    exchange outgoing mail disclaimer/footer

    Hi ppl,

    Does anyone know offhand know an easyish way to make a disclaimer/organisation footer go out with every outgoing mail from exchange 2003? I have been up best part of the night looking into this and the best I could find was creating an event sink and registering a VB script using the Exchange SDK? Am seriously blurry eyed and dazed and confused!

    Can anyone offer a simple set of instructions on how to achieve this?

    TIA

    Nobody bothers to read them. Surely it's much better to get a lawyer involved if and when he/she is needed to fix a problem as opposed to attempting to counter it with a message on the bottom of an e-mail.

    A lot of big scale establishments dont put disclaimers on the e-mails then i'm not entirely sure why primary or secondary education might. (I can veryify however that staffordshire uni arent putting disclaimers on student mail at the very least)

    The ICT staff at my school used to tell students that the e-mail was a privilage that could be revoked and that it bears the school's name in the domain so anything they sent would be seen as a reflection upon the school. So they all just used it for internal spamming.

    ffs!!!!

    I wasn't asking for your personal opinion on whether disclaimers at the bottom of emails was a good idea or not or bad practice/good etiquette!!

    All I was asking was how do I add something on the end of the email. Did it not also occur to you that I may have also wanted to add the name and address of the organisation as well to add that personalized touch to the outgoing email.

    Quite frankly I couldn't give a flying f*ck whether kiddies at blah blah had their email privileges revoked because they putting naughty words in their emails character spaced by underscores!!! Thats not the issue that i'm currently losing tons of sleep over!

    I guess I will have to bite the bullet and install that exchange SDK and try the event sink method and hope that the exchange server doesnt go tits up in the process!

    Hmmppppphhhhhhhhh

    Exclaimer works well and its only something like £70 for the licence for schools, so just buy that, and install and voilla its done.

    If you're loosing sleep over exchange then it must be bad.

    There is some function of sophos that will do it IIRC.

    @Joedetic - Sophos Puremessage will do it but it's an expensive piece of software if you only want it for that.

    @NetDiag - calm down, yes you did only ask if there was a simple way to do it that anyone knew, nothing wrong with people sharing their opinions though surely? Especially when, to be fair, all comments were helping you out of doing anything at all.

    I know you don't care but I'm going to say it anyway, even adding one's organization name looks messy when someone's got it in their personal signature aswell.
