Stripping attachments automatically

By lmoore ·
How can you have Exchange Server 5.5 automatically strip an attachment from an incoming e-mail and send that attachments to a particular directory?
Example would be receiving an e-mail from customer with an order attached. How would you have the system automatically strip off that attachment and send it to a folder called "Orders"?

Thanks for your help.

There isn't a simple way to do this. You can create an Event Script that can accomplish this. In reference to the folderm are you referring to an Outlook folder or an actual disk folder. If it is an Outlook folder, you can resort to the Rules Wizardin the Outlook client to autoforward based on characteristics of the message. Unfortunately all the Outlook client rules will pretty much forward the entire message. If youu want to save only the attachment, you are definitely going to have to restort to custom scripting.
Hope this helps

Check out www.ornic.com. They have a program called EXLife (With a demo you can try) It's a client-side rule tool that can strip out attachments and more. Costs around $30 USD. They'll also have a server side version soon.

HTH,
