Description

We are back with another exciting feature in the new UI: the Signature Rules Tester.

The Signature Rules Tester is an interactive tool to help you examine the process of sending an email from a defined user (sender) to a defined recipient and see how and why a signature is applied. You can also preview the email with the signatures applied. 

For this release, you will still need to access the following from the old UI:

  • Configuration Settings
  • Sign out option 
  • Signature/folder actions, which include Delete, Move and Export 
  • Although the server-side and client-side options are visible in the new UI, you will not be prompted to configure these services, if you have not already done so (you will need to configure them in the old UI).  

We look forward to hearing your feedback, both on the experience of the new UI and this online guide.

Your feedback is valuable to help us enhance your user experience and enable you to quickly and easily create, edit and manage your email signatures. Please let us know what you think both on the experience of the new UI and this online guide - again, thank you in advance!

Description

The following new enhancement is included in this release:

Exclaimer now uses the latest generation of the Microsoft Authentication Library (MSAL) to carry out authentication. Previously, Exclaimer used Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL).

By using the latest generation of MSAL, Exclaimer has access to the latest bug fixes and improvements from Microsoft and improved capabilities with the latest security offerings from Microsoft and other third parties.

NOTE:
Microsoft Authentication Library (MSAL) enables developers to acquire tokens from the Microsoft identity platform endpoint in order to authenticate users and access secured web APIs. It can be used to provide secure access to Microsoft Graph, other Microsoft APIs, third-party web APIs, or your own web API. MSAL supports many different application architectures and platforms including .NET, JavaScript, Java, Python, Android, and iOS.

- If you have installed the Cloud Signature Update Agent for Windows (not via GPO) then you can also install the MSI directly onto your computer.

 

NOTE:
