Generate Signatures in Exchange 2010 for replies and forwards

Hello All,

I am implementing an Exchange 2010 environment and part of the implementation is to have signatures generated from Active Directory.

I have created two (2) transport rules to generate the signatures, one for internal e-mail and one for external e-mail (Different information shown).

When I send an e-mail, the signature is generated and attached, so everything seems to be working.  But when I reply to a message, the signature is not added to the e-mail.

My transport rule looks like:

from users that are inside the organization
sent to users that are inside the organization
append disclaimer text and fallback to 'wrap' if unable to apply.

Any ideas?  I've googled and searched around for this and I don't seem to find anyone with this issue.

This occurs on both internal and external e-mails, but only on replies and forwards...

Thank you,

Brian

Brian,

This may sound silly, but did you check the very bottom of the message for the signature?

Because I was testing in OWA 2010 and Gmail I was unable to see the true bottom of the e-mail message until I got home and logged into my personal e-mail in Outlook.  I guess now I just need to figure out if I want to block the automatically generated signature on Replies and Forwards since it can't be added inline, only at the very top or very bottom...

Oh well, thanks Auric.

No problem, let me know how you fare out, I don't know if there is a way to differentiate between a new message and a forward/reply using hub transport rules.  (Short of checking the subject for RE: and FWD: but that may be problematic)

The other thing you may want to do is look at a third party tool called Exclaimer, it wasn't terribly expensive.

I haven't looked at that one, but I've seen others.  The problem with those programs is that 90% of my organization uses OWA, so I don't know that Signature managers will work, I'll give them a call though and see what they say.  Most likely I will find a hack to manually create signatures for everyone's OWA that will include basic information like name, title, and cell phone number for replies and forwards.  Not sure that a reply/forward really needs to have the full on signature.

Thanks again!

as far as a 'hack' is concerned, you can probably use the ECP to set it up, not sure how many users you are talking about though?

As far as i know Exclaimer runs on the server and uses Active Directory to build the signature, much like the hub transport rule.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
