How to use the extra custom fields in Active Directory in the CodeTwo Exchange Rules editor.
The built-in editor in CodeTwo Exchange Rules 2003 includes a functionality enabling quick and easy insertion of AD placeholders that are filled with data dynamically when the message travels through Exchange Server. Apart from the standard fields (e.g. First Name, Last Name, Company, Title Department), the AD button allows using extra placeholders, listed under Exchattr - Fig. 1. and Fig. 2.
These placeholders will prove useful if you need to insert customized information into the messages dynamically but the do not fall into the standard categories such as Title, Department etc. So where do we edit the Exchattr fields? Fig. 2. shows the Exchange Advanced tab in the User Mailbox Properties that you need access to edit the extra fields.
Fields named extensionAttribute correspond to the placeholders available in the signature editor. Once they have been properly edited, their functioning will be identical to the standard placeholders.
