATE: We are sorry, but CodeTwo Out of Office Manager mentioned in this article has been discontinued. If you are looking for an alternative for Exchange Server, take a look at the auto respond feature in CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro.

During the holiday season, many IT admins face the problem of setting an autoreply for another user on Exchange Server or Office 365. The story is often the same… An employee goes on vacation and forgets to set the autoreply in the Exchange/Office 365 mailbox. The only person capable of fixing this is usually the IT guy, who can use his or her admin rights to set the autoreply in Exchange Admin Center.

While many administrators don’t mind performing such small office tasks, others may find it distracting and would rather delegate setting autoreplies for users to a secretary or an HR specialist. In this article I am going to show you how you can grant Exchange or Office 365 autoreply editing rights to another user – not necessarily the admin – by installing a smart 3rd party tool called CodeTwo Out of Office Manager. Let’s get started then! Continue reading...

Using Google Analytics to track email signature marketing campaigns

When you first think of email marketing, newsletters and marketing automation are probably the first ideas that come to your mind. What marketers often forget, is that these two pretty obvious associations are not the only options here. Another great way of promoting your products and brand by email, are certainly centrally managed email signatures. Since email footers can contain branding and marketing banners, taking full control of what is stamped in employees’ signatures is a marketing opportunity no company should miss.

Wise marketers, however, not only run marketing campaigns, but also collect proper web analytics data to judge how their campaigns perform. This is usually the key to adjusting the marketing efforts and making them more effective in the future. In this article, I will show you how to use Google Analytics (currently the most widely used web analytics platform) for tracking your email signature marketing campaigns. I will use CodeTwo Exchange Rules for creating a company-wide email signature on Exchange Server and Google custom campaign parameters, for tagging the links used in it. I will also show you how to access the statistical information collected by means of the URL tags in the Google Analytics interface. Let’s cut to the chase then! Continue reading...
