Phantom Signature Exchange 2010

I want to remove an auto-signature from a single mailbox.  It is a domain policy created by somebody that is no longer here but I can't find out where the policy is originating from.  There are no rules defined under the Transport Rules box where this is normally configured.  I do, however, see the GPO enabled to disable users from changing their signatures.  Where in the heck is this thing coming from??

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Transport rules or an app are the usual sources. AV/Antispam software that integrates with Exchange can do it as well.
Does the signature apply through OWA/ActiveSync as well?
If not, then it is probably something client side being deployed via Outlook. If it does, then it is server side.

have you checked on the local security policy on the exchange server itself.

Run rsop.msc and check the gpo applied at user level facing this issue.
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

Hi jhill777att,

Sembee hinted at 3rd party signature managers. Most (e.g. ours) are based on Transport Agents. So if you don't feel like scrolling through Control Panel, try running get-transportagent in Exchange Management Shell. This will produce a list of transport agents on your server - you can paste the list here for me to take a look.

Best regards,

It is a 3rd party app but nobody knows what it is.  The mail disclaimer routing agent and the transport rule agent are enabled.  The transport rule in exchange is just a mailer daemon hide all mailer daemon emails.

I think I just found it.   It's called Exclaimer.
Simon Butler (Sembee)ConsultantCommented:
It is pretty easy to exclude users in Exclaimer. The app should be installed on the server, if you cannot see it then look in add/remove programs to see which version you have then contact Exclaimer to get the installer and reinstall it.

JasonAuthor Commented:
Yeah, I added the exemption.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
