Strip attachments on server and store in file folder (NOT a PF)

Exchange server 2003 needs to strip out all attachments on incoming messages and store these on a shared folder, replacing the attachment in the message with a link to the attachment.

This needs to happen on the server, not by Outlook rules.

Unless I'm overlooking a really obscure setting in Exchange, this would have to be done by third party software.

Hi bartsmit,

This will have to be 3rd party - you can stop looking in exchange :)

Slipstick have a heap of link for this (scroll down to administrator tools)


In that list, I have heard of this being used successfully (it is the only one that rings a bell for me)


Hope that helps,
