Having confirmed these details, you are directed back to Exclaimer's setup wizard, where you'll see confirmation you that you have successfully granted permission for Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365 to read your Azure/Office 365 directory data:

- To synchronize these signatures to users' computers, our Cloud Signature Update Agent must be downloaded on each client machine.
Deploying the signature update agent to users' computers
To synchronize signatures to Microsoft Outlook, Exclaimer's Cloud Signature Update Agent must be deployed to each user's computer. The agent runs in the background and synchronizes signatures at regular intervals.
There are two ways that you can deploy the Signature Update Agent to client computers:
Unless you have a specific need to deploy via GPO, we recommend that URL deployment is used - this is the simplest method, and ensures that the agent is always up to date.
