CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365.

Supported platforms and requirements

CodeTwo Email Signatures for Email Clients is designed to work in Windows operated networks (either domain or workgroup) with or without Exchange Server or Exchange Online. There are two main components that have to be installed. Each has a different purpose and slightly different requirements. Study the description and table below to get an overview of supported systems and requirements enabling its smooth and uninterrupted operation.

CodeTwo Email Signatures for Email Clients Administration Panel is a set of components (Updating Service, Administration Panel) allowing administrative management and responsible for updating signatures on Exchange, Office 365 and pushing signatures changes to Client Apps.

CodeTwo Email Signatures for Email Clients Client Apps insert signatures to emails sent from Outlook.

Software components
Server side: One instance of Administration Panel must be installed within local network.
User side: End-users must install Client Apps if they wish to add signatures to emails sent from MS Outlook or OWA on Exchange 2007.
Administration Panel
Required permissions: Local Administrator rights are necessary to install and use Administration Panel module.
The Administrator's account used for establishing a connection to Exchange Server on-premises or Exchange Online needs to have impersonation rights granted on users' mailboxes. By default, such rights are granted to users with the Global Admin role (Exchange Online / Office 365) and to members of the Organization Management group (on-premises Exchange Server). Google Apps (G Suite) require some additional configuration steps. See our KB for Role Based Access Control (RBAC) compliance.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is supported. Be sure to use the app password instead of your regular password when configuring a connection to an Office 365 server. Learn more
