Message Footer

System administrators can configure server-wide message footers that SmarterMail will append on all incoming and outgoing messages. Although similar to signatures, message footers are typically used to convey disclaimers or provide additional information. For example, a system administrator may want every message to include a notice that the message was scanned for viruses or the text "Sent by SmarterMail."

To access the message footer options, click the Settings icon, expand the Advanced Settings folder in the navigation pane and click on Message Footer. The message footer settings will load in the content pane and the following tabs will be available:


Use this tab to specify the following settings:

  • Enable footer for all messages - Select this option to turn on the message footer for all incoming and outgoing messages.
  • Apply to mailing lists - Select this option to append the message footer to mailinglist messages. Note: Mailing lists have their own configurable footers, so enabling this option will append a second footer at the end of each message. Because this may be confusing for mailing list moderators and recipients, most administrators will choose to keep this option disabled.
  • Enable domains to override footer settings - Select this option to allow domain administrators to configure their own message footer for the domain.


Use this tab to create the message footer text. Admins can use the HTML-based editor to create footers that seamlessly fit into any email message. Note: The message footer does not support the use of variables.
