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
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);
