How to not add disclaimer if already there?

I've got a disclaimer on outgoing mail. Is there an exeption or something else I can add that will not add the disclaimer if already there?

The Boss thinks it looks untidy, but I can't see any way of doing this.

Thanks

Hi, rowdybeans.

That depends on how the disclaimer is being added.  If it's being added at the server as messages are sent, then it's unlikely that there's a way to work around it.

If you are using the transport rule method to add the disclaimer then no. It is rather dumb. You will need to use a third party tool to manage the disclaimer.

Although I believe on a legal point of view the disclaimer should be applied to each message, because the previous disclaimer is for the previous message. Although disclaimers in general have never been tested in court (I wish someone would then we could get rid of them) so the legal state could be questionable.
