Exchange 2010 Transport Rule

We have a rule set up to add a custom signature to every internal email and external email from the company. Is there an exception i can add to the rule to not keep applying the signature on email replies? Like an ongoing conversation between people?

It looks really silly when you get to the bottom of an email string and there are a ton of signatures there.

I would set it up at the transport level only for external, like the legal disclaimer type, and I would set it up on the individual client workstations in Outlook, and have it not add the signature for replies.

Regards,
Chris M.

The exception would be having internal users have the signature built into outlook, with replies set to not insert the signature.

i use the exception in the transport rule to stop duplication of the signature(whether outlook signature is present or a reply email).  this can be set for internal or external as well

my transport rule is as follows:
apply message to rule:  
from members of a distribution group (my all users group),
action:append disclaimer text: "Securities offered through , member FINRA/SIPC.  Investment advice offered through a registered investment advisor and a separate entity from

exceptions: except when the subject field or body contains specific words:

Do email signature updates give you a headache?

Are you constantly making changes to email signatures? Are the images not formatting how you want them to? Want high-quality HTML signatures on all devices, including on mobiles and Macs? Then, let Exclaimer solve all your email signature problems today.

This might work for me because we also have a disclaimer applied to all messages so if it was on there already then the signature would be as well!!

I will give it a try in the morning! Thanks very much!

correct, the exception is on the transport rule.

a transport rule has definitions for a rule,an action, and an exception.

Ok I know I resolved this but now i have a similar concern.

We have this in testing mode and when a message originates from a mobile device ie iphone/android...

The signature looks awful. Instead of showing the images that are in there it shows the links of where they are saved.

Is there a way to program it so that it sends a different way from the phones?

The problem that you are seeing is caused by using  html in the disclaimer. iPhones send plain text email not html.The message is not converted by exchange from text to html on application of discalimer at transport. I am not sure if you can configure exchange to convert the message type.
