Abstract

This is a utility to Append Disclaimers to proprietary-formatted and MIME-formatted e-mails. It runs at the boundary messaging gateway and processes all e-mails. Given that this is for the appending of e-mails destined to people outside of the organization, it is meant to process outbound e-mails only. It is composed of a Hook, which holds the e-mails in the outbound mail queue. It is composed of the Disclaimer agent, which appends the disclaimer to e-mails, no matter their format. Finally, the solution also offers an agent accellerator, which speeds up the recurring execution of the disclaimer agent.
