    Client side disclaimers (XP)

    Client wants to have disclaimers automatically appended to email (ie. so users cannot circumvent it, so templates and built in signatures capability are no good), and wants to do in on the OutlookXP client (before signatures and encryption, so it is PKI friendly). Client wants flexability, though, so will need some logic to choose between several standard versions, which I will want to store centrally so I can change them easily.

    Options:
    a) be a code junkie - catch the item_send event, and use custom code
    [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] use the rules wizard to run the code - either using the new run a script action to fire code from the OTM, or using the run code action with the Launcher
    c) ??? anyone know of something close? - I would love to BUY rather than BUILD, if its been done before.

    Ideas? Reflections?

    (BTW, I know about the problems handling RTF message bodies, and we have already licked them - I have sample snippets capable of inserting text into RTF)

    Re: Client side disclaimers (XP)

    I believe gateway filtering software such as SurfControl can do something along these lines. At the very least I know it can attach footer text to all outbound messages. Not inexpensive but its main feature of filtering viruses and content makes it worthwhile. <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15>

    Re: Client side disclaimers (XP)

    Thanks for the thought Granville. Those solutions invalidate S/MIME digital signatures (some of them work with PGP, which lets them modify the email without invalidating the signature). You can't even just attach a disclaimer as a txt file- still invalidates the signature.

    I am now working with a development house to build this. Let me know if anyone is interested...
