Change the message format

Add logo/disclaimer and
user fields. (result
; the user only typed "message
from me to you"... OutlookDisclaimer
did the rest)
(*) Depending on the Disclaimer for Outlook®
version it is possible to prevent the sending of a message if no central
ini file can be found, or to switch to a local ini-file if the central
location is not available.
(**) If you use an Exchange
server or active directory, some of the personal data which is stored in
the directory (like your Job title) can be used to be inserted into the
(***) If you send e-mail
in rtf or plain text format, the message will be converted to a fixed
font type. If html is the format already then no conversion takes place.

version / Enterprise version Tight
Will always use the central settings file and logo. If no
settings-file can be found then the email is simply not send. If the error is corrected the mail can be send
after opening it from the drafts folder.
version / Enterprise version Weak
Will try to use the central settings file and logo. If
no central settings-file can be found then it will try to use a local
ini-file. Users can adjust this file which gives you less control over
what is send by users.
Version vs. Enterprise version
corporations where all users connect to the same server, the corporate version
can be used.
The price is 450 euros. This version uses a hard coded UNC path
(\\ServerName\FolderShare) to find the central configuration.
For large enterprises with multiple locations we can offer the Enterprise
verison which is coded with a Drive letter. (ie y:) to look for the central
configuration. The advantage of that is that it can be used everywhere in the
enterprise and branch offices and depending on the login script, the drive
letter points to a specific shared folder.
The enterprise verion is 1800 euros.
version (free, no support!)
Will always use an ini-file on the local hard-disk of the pc.
[Run set-up. Change Logo.gif in

personal version shows a small url linking to the OpusFlow website at
the bottom of the disclaimer.
