Exchange Server


Exchange Server’s 2013 and 2016 further developments for hub transport disclaimers?

In both Exchange 2013 and 2016 Microsoft followed the path already taken, and extended the possibilities of managing messages in Hub Transport by introducing support for data loss prevention, and adding a new set of conditions and actions for transport rules; however there was no major, or even a lesser improvement introduced in terms of the apply disclaimer feature. The only distinction worth noticing is of the way how the disclaimer text window is triggered. Now, in Exchange 2013 and 2016, it is done through EAC, which is much easier and more intuitive, unlike it was in Exchange 2010 using EMC.
One may ask if Microsoft clearly states that it is as far it will go in terms of the disclaimer editing feature and its further development. At this point the component is still on the level of Exchange 2010, and consequently both Exchange 2013 and 2016 versions have the same limitations as their predecessor release in composing and applying disclaimers.
The constant limitations of Exchange family:
  • No HTML editor;
  • No RTF format support;
  • No side banners and side disclaimers option;
  • No disclaimer positioning options (e.g. disclaimer text after the most recent reply);
  • No template and picture library;
  • No time rules;
  • Users don’t see the disclaimers in Sent Items.
