yes, and it's quite easy.

appologies if any table/view names are wrong, am doing this off the top of my head.

create a page in asp.net to grab the contents of the email from the database (either direct or using the crmservice). the page will accept the guid of the email in the querystring.

display the contents of the email on the page.

at the top of the page, have a seperate area (table, div, whatever you prefer) to show the attachments.
get the name and id for each attachment in the mimeattachment view associated to the id of the email.

if you look on an existing attachment screen, you will find the url needed to download an attachment. Use that and replace the id and name with your id and name from above.


customize the email list screen, add an iframe and a function to load the selected item into it. add a handler to the lists onselect event to reload the iframe with the new id.

have a look at some of the samples at http://www.stunnware.com/crm2

My sample should look pretty much the same as the post.
