The request is from senior management who are concerned that mail users can send out e-mail in which they have awarded themselves inappropriate job titles. Would it possible to make Courier append a standard signature (taken from a database) to outgoing e-mail, once users had authenticated themselves?
You could append a signature using a filter. You'd have to make sure that none of your users netblocks were listed as RELAYCLIENTs in smtpaccess, forcing them to use SMTP AUTH in order to relay mail.
Are you saying that you could not modify mails with filters if the mail is sent using SMTP AUTH?
However, even with all of that done, there's little or nothing stopping your users from sending email from somewhere else. You probably have too much senior management... they seem to be getting bored and worrying about non-existent threats.
Actually there is strict european legislation being enacted across the EU which is mandating that emails be boilerplated with full company legal name, legal structure and list of company principals, and failure to comply can mean 250K in fines and imprisionment. I'd say thats a very existent threat for any management to worry about.
Tell them that it's a waste of time and money, and that while you can append signatures, you can't force anyone to submit to using them.
I think that was teh point of the exercise, that doing it centrally you did force them to use it unless of course they leave the ranch in which case the company can't be repsonsible anyway.
Failing that would it be possible to examine outgoing e-mail and drop messages that didn't include the senders "approved" signature.
Sure. Slightly easier, but no less easily circumvented.
I would have thought this was harder given that it is next to impossible to pre-determine what constitutes a signature unless users follow the double dash and three line rules, which most don't..
