Insert disclaimer/signatureThe Insert disclaimer/signature feature in Exchange Rules PRO is used to add signatures, disclaimers as well as graphic banners to emails.
The feature can be utilized to automate and facilitate the addition of company signatures, legal notes, branding etc. to company emails without installing additional software onto the client computers. The messages are stamped by CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO directly on the server.
How it works
If the rule is not activated at the server the messages will not contain a signature or disclaimer (Fig.1.). Once you configure the rule and activate it in CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO the messages that match the defined criteria (Conditions) will be stamped automatically with signatures and/or disclaimers (Fig.2.).

Each section includes the checkbox Do not insert disclaimer/signature if it is already found in the message that can be selected if you want the signature to appear once in a series of messages.
Additionally, the Bottom disclaimer section allows you to choose the location of the signature either Insert disclaimer/signature directly under the response text or Insert disclaimer/signature at the very bottom of the message.
Click OK to save the settings of the Disclaimer/Signature Options.
