All Email Attachments Sent to Networked Folder

Posted on 2008-11-04

I have incoming .tif files to 1 mailbox - incoming faxes from Bell Canada's Single Number Reach.

I want them all of the attachments to be saved as is (.tif files) into a shared network folder like -\\server\IncomingFaxes\

Naming of the file is not an issue, I just need it to be in this folder.

I would prefer to do this on the server side so I don't need to leave a Outlook client running processing all the incoming messages.

    To the best of my knowledge what you are trying to achieve looks practically impossible, however if you are ready to shell some cash - MSFT might be a good option to start off with.

    This is using Exchange 2007 to save incoming email attachments into a network folder.
    Using any method on the server, without having to buy a 3rd party app.

    It "should" be possible to send all messages to a public folder - that also copies the file to a network folder.

    BUT it might require an email client to be running to process it...

    The craptastic thing is MS Fax does the job, but it only processes incoming calls and not emails.
