How to add a messgae to the end of all outgoing messages


Hi everyone,

I'm relatively new to this. I have a linux mail server (Sendmail/Dovecote).

I would like to add some message(a legal disclaimer) at the end of all outgoing mails e.g "This message is priviledged and intended solely for the recepient ..........."

At which point is this done, do I need to write a special script to do this?

Cheers.

Just add it as your signature.

It depends on what kind of email client you're using. For clients like mutt, mailx, and I think pine (it's been a while), you'd put your signature in a file called .signature in your home directory. For apps like Thunderbird and such, you should be able to do this via however you set up your account's preferences.

If you want to tag the same disclaimer-type-stuff regardless of user, you need to install something like MIME Defanger on your server. It's not a straightforward install for a newbie though. You'll need to add a number of PERL modules, compile and install the MIMEdefang software, then add it into the sendmail configuration as a milter.

Which distribution are you using?
