Program's architecture

CodeTwo Exchange Rules is a program used for adding footers to messages traveling through the Exchange Server. Its architecture is based on two components responsible for the creation of email rules and their processing:

  • Exchange Rules Service - it is a set of services responsible for processing rules, and settings defined within the Administration Panel and applying them to messages traveling through the Exchange Server.
  • Administration Panel - it is the management console used to configure rules and other settings associated with the program's operation.

The diagram below shows the architecture of the program (Fig. 1.).

It is necessary to choose the Exchange Rules Service while performing installation on the Exchange Server with the Mailbox role (Exchange 2019/2016/2013*) or the Hub Transport role (Exchange 2010*/2007*). Therefore, this component needs to be installed on each Exchange Server with the roles mentioned above. On the other hand, the Administration Panel's installation should be performed on any machine within the domain. However, please do it wisely and install it only on machines whose users will be delegated to manage the program.

* CodeTwo Exchange Rules 2007, 2010 and 2013 are deprecated.
