How to upgrade from 'classic' v7.x/v8.x/v9.x/v10.x to current v. Xink (estimate 2 hours)

Organizations will have a smooth transition from eMailSignature "classic" to Xink. 

  • For instance, it's possible to run Xink and "classic" concurrently.

In general, the switch to Xink is a move toward a so-called "Email Signature Platform".
For instance, the Xink platform provides things like role-based access control capability.

Moving forward, eMailSignature is re-branded as Xink (as we as company re-branded back in 2014)

You no longer have to maintain everything on premises. Many clients have no installation on servers when upgrading to latest version.

  • The eMailSignature management console is replaced by the Xink browser-based administration login.
  • Your SQL database is NOT replaced - It's used when you want to manage OWA/Mobile email signature with Exchange Server on premises. 
  • Sign.exe is replaced by the Xink client app which updates Outlook (Win/Mac) and Apple Mail (Mac) during office hours (not only during domain logon). 
  • The license key is replaced by your company login (you can assign login to the responsible department using role-based access control).

With current eMailSignature maintenance subscription, you are licensed to upgrade at no extra cost
