Surely it shouldn't be too hard to look at jules code and add a second _signature_ type tag in? Just need to read the other sig in.

hi jules,

thanks for "_SIGNATURE_" token
i did try this earlier, it works but then i will not be able to put any disclaimer on the bottom of the msg.
that's why need another signature for mailscanner to append on top of the msg

for quick picture,

the first inline.sig will be placed on top of msg i.e:

Company LLC
12str Ndo
Tel +xxs               Fax +sxxx

Ref.No: $d
Date: $datenumber (that's why i asked if this variables can be add in inline sig, can you give me a hint on where in MS conf to modify ?)

the second inline.sig will be placed on the bottom of msg:

Company Disclaimer
This e-mail and any attachments are believed to be free from viruses but it is your responsibility to carry out all necessary virus checks. We Company LLC accepts no liability for any damage caused by any virus that might become available during internet transmission of this e-mail.

any guidance or hint please
or else can just shoot me with simple "NO, MS IS NOT THE RIGHT ONE TO DO THIS JOB"

been googling out and edditing some pm file in lib directory, but
cudn't manage to get it work yet..

is it possible ? appreciate an ideas

You can get the signature added at the top of the file by putting the token "_SIGNATURE_" at the top of each message.
You can't use date variables currently, but there's nothing to stop a cron job on your MailScanner server changing the signature file every few minutes :-)
