UPDATE (August 11, 2016): This program is already out of beta. Get a free trial here.
Up until now Office 365 admins who wanted to centrally manage email signatures in their organization had 2 choices: use Exchange Online mail flow rules, or spring for a 3rd party application.
However, while both solutions had their advantages, they also had major flaws – no 3rd party application fully supported mobile phones and non-Outlook/OWA clients, or could process emails based on multi-level conditions; Exchange mail flow rules, on the other hand, couldn’t insert signatures directly under the latest reply/forward and didn’t allow for using embedded images.
We thought that Office 365 admins deserved a way out of this conundrum. That’s why we’ve developed CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 – a Cloud-based Office 365 email signature management service which:
- is centrally managed;
- supports all types of standalone, web and mobile email clients;
- can insert signatures directly under the latest email in a thread;
- can embed images in email signatures;
- allows for configuring detailed email processing scenarios;
- sports a WYSIWYG HTML editor;
- automatically integrates with your Office 365 organization (no manual send connector setup!)
How it works?
CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 uses the Office 365 email relaying mechanism to route emails outside of your organization, then it processes them and returns them to your Office 365 tenant. Keep in mind that, because our software uses Microsoft Azure infrastructure, your mail does not leave Microsoft servers when it is being stamped with signatures. After an email is returned to your tenant, Office 365 picks up where it left off and sends it to its intended destination.
The below diagram illustrates the whole process:
Before we release CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365, we want to put our new product to the ultimate test – the user.

That’s great to hear! The RC version is already available. You can sign up for it over here: https://www.codetwo.com/email-signatures/beta-signup/?sts=5093
All RC users will be automatically upgraded to the official version as soon as it goes live.
Do we have a release date for this yet? I have some customers who are screaming out for Code Two Email Signatures for Office 365.
Hey there, Signatures seem to working great! thank you for the Beta. one question i have, is it possible to do an if a field is present then add it to the sig. For example not all my folks have mobile numbers and instead of creating 100 rules, it would be nice to say if mobile is present then add if null skip.
CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 can remove lines from the signature if they contain null attributes. You do this using RT Tags (article for a different product but the mechanism is identical): https://www.codetwo.com/userguide/exchange-rules-family/editor.htm?sts=5093#rt-tags
Would this work for you?
I signed up for the beta and haven’t heard anything. Can you please help me out with getting my invite
Of course – I’ll have someone from the beta team contact you.
Is there a way to get in touch with Beta Dev Team ? I tested the software and I have some concerns I would like to share with them.
Also, I was told by Tech support that CodeTwo Email Signature for Office 365 was supposed to go live in December 2015. What’s the ETA for General Release ?
The Beta Dev Team will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
As to the release – there was a slight delay and I am unable to give a new ETA. But if all goes well, the product will go live very soon.
Thanks for your message, Pawel!
Could you please hook me up with the beta program as well? I subscribed to it recently.
I am also currently trialing the email signatures software, and I agree that this sounds like the better way to go. I have different users in and out of the domain and in and out of the physical network, so setting up the msi files for connecting with the server side is not working out, right now (they try to connect with the local server, which is not local for them).
Thanks in advance!
Is it possible to get access to the beta? I’ve signed up for it.
I’m currently trialing the CodeTwo Email Signatures but it sounds like this version is the better way to go.
I forwarded your question to the beta program team – they will contact you ASAP.
We received the email with the access-code for the bêta-program and succesfully installed and configured signatures for office 365.
Thanx for your support
We have been awaiting your beta program for several months now. My colleague and me have registered for the beta program but heard nothing since.
We are aproaching the end of 2015 so I hope you have a launch date for us.
Otherwise is it possible for us to join the beta program?
Our representatives will contact you shortly with all the details.
We have been eagerly awaiting your beta programme for several months now. My colleague has sent a couple of emails registering our interest, but have heard nothing back.
Do you have a launch date and can are we eligible for the beta programme?
We’re hoping to have the product ready by the end of 2015. I’ve notified the beta program team about your question – they will get back to you as soon as possible.
Are there any additional updates for the release of the beta program?
I’ve forwarded you question to the beta program team – they will reply via email as soon as possible.
Thanks for the update.
We are still working on the beta version. This shouldn’t take too long though. Hopefully, a couple of days. Thanks for your patience!
Any info on pricing yet?
Also, will this tool be aimed at MSP’s too? Can I centrally manage all Office 365 signatures for multiple customers in a single console?
Yes I have, and I am anxiously awaiting the invites that have been promised.
Thank you Pawel,
I’m very interested in the beta as well, I’m willing to deal with testing process as long as we regain the functionality we lost.
That’s great to hear. Have you already signed up: https://www.codetwo.com/email-signatures/beta-signup/?sts=5093?
Any updates on when this product will be available? I lost the signature functionality we needed when my company migrated to Office 365 and I am very interested in purchasing this product and testing it.
CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 will be released later this year – we do not have a precise ETA yet. The beta program, on the other hand, will be starting very soon. By taking part you get a chance to test the product before its official release.
I will send answers to your questions to the email addresses you provided when posting comments.

All the best,
I wonder what the difference is between the current Code Two signatures? Except the current software is installed locally and this version is in the cloud.
So I fully understand does it work the same way as exchange rules 2010 in that it stamped the signature at the server instead of the client, as we currently use code 2 email signatures for 365 and I find this a bit cumbersome as the code 2 client often breaks and stops users receiving the new signature and it doesn’t work support smart phones unless you use OWA app
Current using CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro in-house and would prefer to continue to use this product when we complete our migration to hosted Office 365.
Will this product work with sending emails from smart phones
Yes, it will. Any email that travels through your Office 365 tenant can be stamped. This includes emails sent from smart phones.
All the best,
Does this process change any header information in the email?
We moved from CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro to CodeTwo Email Signatures out of necessity when transitioning from our own Exchange Server to an Office 365 hosted Exchange server. However, this transition resulted in our losing the ability to construct signatures with a dynamic banner ad on the right hand side of the email. This type of advert had proven very successful for us. And, since we had develop a great deal of marketing collateral in these vertical banner ads, we were very disappointed in the relative inferiority of this product. Also, there are companies to who we need to avoid sending certain ads since we sell their products and some of their competitors. The conditional formatting rules in Exchange Rules Pro helped us avoid inappropriate ads going to select destinations. Hopefully, this new version will restore this lost functionality in Email Signatures. I am signing up for the Beta test to find out. If it isn’t there, please place these items on the development list. Very important!!
That is so cool! We are planning on migration to Microsoft Hosted Exchange next year and we were hoping you would provide a mechanism for this environment. We currently use it on our Exchange 2010 server and would really hate to loose this feature. How about local users AD accounts. will we need to have AD integration setup with Office 365 for this to pull users AD info?
