Lotus Domino/Notes Mail Agent

I need an agent that will run in a MailIn dB and delete any message that does not contain an .xls file. If that is not possilbe an agent that would delete any message that does not contain an attachment might suffice.
Running Domino and Notes 7.0.2

Thanks

Sure, no problem.  Place this code in the Initialize event of a LotusScript agent that is set to run after new mail has arrived.

      Dim sess As New NotesSession()
      Dim db As NotesDatabase
      Dim dc As NotesDocumentCollection
      Dim doc As NotesDocument
      Dim docNext As NotesDocument
      Dim arrFileNames As Variant
      Dim strExtension As String
      Dim bDelete As Boolean
      
      Set db = sess.CurrentDatabase
      Set dc = db.UnprocessedDocuments
      If (dc.Count = 0) Then Exit Sub
      
      Set doc = dc.GetFirstDocument()
      Do While (Not doc Is Nothing)
            
            Set docNext = dc.GetNextDocument(doc)
            
            bDelete = True
            arrFileNames = Evaluate("@AttachmentNames", doc)
            If (Not Isempty(arrFileNames)) Then
                  Forall fileName In arrFileNames
                        If (Instr(fileName, ".") <> 0) Then
                              strExtension = Strrightback(fileName, ".")
                              If (Lcase(strExtension) = "xls") Then
                                    bDelete = False
                                    Exit Forall
                              End If
                        End If
                  End Forall
            End If
            If (bDelete) Then Call doc.Remove(True)
            
            Set doc = docNext
      Loop

Wouldn't the same be possible with a mail rule?

Can't use Mail Rule, nothing to specify attachment.

Is that so? Yes, most likely, I must say I didn't check. I'd expected an @AttachmentNames function to be absolutely valid in that context.
