I need either free or cheap software to add email disclaimer to Exchange 2003 Standard

I have an existing Exchange 2000 server that I have been using the free edition of GFI essentials to add an email disclaimer to some peoples emails, using a distribution group to add the disclaimer to just some of the users emails (The other users are in a different office and their boss prefers them to add it in the Outlook client) so I have to be able to distinguish between the 2 groups of people.
I am migrating to a 2003 server (finally) and need to be able to add the disclaimer, but the free version of GFI essentials is no longer available.
Could someone either name a free or cheap 3rd party piece of software (max 50 users) that could do this. Or is there another way, I saw something about using scripts but I have very little scripting experience and the Microsoft article just confused me

Use "Exclaimer Mail Utilities".  www.exclaimer.com.  It is probably the friendliest and most powerful I have seen.  You can get a 30 day free trial.  It also can put anything you want in a outgoing message, graphics, fields from Active Directory, etc.  Another neat feature is it can put the messages on External bound messages and not on Internal, even when both are addressed in a single message.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

GFi MailEssentials. Easy to setup and great antispam as well.

Sorry, I must have been distracted reading the original problem! The full version of MailEssentials supports user and domain based disclaimers, but not group based at the moment :(

A possible free solution, using a VBS based SMTP event sink, can be found at:

Exclaimer fits you like a fine glove...all of the various softwares use Event Sinks.  They are the front end to create the Sink in the background so you don't have to.  If you are really good at scripting and have a pretty good understanding of Active Directory you could write your own sinks.  However, you can easily break your Exchange flow as well.  Probably the time you spend creating working sinks, at say $20 / hour will easily pay for software that will take minutes to setup and maintain.
