    If your ISP/RBC does email content control then there might be an option to a disclaimer as part of the configuartion.

    I think GFI also do a product which can add a disclaimer.

    Otherwise, if you are really brave you can add one using event sinks.

    Disclaimers are pointless legally and technically, don't bother.

    If you're sure that you need one (or someone is twisting your arm) as far as I understand it, GFI made the disclaimer part of their MailEssentials package freeware a while back.

    http://www.gfi.com/news/en/mes8freedisc.htm

    It gives you a 60 day trial of the rest of the features but the disclaimer remains active and free after that...

    I use Exclaimer on my exchange box to do this, works well good program and it does internal and external as well as many other items that can be useful.

    You spend money, install Exclaimer on the exchange box, and then tell it to put X on all of e-mail outside of the company, and tell it to put Y on all internal mail. You can be really specific down to AD users if my brain is working correctly after a weekend off, its very enhanced stuff and I dont think its too badly priced for education/

    Talking about Exchange...

    which is the best tool/Program to see who is sending large files, blocking AVI's and Mpegs etc, checking out accounts, and maybe putting in Disclaimer/s

    Re: Default disclaimer for MS Exchange 2003

    I like Sophos Puremessage, it does file blocking / quarenteining and can do basic disclaiming (never tried it though so don't ask me how good it is as I have not tried).

    OK, I need to put a footer on all of our external bound e-mails.

    We run Exchange 2003 and I have followed the instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/317680/

    The EventSinkScript.vbs I created is:
    Code:
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
    Sub ISMTPOnArrival_OnArrival(ByVal Msg, EventStatus)
       TextDisclaimer = vbCrLf & "Monmouth School" & vbCrLf & "Registered Charity 525616"
       HTMLDisclaimer = "<p></p><p>Monmouth School<br>Registered Charity 525616"
    
       If Msg.HTMLBody <> "" Then
          'Search for the "</body>" tag and insert our disclaimer before that tag.
          pos = InStr(1, Msg.HTMLBody, "</body>", vbTextCompare)
          szPartI = Left(Msg.HTMLBody, pos - 1)
          szPartII = Right(Msg.HTMLBody, Len(Msg.HTMLBody) - (pos - 1))
          Msg.HTMLBody = szPartI + HTMLDisclaimer + szPartII
       End If
    
       If Msg.TextBody <> "" Then
          Msg.TextBody = Msg.TextBody & vbCrLf & TextDisclaimer & vbCrLf
       End If
        
       'Commit the content changes to the transport ADO Stream object.
       Msg.DataSource.Save ' Commit the changes into the transport Stream
    
       EventStatus = cdoRunNextSink
    End Sub
    </SCRIPT>
    and I made the smtpreg.vbs script from copying and pasting the code from the microsoft page.

    Registering the event sink in the two steps at the bottom of the page worked successfully, but I'm still not seeing any signature when I send a test e-mail to hotmail or gmail.

    I realise there's the MAPI issue that is mentioned at the bottom of the knowledgebase page, but as far as I can tell that will only fail run the event on internal mail as it never reaches the SMTP connector.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of where I may be going wrong please?

    OK so after more research it would appear that I can't use this event sink solution if I'm using Outlook as a mail client. Is there any way that anybody knows about to get around this without using another computer as a smarthost?
