In Exchange it’s quite easy to create this banner, it’s a simple exchange rule.

<table style="height: 10px; width: 100%; border-collapse: collapse; border-style: dotted;" border="1">
<tr style="height: 10px;">
<td style="width: 100%; height: 10px;">
<h4><strong><span style="background-color: #ffff00;"><span style="color: #ff0000;">WARNUNG</span>: diese Mail wurde von extern zugestellt. Bitte nicht auf Links klicken oder Anh&auml;nge &ouml;ffnen, wenn Sie den Absender nicht kennen!</span></strong></h4>
