Dynamic Signatures? ( Hub Transport Rule? )

Hey Everyone!

I can create an eMail signature no problem via a Hub Transport Rule, but what I'm really interested in is what, " Dynamic Signatures" has to offer... Reading this feature from Microsoft Exchange 2010 is a bit confusing, but maybe straight forward and I'm just not getting it, so to the question. Can you create a special Hub Transport Rule that will pull certain AD attributes such as Firstname, Lastname, Phone, Address, etc if these fields are populated in AD and append in an outgoing eMail? I'm playing with a new Hub Transport Rule that I named, " Signatures" , but when choosing the, " Condition" there are only two AD selections:

1) " if the AD Attribute evaluate with value"

2) " if the sender and recipient's AD Attribute are Evaluation"

selecting either of these there are actually some AD variables you can select from a list which has most of the AD attributes I would want in a signature but just can't figure out how to append that information. Maybe this is not the design of Dynamic Signatures?

Help??

Thanks!

Stephan

Hi Stephen,

I can't remember what the case was way back when the beta was released, but I think (hopefully someone that *knows* chimes in) you might need to use a disclaimer rule and then variables like %%surname%% or %%department%% can be used to inject signatures. You can also use HTML coding as well to incorporate standardized colors and fonts.

Awesome, this worked without a problem - thanks for the reply on this. I couldn't find the answer anywhere! Looks like Exch2010 actually has Macro's that tie into AD Attribute names becasue I can't just pull any readable attribute by name - just have to figure out if you can add more attributes to a custom macro, never-the-less, you nailed it. Check out my quick demo via a `Disclaimer Text` box:

%%Firstname%% %%Lastname%% <br>

%%department%% <br>

Telephone: %%Phone%% <br>

%%Company%% <br>

%%Street%% <br>

%%City%%, %%State%%

</body>

</html>

TNX again -

Has anybody been able to figure out how to insert the email address from AD. Thanks

Thanks for the post, this is interesting stuff, but i couldn't get past a couple of " limitations" .

1. It appends to the end of the email only, not at the end of the newest comments.

2. It repeats over and over again with each reply.

Any thoughts or suggestions on getting past those issues? working the way it does, I don't find this to be all that slick of a feature, except for when the message is first sent...

The easy way to do (2) is to put an exception in that does not append the signature/disclaimer/message (whatever) that says " if this (blah) text appears in the message body, don't put the text in again" .

I can't think of a way to put your message in at the bottom of the reply (for example) rather than at the bottom of the message itself.

I want to add a transport rule signature for certain users but I want it to function as if it were set in a client. Is there a way to do this without appending the signature at the end of the entire message chain?

@Brian

What do you say there is no way to do that? How about using the 3-rd party app suggested above? Will it do this? I mean I need personalized signatures for all users. Eg. I create one template for the entire company, with placeholders. Then no matter who sends a message, it will use only one template but replace placeholders with active directory data. Is this possible then?

cheers

Hi Murdock,

Lance wanted to know if he could do this without the disclaimer being put at the very bottom of the message every time. Picture how Outlook doesit, it puts it at the top of your reply underneath the new text you're adding. With that particular requirement in mind, no it cannot do that.

For what you asked, yes you can use one template that pulls data from AD for all users. The caveat is it'll be placed at the bottom of the message, underneath any quoted data.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for clarifying. As far as Lance is concerned, I tested this app from codetwo and it works the way he needed. It can either stamp disclaimer at the very bottom of the message or just below your newest reply. you can set up the program to work that way - i think it can somehow recognize the header of the message you are replying to and insert your footer just above it - which (simultaneously) is just below your new message :)

cheers!
