You want to temporarily disable or permanently stop email from your organization routing to Exclaimer to have server-side signatures applied. You may wish to do this if you are troubleshooting a mail flow issue, no longer wish to use server-side signatures or have cancelled your Exclaimer subscription.
- If you wish to enable the server-side again, you will need to go through the configuration process again.
- Emails that are sent will no longer be passed over to the Exclaimer Azure Servers – this will prevent a signature from being added to the emails sent.
