Email unsubscribe mechanism for Exchange Server (CASL compliance tool)

Canada’s anti-spam regulations (CASL) introduced the requirement of deploying an email unsubscribe mechanism that would allow users to easily opt-out from receiving correspondence from a given company or organization. Although this functionality is already a standard in marketing and mass mailing systems, Exchange Server, even in the latest versions, lacks this feature natively.

CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro is an advanced Exchange Server application based on a transport agent architecture. It adds many useful administrative features to Exchange covering such aspects as mail flow control, email signatures and disclaimers, attachment control, DLP and email forwarding options. Most importantly, it provides a complete email unsubscribe mechanism for Exchange Server that will let you comply with anti-spam regulations in Canada and many other countries.

CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro lets you:

  • Automatically add an unsubscribe link to all or selected emails
  • Create and maintain server-sided lists of unsubscribed email addresses
  • Block messages sent to unsubscribed recipients
  • Import/export lists of unsubscribed email addresses
  • Integrate with a mass mailing system’s unsubscribe mechanism used by your marketing department

About Canadian anti-spam law (CASL)

Canadian anti-spam law (CASL) went into force on July 1st, 2014. Following those regulations, if your company or organization sends out commercial emails to Canadian citizens, you need to be sure you have fulfilled 3 main requirements:

  1. To obtain an expressed or written consent from the message receiver to receive commercial emails from your company or organization.
  2. To clearly identify yourself in the message.
  3. To provide an unsubscribe link in the message for users that want to stop receiving further emails from you and your company or organization in the future.

Failing to meet these requirements may result in receiving a fine up to $1 million (for individuals) or $10 million (for businesses).

How can CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro help?

If your company uses Microsoft Exchange Server 2016, 2013, 2010 or 2007, CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro can help you stay in compliance with CASL and other similar acts.

Unsubscribe banner

The program needs to be installed directly on the mail server with Microsoft Exchange onboard. Once configured properly, CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro adds a complete set of features to Microsoft Exchange covering the email unsubscribe mechanism required by CASL.

If specific email rules are set, every email sent to outside your origination will be equipped with a disclaimer containing an unsubscribe link. If anyone clicks on it, he or she will be added to a recipients blacklist on your email server’s side. After that, whenever anyone from your company tries to send another message to this person, this message will be blocked.

The configuration of email unsubscribe mechanism in CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro is easy. You can use one of the predefined rules and adjust them to your individual needs.
All you actually need to do is create two email rules. The first one is responsible for blocking messages sent to unsubscribed recipients, the second adds an disclaimer with a unsubscribe link to emails.
You can have several lists of unsubscribed email addresses configured in the program. Each of them can work slightly differently from the other one, e.g. it can display a different notification.
Once a user hits an unsubscribe link in a message, his or her email address appears on the users' blacklist. The administrator can also easily add or remove email addresses manually.
