Removing ads or disclaimers from incoming emails

Some ISPs, like AOL and Hotmail, often add advertisements to the bottom of messages.

Also, some employers add "disclaimers" to every outgoing email.

To clean up the messages your subscribers receive, we can snip these ads and disclaimers before they reach your subscribers.

Example:  Before

Before

Example:  After

After

Although we try our best to remove ads from messages, it is possible such messages may still sneak through our filters. While we can't guarantee 100% of such ads being removed, most should be.
