Insert signature

The Insert signature action in CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO is used to add signatures to emails, that meet the criteria defined in Conditions.

This 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 to configure this action 

To activate the action click Add in the Actions tab and select Insert signature from the menu (Fig. 1.).

Please note that instead of creating a new signature template, you can make use of the predefined one in the Template Library.

Once a new signature is opened in the Editor, you can configure its content using the variety of available options, e.g. set the format, change fonts, insert pictures, tables, hyperlinks, placeholders etc.

Additionally, you can also decide what to do if the signature will already be present in the messages while forwarding or replying to mail and where it should be inserted within the composition (Fig. 4.). These options are available by clicking the ER Pro 2.x - toothed gear button:
