ESA is an awarded application for centralized creation and management of email signatures. With the help of the central management of the signatures, companies can assure that the signature is corresponding to the legal demands for all employees and that all information is given. By using ESA companies can save time and costs given through imminent legal warnings in case the email signature is incomplete.
The application communicates with the existing IT systems and thereby is updated in case the data of an employee changes.
With ESA it is not only possible to keep your employees’ data updated at all times, but it is also possible to implement the Corporate Identity into the signature. ESA automatically adopts the formatting of the text and embeds logos and banners into the signature.
In order to create your own ESA signature you can use the online tool for ESA signature creation. Go to Signature Tool →

Microsoft Active Directory or Outlook address book
ESA is using Active Directory in order to determine user-specific attributes like first name, last name, Street, etc. The data of the ESA user is latched in the user part of the local registry. If Active Directory is not available, actualized information from the user account will not be transferred to the signature but the data saved in the local registry will be used. New with version 6: If Active Directory is not available, the Outlook Address book can be used as an alternative to access the user-related data.
Microsoft Exchange or Exchange in the Cloud
Microsoft Exchange Public Folder are being used for the saving of the signature templates. If you are using Exchange in the Cloud, you will not have access to public folders. In this case you are using a resource mailbox for the saving of the data required by ESA.
Microsoft .NET Framework
ESA is based on Microsoft .NET Framework. Microsoft .NET Framework has to be installed locally in order to use ESA.
