Exchange 2007 Disclaimer Domain Exclusion

I need to exclude the standard disclaimer from being sent to any member of a certain external domain.

The current Transport Rule is as follows:-

***Rule Starts***

Apply rule to messages
from users Inside the organisation
append (Disclaimer)
using (font options)
except when the message is sent to users Inside the organization

***Rule Ends***

I need to exclude members with an external domain suffix (@variable.com) from receiving the disclaimer but there is no standard exception that allows me to do this without creating a new distribution list and excluding said list which means manually keeping that list up to date. Not an option.

Thanks
Dave

Hi

You can create exception by choosing TO header field with the domain in question.

Therefore select: "except when the text specific words appears in a message header"

And set: except when the text @domain.com appears in a TO (where @domain.com and TO are the variables you set)

Hi Ste,

Thanks for your response. How would I add multiple variables? e.g. TO and CC

Is the variable case sensitive?

Thanks

Hi Dave,

You could add in an or in the exception, so appears in TO or CC

I don't believe that the variable is case sensitive either.

Hi Ste,

I tried the exception but a space is not a valid character. I looked a bit deepe into Transport Rule Predicates and found some interesting things.

1) Text string must be in quotes
2) Predicates run inherent commands

I used the rule to create an exception using "when a message header contains specific words", clicked on "message header" and inserted "@domain.com" appears in a AnyOfToCcHeader so the rule now looks like this:-

***Rule Starts***
Apply rule to messages
from users Inside the organisation
append (Disclaimer)
using (font options)
except when the message is sent to users Inside the organization
  or except when the "@domain.com" appears in a AnyOfToCcHeader
***Rule Ends***

I'm now testing and will post resolution.

Thanks

Hey All,

Did anyone find a solution that worked for this problem? I also have a requirement to not have a disclaimer at all when sending to a specific domain (an SMS gateway).

Nope, no luck yet. Moved this one to the back burner due to another interesting problem which took up the last few days.

Will revisit this next week. Post if you find a solution please, I will do likewise.

Just made some changes and it now seems to be functioning.
If you set the exclusion as 'Except when the text patterns appears in a message header' and add the domain as the text pattern in the To header it will work.

I didn't add the domain in quotations so the exclusion actually reads as...

"or except when the domain.com appears in a To"

Let me know if it works for you.

The solutions supplied worked for any mail going to the domain.com (without the "@") but doesn't allow for the CC field.
