adding a disclaimer

Hey. I wanted to add a disclaimer to all the outgoing emails in Exchange 2003. Is it possible to do this using just MS technology? from ESM or something? I saw a few places where you have to download some code and make the emails forwarded through certain port or something. But, anyways, if someone can give me a proc or site which explains how to do it not through scripting, it would be great. thank you.

Ok I will do the work for you. I must be in a good mood today.
A search of the MS Knowledge base using the keywords EXCHANGE 2003 DISCLAIMER revealed the following:
How to add a disclaimer to outgoing SMTP messages in Visual Basic;en-us;317327

How to add a disclaimer to outgoing SMTP messages in Visual Basic script;en-us;317680

People tend to learn and retain more when they do the research.
Good luck.
You have 2 choices:
1-- An event sink which requires scripting. Search the MS Knowledge Base using EXCHANGE DISCLAIMER for the keywords.

2-- 3rd party products. GFI Mail Essentials will do this for you. You can download a 60 day trial at When the trial expires, the disclaimer stays functional. There are also other 3rd party products that do this. Google using disclaimer and exchange

I'm sorry, exchange admin. But, what i was looking for was a scripting way to do this. I know these ways which i've hinted in the question itself. Please let me know if you have any other way of doing this as i'm asking for a delete and refund for this question. Thank you.
