How to save a signature as a template


You want to save the signature you’re working on as a template so that you can use it again in the future.


Saving signatures as templates is a simple way to reduce the time spent on creating multiple signatures that do not differ much. It also allows you to easily restore the signature to its saved version in case of any unwanted modifications.

All the programs from the CodeTwo Exchange Rules software family are equipped with the template library that contains many predefined templates and can also store your custom templates.

To save a signature as a template, follow the instructions for your version of the program:


Note that CodeTwo Exchange Rules 2007, 2010 and 2013 are now deprecated.

Note that if you're using multiple Administration Panels in your environment, each panel will have its own template library. Templates stored in one instance of the template library will not be synchronized across all the panels.

Now, if you open the template library in the editor and select my templates in the Categories menu on the right, your custom signature will be available on the templates list (Fig. 2.). When finding your newly created template on the list, remember that the templates are sorted by their name. When you locate your template, simply click it to insert it into the editor.
