The Xink Exchange Connector is a connectivity tool that retrieves users and their email signatures from Xink, and adds them into a local SQL database in your domain. The purpose is to use these email signatures in your Exchange Server so that any users sending emails from mobile devices have the correctly branded email signature added to their message. It also allows OWA users to see the signature as they compose an email.
