The commerical version of sendmail has this built in - see
http://www.sendmail.com . The open source version can surely be
made to do it but it is complicated to do correctly in the presence
of MIME attachments. There is a package (MIMEDefang) that seems to do
this. There is also excellent advice at
http://www.goldmark.org/jeff/stupid-disclaimers/ .

"How do I add a footer/signature to all (outgoing) e-mails?"

Checking signed messaged (GPG/PGP) might have problems with adding
something to the body of an email. I'd carefully test this out.

Good luck

Dear Daniel,
First of all Very thanks for your effort and
advise over the query I asked . I have installed the mime-defang
package in my mail server with sendmail. Then How should I proceed to
add footer using mimedefang? The site you mentioned is not very clear
for this purpose . What needs to be done next ? Is there anything to
change or add in the sendmail.mc file or Is there anything to do with
mimedefang ? I have no clue about it . Kindly give me some details
clearly if you done it before .
Expecting your reply soon .

A search for "disclaimer" or "footer" at
http://lists.roaringpenguin.com/mailman/listinfo/mimedefang shows that
indeed MimeDefang is not a canned solution to the problem, but a tool
that might be part of a solution if combined with some additional Perl
programming. This is not something I have done, so I don't think I can
provide any real help. You are perhaps reduced to a commercial solution
or you could make an attempt and follow up on that mailing list, which
seems quite active. I believe Roaring Penguin sells a canned solution
as do others. It is still a bad idea to do this at the MTA. Why not add
the footer in the MUA? Won't that satisfy PHB?
