This article is obsolete and may relate only to older versions of our software.


CodeTwo Exchange Rules enables adding disclaimers/signatures both to internal and external messages.


To add the disclaimer only for external recipients, you need to configure the appropriate rule in the Administration module. With CodeTwo Exchange Rules it is extremely simple as the main administration window contains a button to quickly create a rule of this kind. See the program's main window in Fig. 1 and Fig. 2.

​Exchange Rules 3.x, 2007 2.x and 2010 1.x:

  1. To expand the options click the small downward arrow next to the Add button.
  2. Choose Disclaimer for outgoing/external mail. The rule wizard will open.
  3. By default the senders' scope is set to include everyone from the organization. If necessary , feel free to narrow down the scope. Also you can add Exceptions in the lower field. In the Exceptions field, you can too use the Active Directory integration Fig. 3.
