Problems installing Exchange 5.5 Disclaimer.ZIP

I wanted to put a disclaimer on the bottom of our internet mail and Bunmi told me about this excellent utility called Disclaimer. Unfortunatly I can't get it to work.

I'm running Exchange Server 5.5 with SP3. At the bottom I have included the  the installtion instructions for Disclaimer.zip which point out that you will not be able to use the routing table unless you change the registry.
I need to use the routing table as I have three domain names set to be routed to <Inbound> becuase we have 15 users on macintosh using a pop3 client.

I copied the imsext.dll to D:\exchsrvr\connect\msexcimc\bin\imsext.dll and registered it on my Exchange Server.

I then created a registry string where  in the parameters key and set the value to D:\exchsrvr\connect\msexcimc\bin\imsext.dll. Now is this classed as a 'Full Path' to the IMS extension as that's what the installation asks for and I took a look through the registry and other strings are written like this.

I changed the routing over to the custom program (imsext.dll) and restarted the services and tried to send mail from a pop3 cliet and it didn't work. I recived this message :
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Below are the installation instructions.

Installing IMS Extension

Copy the IMS Extension (Imsext.dll) to your server. It is recommended that you use the directory where the Internet Mail Service resides: \exchsrvr\connect\msexcimc\bin.
From the directory where the IMS Extension is installed, register the IMS Extension by typing regsvr32 imsext.dll at the command prompt.
In the Exchange Administrator program, on the Routing tab of the Internet Mail Service Properties property page, specify the IMS Extension as the custom routing program.
Note   When you do this, you will not be able to use the routing table on that tab. Exchange 5.5 SP1 has made a change so that you can specify an IMS Extension without losing the routing table feature. To enable the IMS Extension in Exchange 5.5 SP1 without losing the routing table, create a registry string value named NonRoutingExtensionDll under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIMC\Parameters, and set its value to the full path of the IMS Extension DLL.

Create a registry key called "Extension" under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIMC\Parameters. Specify the features you want by setting the appropriate registry values. See Using IMS Extension for more information on setting the registry values.
Stop and restart the Internet Mail Service.

Well, I've never heard of this product called Disclaimer, but I can tell you that the file, imsext.dll, is a Microsoft file. Whoever this Disclaimer is, he's got a little legal problem to deal with.

This isn't going to help you reach your goal. You need to modify outgoing mail, but this puppy modifies the routing of inbound mail.

I know there are some products out there that do this, but the only name that comes to mind is MimeSweeper from Trend Micro; kinda pricey though.

Check http://www.slipstick.com. A ton of stuff there; might find what you're looking for.

Sorry couldn't be of more assistance.
