Exch 2007 - Adding Disclaimer Text Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys

    if I want to set a disclaimer based on a users UPN, is it simply the case of creating transport rules then modifying the "when the from address contains" field and inputing the UPN's (@upn.com)

    i.e user_a@upn.com -- gets a disclaimer from upn.com

    user_b@upn1.com -- gets a disclaimer from upn1.com

    I did a quick test and it did not work

    any gotchers

    James

    remember this is Exch 2007

  • Hi,

    it should work. Have you installed the actual patches/Service Packs?

  • thanks peddy

    I will check, tbh I just did a quick test -- it's an enertprise environment, so maybe the setting needed to propogate to the other Hub servers

    was an issue with transport rule fixed in an SP then?

  • Hi,

    OK, this might explain the delay. Is it possible that you give us some more details of your infrastructure?

    Active Directory Site Configuration (replication settings) and Exchane configuration accordingly the the AD Site configuration.

  • Hi James,

    after reading this threat again I noticed that you want to create a transport rule based on the UPN and you give us an example userr_a@upn.com. Please rember that this is a UPN and not an email address so you are not able to compare this value with the from field value in an email. It is possible that the two information are identical but in enterprise environments normally it is not identical.

    So you have to hut the email address in the transport rule "When the from address contains" and not the UPN of an useraccount.

  • yep, thanks peddy

    the logic was, users accounts where being udated with a UPN, which in turn was driving an EAP -- then discalimer appended as required to the @upn.com

    and as noted works without the @

    it was for a rollout of Office365

    thanks to all
