Signature not being applied when sending via Outlook
Question asked by Jason Mehmet - 9/29/2014 at 3:44 AM
I've created a default signature which works exactly as required when I create e-mail from the web-based interface.
When I send an e-mail from the same account via Outlook the signature is not added.
I had thought that this signature feature simply created a server-side signature that was applied to all out-bound e-mails, is this not the case? Is there a way to apply this signature to all out-bound e-mails so as to avoid creating individual signatures within Outlook for all users?
Many Thanks

Hello Jason,
Thanks for the inquiry. You are correct. The Signatures that are created within SmarterMail will only appear / apply for the web interface emails. Outlook and other email clients have their own signature fields and configurations. At this time there is not a way to apply the signatures to the emails externally.

How can you say "You are correct"? Did you even read his question? His statement about how he thought Smartermail worked was in fact not correct at all.

Is this ever going to be implemented - I have a client comparing Smartermail to Exchange.

This is possible in exchange.

He wants to keep his signature the same on all devices iPhone, iPad, Android, PC etc...

This post was many years ago now and I'm taking the liberty of sharing my comments here as well.

SmarterMail includes the feature to manage the domain wide or even the global signature settings and to let a user add his own signatures. This functionality suggests that the signature management works across applications and is attached after the message is sent.

However, this is not the case. The signature is only used when the webmail is used. In the context of SmarterMail with the functionality of EAS, EWS, etc., it only seems to make sense here that signatures are also automatically appended when sending with applications like Outlook or others.

So I would welcome it very much if this function would be implemented accordingly. Variables can be used in the signature management that cannot be used so easily by Outlook, eM, etc..

Many thanks

Bump for consideration if not already available in the new Beta.

This would be incredibly useful for all our clients, as they all use Outlook and make frequent changes to their signatures.

I imagine an implementation like CodeTwo here. Personally, I am not concerned with the domain signature being displayed in an e-mail client such as Outlook. It is absolutely obvious that this is not technically possible.

However, when the message is sent by the MTA, it should definitely be possible for the signature to be attached. The mail is then displayed in the outbox including the signature. This is how CodeTwo does it. The signature is attached after sending.

Thanks and greetings
