Add disclaimer to outbound mails

We need to add a disclaimer to all outbound mails (Windows Server 2000 SP4 and Exchange 2000 SP2), so we have registered an event sink following these instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/317680/en-us.

It appears the following message:

Set property ScriptName to “C:\Archivos de programa\Exchange SDK\SDK\Support\CDO\Scripts\ EventSinkScript.vbs”

But the event sink seems to be registered:

C:\Archivos de programa\Exchange SDK\SDK\Support\CDO\Scripts>cscript smtpreg.vbs

Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host versión 5.6
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1996-2001. Reservados todos los derechos.

Source {1B3C0666-E470-11D0-AA67-80C04FA345F6} {
  DisplayName = smtpsvc 1
  OnArrival Sinks {
    Binding {696D1AE2-5466-450F-A1FB-327113BA32A0} {
      DisplayName = SMTPScriptingHost
      SinkClass = CDO.SS_SMTPOnArrivalSink
      Status = Enabled
      SourceProperties {
        Priority = 0
        Rule = mail from=*@mydomain.com
      SinkProperties {
        ScriptName = C:\Archivos de programa\Exchange SDK\SDK\Support\CDO\Script

But nothing appears attached to outbound mail.

We are using a MAPI client (Outlook 2003) and we know about the problem with SMTP conectors (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/273233/en-us). The problem is that there is only one Exchange Server on our organization, with one SMTP conector by default.

Maybe this could be made creating another SMTP conector … somebody has tried? Any help will be appreciated.

I don't remember the exact details...but you can't run this event sink on a single exchange server.  You have to relay through another server (i believe it can even be just a win2k/xp box with smtp service running, or ISA if you're running it), and run the event sink there.  The problem is that the everything is IMAP until it leaves the exchange server - at which point it's smtp...so if you relay it to another server, it's smtp when it gets there...

I'll try to look up my docs from when i did this quite a while ago.

to continue what i was saying - the problem is that the event sink only runs on SMTP, so it has to leave exchange for it to become SMTP
