Does Exchange 2007 include email signature management that can be pulled as fields from Active Directory and rolled out centrally to all the end users' Outlook?

If so, is this supported for Outlook 2003 and 2007?

Disclaimers can be enabled used transport rules in Exchange 2007 and will work on both Outlook 2003 and 2007. Pulling info from AD and populating it as a signature feature is not supported out of the box. You need to use third party programs the same way you use in Exchange 2003.

Exclaimer, Policy Patrol etc are a few of them. gives a few more.

So someone said no and someone said yes (?)

Rajith:  Any reason you can't just setup the Disclaimer to function as a signature?  Will it not allow fields from AD?

Cureadder:  Can you find documentation on Exchange 07 that shows the useability of managed signatures?  I looked briefly but couldn't find any from MS

No. You need to type in your disclaimer in the transport rule and it doesn't pick anything from AD.

Check for steps.
