If you are using our software to manage email signatures and disclaimers in Exchange, then this news is for you. We released a new version of the following products from the CodeTwo Exchange Rules family:
The new version brings significant changes to the Sent Items Update (SIU) service, which now uses the OAuth 2.0 authorization protocol to connect to Microsoft 365 (Office 365). Our Dev team also made improvements to the program’s architecture and introduced several fixes to problems reported by our customers.
It’s a new Web Add-in, developed together with Microsoft, that will work with Outlook for Windows, OWA and Outlook for Mac, and add client-side signatures to the email body in real time. This add-in can be deployed from within the Microsoft 365 admin center company-wide, without any user interaction.
See our CEO’s session hosted by the Microsoft Outlook Add-in Team at Ignite:
Please note that this add-in will reach GA around December, but closed beta invites will be sent out soon.
Microsoft Ignite 2020 is just around the corner and we have some very exciting things planned for the event. We’ll be joining a session hosted by Microsoft during which we will present a brand new feature for our flagship product, CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365.
The latest update to CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 brings a new functionality to the program’s built-in signature template editor – conditional placeholders. Unlike regular placeholders, which are filled with senders’ information pulled from Azure AD (such as name, job position, phone number, etc.) or message properties, conditional placeholders can be used to add customizable information (text, images, animations, and even HTML code snippets) to email signatures. This new type of placeholders also allows you to insert generic information into signatures, for example when some user Azure AD attributes are missing. Read on to find out how these placeholders work, what they can do, and how to start using them in your Microsoft 365 (Office 365) email signature templates.
Today, CodeTwo celebrates another great success with Microsoft. After being named Microsoft Partner of the Year 2019 in the ISV category last year, we are extremely proud and excited to announce that CodeTwo has been recognized as Microsoft 2020 Partner of the Year Finalist in the Customer Experience category.

Microsoft is going to introduce roaming signatures, a new feature for Outlook for Windows. The new feature changes the way Outlook email signatures are stored. The signatures will no longer be stored on a local drive – they will now be stored in the user mailbox, which will make them available on all devices running Outlook for Windows that have been configured with this user’s email account. When this feature is rolled out (initially scheduled for Q4 of 2020), it will be automatically enabled for all Microsoft 365 users. According to Microsoft 365 roadmap item 60371, users who use Microsoft 365 Monthly Channel (early adopters) might get this feature as early as November 2020. As there is a lot of inaccurate information regarding the feature, let’s explain what this feature really is and whether it affects CodeTwo solutions at all.
We are pleased to inform you that CodeTwo Backup for Office 365 in now listed on Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This means you can now use a pre-configured Azure virtual machine with our app to back up Exchange Online mailboxes, SharePoint Online sites, as well as OneDrive for Business and Teams data. It only takes a few minutes to deploy the VM in your Azure environment.
A new version of CodeTwo Office 365 Migration and CodeTwo Exchange Migration is out. With this release, we’ve added another layer of security to our migration tools by switching to the OAuth 2.0 authorization protocol to access Office 365. We’ve also completely redesigned Office 365 connection wizards and introduced modern APIs that further improve the performance and reliability of both programs.
