Is it possible for an Exchange server administrator to create a filter the will not permit messages to be sent based on contents of the subject or body fields.  This is for outbound messages so the filter must be added to the smtp server.

The filter must be server based.  The solution can not be based on installing something within outlook.

If the capabilities don’t exist in-side of the Exchange server, a program that connects to the exchange server is also permissible solution.

3rd party is your best bet for software on this one:

GFI mail essentials comes to mind. Search google.com for spam filter software, and you'll get a ton or responses. Brightmail and Clearswift also make gateway/SMTP filtering solutions along with Symantec. Take your pick...be careful though, some of this stuff only works with a front end SMTP solution.

I guess I was not clear in stating my question:

I DO NOT want to filter messages coming INTO the company. I want to filter messages going OUT OF the company.

So, if an employee uses bad language when sending an email, I want to be able to filter it out.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!
