  • Transport rules, adding a disclaimer with link

    Your very useful instruction on adding a disclaimer:

    (I may not post the link, but its at the root with the file name transport-rules-adding-a-disclaimer.htm.)

    The instruction includes an example in which the second disclaimer ends with a link. You also state that urls may get converted to links. How should a text be written for that to happen? What coding?

    Is this possible with just Exchange 2007?

    I'm replying to myself:

    I decided to install GFI Mailessentials, which claims that the disclaimer-function is freeware and will continue to function even after the standard trial-period.

        GFI Mailessentials seems to work quite ok. It is not as configurable as transport rules in exchange, but it allows adding freely modifiable html-code.

        So it works out of the box as follows: it adds to all outgoing (not internal) emails a disclaimer, but only once (so replying to a thread will add the disclaimer at the first time). Rather good and useful.

        My problem is this: I cannot configure it to add the same disclaimer to internal messages. And this would be necessary so that we could archive exactly such emails as leave the organisation. If I add an internal archiving address, the mail will not get the disclaimer.

        Any ideas?

          I don't think you can, as I have mailessentials and with emails internally it doesn't tack the disclaimer to the bottom of the email so I guess it could be by design?

            PolicyPatrol will apply internal disclaimers -- not free, though

              Although PolicyPatrol is more honed to mail & spam than email footers!

                You could look at Exclaimer.

                  I concur, that's what we use, although I have had issues in the past (admittedly with Exchange 2003) when internal email is disclaimed.

                    Depends which version you use.
                    Separate ones for
                    Anti-spam
                    Archiving
                    Disclaimers

                    or one All-in-one version

                      You can also use Codetwo Exchange Rules. It is freeware with no time limits and can be set up for inbound, outbound and internal correspondence as well. The only disadventage is that it adds a little ad line at the bottom of each disclaimer which says: Disclaimer added by CodeTwo Exchange Rules. If you don't want this add, you need to buy a license.

                      Check it out on CodeTwo website.
