is there a way to automagically add a disclaimer to the bottom of all outgoing mail, using exchange - i saw this ms article, but not being a script monkey, i was wondering if there was an easier option.

The only easier option is third party. The Microsoft "solution" has so many flaws with it that I don't even think it is worth considering.

The one I prefer to use is Exclaimer, but GFI also have a module of their Mail Essentials product that can do disclaimers. There are other disclaimer products as well. http://www.maildisclaimer.com/ is another. There is a good list here: http://www.msexchange.org/software/Disclaimers/
I have also used DisclaimIT which was quite good.

I use Exclaimer as it lets me build complete signatures on the fly and have different things for internal and external traffic.

Sembee is right i won't consider exchange to do that

I am pretty sure that you have an virus protection or spam protection in your company almost all those softwares allow you to enter disclaimers in the outgoing emails especially the spam control softwares

the other easy way is to upgrade to exchange 2007 and use a transport rule

I use Exclaimer. It is a really good product, however it can get pricey if you have a lot of users. GFI has a free product but it can only do one disclaimer. Here is a link:

Not the GFI myth again.

It is about time that GFI removed that as it is no longer available. You cannot download Mail Essentials 8 any longer, they are on version 11 now. That is almost 4 years old!

Oops, I apologize then. I have never used it, and saw it when I was researching products the other day for 2007.

I agree with Simon regarding Exclaimer.  It's main advantages include:

1)  separate disclaimer constructer in all three content types (html, rtf and plain text)
2)  pulling data from Active Directory
3)  ability to spot when a disclaimer is already present, which can reduce overall message size
4)  ability to selectively disable disclaimers or to give completely different ones based on users, etc.
