Customized Exchange or Office 365 Disclaimers

To me, disclaimers in Exchange are fun because we can use attributes from Active Directory to customize what is created. Below is an example of one of the disclaimers I have running in both Exchange 2013 and Office 365 via transport rules.

In this example of the disclaimer via HMTL text, I use the following user AD attributes to individualize the content. Keep in mind that each AD attribute that is used must be prepended and appended by two (2) percentage signs (%%).

  • FisrtName
  • LastName
  • Title
  • Department
  • Company
  • Email
  • PhoneNumber
  • CustomAttribute1-15; Added URL to the field in “CustomAttribute10” to reference company web page.

NOTE: The “CustomerAttribute1-15” attribute fields in the Exchange Management Console (Exchange 2007/2010) directly correlate to the “extensionAttribute1-15” attribute fields in the AD user objects.
