Connected IP Address

Post by Kelden » 2021-05-12 00:15

I try to improve this script for signatures

For this, I need to know the email address the client connects from. ... ect_client

The Client object only has the IPAddress variable which says:
The TCP/IP address the client is connected to.

That would mean, it's the server address. I don't know why this would be useful, but
I need the client source IP address. How can I get this?

The reason is, I only want to add a signature if the client is our webmail system.
The normal desktop clients all have a signature configured.

Why would it mean that?
(It may at times but that is very rare and dependent on your specific setup)

Have you checked your SMTP logs?
Is connecting IP address recorded there? If so that is the IP that is reported
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

Move the code from Sub OnAcceptMessage to a function. Then, in Sub OnAcceptMessage:

if oClient.IPAddress = webmail iP address then
if oMessage.FromAddress contains local domains then
call functionaddsignature
end if
end if
