TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I strongly advise that you do nothing to edit the text that your boss adds
to outgoing messages. Your boss (or your boss's lawyer) wants it there,
right? Bear in mind that you've already identified your company in your
post, which is publicly accessible on the Web.
