Hi,
Is there a way to put a signature at global domain level where the sender's information is brought through from their account details in AD.

Name
Contact no
Department
email address
Company name

Just an option I'm looking into as the bosses want a corporate image and this is included in their plans.
Doing at a global level would enforce where if left to individuals, it would be done and not in a standard way either.

Running Exchange 2003 Ent. on a W2k3 box with XP SP2 clients using OWA and outlook 2003 and 2007

Any ideas?

Many thanks

This can only be done with 3rd party software for Exchange 2003.  It is a built-in feature of Exchange 2007, in case you're thinking of upgrading any time soon.  Exclaimer is a good one. This is also a feature of GFI Mail Essentials, which has the added benefit of being anti-spam software:

However, if you already have an anti-spam network level product, this may be overkill for you.

Thanks for replies. Do you know if exclaimer would work on OWA?
Yes I am thinking of upgrading to 2007 and you're positive this will do what I need it to?

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

You can try exclaimer if required. The 30 days trial version has all the functionality of the fully licensed version.

I f i am not wrong email disclaimers are part of exchange 2007 but adding signature by pulling information from AD is not really an built-in feature. You can do it using some scripts. Please refer the article.

Subsun is correct about the email disclaimers in Exchange 2007 - I wasn't paying close enough attention to the scope of the information you wanted to add to each email.  A tool like Exclaimer will do much better for what you want.
