    Hi!!

    I dont know if I am posting this in right or wrong place. I would like to know that I am having nearly about 25 domains hosted on my cpanel. Now 1 of my customer asked me that if he can put the disclaimer in all of his outgoing mails for his domain only. He is using Microsoft Outlook as an email client. He doesn't want to put signatures as the users of outlook may delete it by mistake. Can any1 suggest me if its possible or not ?

    With Rgrds

    thanks for the link. i just have one more question - after editing mailscanner.conf, now where do i add the outgoing disclaimer text for that domain, so that all outgoing mails of that domain carry the disclaimer.

    thanks

    That's controlled by the MailScanner.conf settings:

    Inline HTML Signature = %report-dir%/inline.sig.html
    Inline Text Signature = %report-dir%/inline.sig.txt

    Hi Chirpy,

    I have your mailscanner installed and now have a client looking to do this too. Is it possible to make it look in a directory in the home directory for the sig.txt file??? instead of 1 global place, obviously different clients will have different disclaimers etc....

    Cheers.

    Possibly. The main issue is file permissions. What you can do is set those in MailScanner.conf to be a ruleset of config files and have each domain setup as:

    From: *@domain.com /home/username/mail/inline.sig.txt

    You need to ensure that those files are readable by mailnull:mail, which should be the case already for the files there.

    HI Chirpy,

    Please excuse my ignorance, but i dont understand what you mean....

    Ive changed my mailsanner.conf to

    Sign Clean Messages = /usr/mailscanner/etc/rules/signature.rules


    In the signature.rules file, are you saying i put

    From: *@domain.com /home/username/mail/inline.sig.txt

    ????

    Do i need to change anything anywhere else?


    Cheers....

    That should be it - I've not tried it out myself. You'd then have to restart MailScanner after making the change to MailScanner.conf. What I'm not sure on is whether MailScanner would need to be reloaded to effect any changes to those actual signature files, which it possibly may do. If so, that could cause difficulties with the idea.
