Office 365 Disclaimers

Title, Legal Disclaimer

This is a 2 part tip of the day.  Part one is how to add Disclaimers to every outgoing email in Office 365.  Part two is how to configure that disclaimer so that you only include one of them in any email thread.  If you're currently forcing your users to add disclaimers to their signature line, or don’t use them at all, you might be better off to add them at a company level rather than user level.  Now I won't think about how legally useful these disclaimers are, I just know Lawyers started them.  Read on for the details.
