    Hi Hao Nguyen,

    I found you from website “Installing MDaemon Mail Server 12.56”.
    Can I ask some quesiton for MDaemon, thank you.

    1) Can we have a corporate signature file of each email (except send to local domain)? eg.local domain to [email protected] will NOT get this signature file.
    2) How can we set this rule in “Content Filter” on MDaemon?
    How can check each sender/ recipient/cc/ bcc (because one email may contain lots receipients) ?

    Thank you for your help !

    B. regards,
