Configuring for server-side signatures
For server-side signatures, it is important to update the Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record for each domain from which you send emails.
If you don't do this, there is a risk that any messages that are routed from Exclaimer Cloud back to your email service can be marked as spam by recipients. For more information, see how you can update the Sender Policy Framework (SPF)?
To configure for server-side signatures:
- Click START SETUP.
NOTE: If you don't want to configure server-side signatures, click Skip setup.
Select Send all email to Exclaimer to send all your company emails to Exclaimer Cloud to process.
However, you can specify the name of a group, in which case only emails sent from users in the specified group will be sent to Exclaimer Cloud for processing.
- In Test Group Name, enter the name of the (mail-enabled) group whose user emails need to be processed by Exclaimer Cloud.
- The Autocomplete feature will complete the group name for you (from the list of all groups selected during the AD sync); if required, you can edit it.
- If you specify a group name that does not already exist in your Microsoft 365 tenancy, the group will be automatically created for you as a mail-enabled security group. However, you will need to add members to this group on Microsoft 365 once the setup of Exclaimer Cloud is complete.
Please select only mail-enabled security groups if you want to select an existing group.
