A policy is an administrator set rule that affects the flow of email. In the case of a stationery policy, it determines if and when to apply stationery to a message. For example, an policy can be set to apply a stationery layout to all internal domain users when sending outbound email. When one of these users sends an email, Mimecast will apply the stationery before delivering the email to the intended recipient.


The policy allows for centralized, granular control of the application of a stationery layout to a message, and is based on specific groups of users. In this way, complete control is achieved in terms of which stationery layout is applied to which user, without allowing the user to affect the content of the stationery layout itself.
