How do I define a signature for Exclaimer Cloud deployment?

If your subscription is configured with Outlook Client for Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365, you can create a signature and then define signature rules to determine if/how it is deployed:

  • Exclaimer Cloud deployment. Users compose and send messages from any client/browser/device, without signatures. The message is then routed to our Cloud service, where the first applicable signature is applied. 


  • Outlook client deployment. Users synchronize signatures from Exclaimer Cloud to Microsoft Outlook, so their signature is displayed when they compose messages from their Outlook client. The message is then routed to Exclaimer Cloud, where text matching ensures that a duplicate signature is not applied.

     internal recipients   Where applicable, add this signature only to messages sent to internal recipients. 
     external recipients   Where applicable, add this signature only to messages sent to external recipients.
    Except where the message contains... 
     Text field   Use the text field provided to enter a word or phrase that should trigger an exception, so this signature is NOT applied. For example, you could use this option to a ensure that the signature only appears once in an email thread.
