I want to find out on how to set up a boiler plate message to all the users in outlook- not individually and we are not on an exchange server.

Hi, marin1221.  

You're talking about a mail merge.  Here's a complete set of instructions for doing this using Outlook 2007.

A disclaimer.  I would never have guessed that was what you were looking for.  If you don't want to set something up at each computer and if you want to enforce the use of the disclaimer (i.e. prevent staff from turning it off or altering it), then the disclaimer has to be applied at the mail server.  Since you aren't using Exchange you'll have to talk to your internet mail provider and see if they offer a way of doing this.  

There are ways to do this at the client, some of which can be done without visiting each computer, but they can't normally be enforced (i.e. the user could turn them off or alter the disclaimer message).  Also without knowing more about your infrastructure I can't tell you if you can set them up without visiting each computer.
