Currently I have an disclaimer  for all machines that logs into the domain.  Management needs a disclaimer that appears when users open Outlook 2003 or 2007.  Is it possible to add a disclaimer to Outlook or a public folder.  

I am using Exchange 2007
Outlook 2003 and 2007 clients.

Are you saying that the management needs a disclaimer for both internal and external emails? If so, just create two transport rules for the same.

If they want to see a disclaimer when a user compose an email, then that has to be manually created, as it is a client side setting.

You can use vbscript to do this...i.e. need a disclaimer that appears when users open Outlook 2003 or 2007.
Paste code in notepad and save as filename.vbs

See script below...use it in the outlook shortcut path...

Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
oShell.Run "outlook.exe", 1, False 
MsgBox "This is a Disclamer. Use Outlook carefully",4096
Set oShell = Nothing

Open in new window
