Using Exclaimer vs Office 365 [Comparison]
Brought to you by Exclaimer
There are many pain points that IT administrators deal with when it comes to managing Office 365 (now Microsoft 365) signatures.
Office 365 signature updates are time consuming and boring.
HTML email signature designs have to be manually added into the Office 365 disclaimer editor.
Blank spaces can appear in contact information depending on the Active Directory data used.
No way to place Office 365 signatures under replies or create separate reply signatures.
Getting users to use uniform email signature templates on outgoing messages is next to impossible.
Have to create lots of Transport Rules for different departmental signatures.
HTML email signatures on mobile devices and Macs aren’t possible.
Email signature designs can’t be tested before they are deployed to users.
Images can’t be embedded directly into signatures - have to be hosted elsewhere.
Let’s compare managing email signatures just using Office 365 Transport Rules and how it differs from Exclaimer.
