Exclaimer is an independent software vendor and cloud service provider based in Farnborough, Hampshire, UK. The company also has offices in the Netherlands, United States, Germany and Australia. It develops, sells and provides support for a suite of email utilities and cloud computing technologies designed for adding disclaimers, branding, personalised email signatures, email archiving, anti-spam, retention-policy enforcement, auto replies and regulatory compliance for corporate email.

Its products are designed to work with Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Outlook, Office 365 and G Suite to give IT departments greater control over their entire email system(s) without altering the individual user experience. It also offers a bespoke email signature design service and has been a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner since 2007. It became a Google Cloud Partner in 2018.

Exclaimer successfully achieved the ISO 27001:2013 Certification for Information Security Management in February 2016 from Alcumus ISOQAR and the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).[1] This is specifically for the development and supply of a cloud hosted email signature management system. It was also awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise in April 2016 for International Trade,[2] the highest official UK award a British business can achieve. The company then became an official Crown Commercial Service Supplier to the UK public sector in August 2016.[3].


The company was founded in 2001 and was the first company to create a bespoke email signature solution for Microsoft Exchange Server. Since then, Exclaimer has become firmly established as the major supplier of email signature software/services to more than 75 million users worldwide including organizations in the legal, financial, healthcare, local and central government, manufacturing and media industries. It has also written an official For Dummies guide on Email Signatures.

On 6 December 2016, Livingbridge invested £23 million in Exclaimer.[4] The investment was advised by PricewaterhouseCoopers and was the last primary investment from Livingbridge 5, the firm's £360m fund raised in 2012.
