Setting up the sent items update feature

Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365 includes a feature called Sent Items Update. When this feature is enabled, any signatures applied will be shown when users check messages in their Sent Items folder - meaning that users can see messages exactly as they would be displayed to recipients.

This article details preparation required to activate this feature, and then how to enable it in Exclaimer Cloud Signatures for Office 365 settings.


First, the Sent Items Update feature must be activated for your subscription. This is done by the Exclaimer Sales team - please raise a request with your sales contact.

Once this is done, you will see a banner message at the top of the page when you access Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365:
