Program and/or rule to save an attachment from a designated email address that works with exchange

I currently have an outlook add in that monitors my incoming email. It then saves attachments from a designated sender.  I have another program that monitors that folder and does some processing on the file.

I would like to have this tied to Exchange server directly.  I'm the network admin, so I have full permissions to do what i need to do.  I also write software so I'm open to any tecnical combination.  SO how can I monitor exchange for a designated account(s) email, save the attachment and fire off an application.  The idea is to not have to have my workstation running.  I want this to run server side, so even a windows service would work for me.

Hi, BizzukaInc.

You want an event-sink.  Event-sinks are like macros for Exchange.  The big difference between them is that a buggy event-sink could bring the entire Exchange server down.  I believe the Exchange SDK has event-sink documentation.  

If you want a third-party solution, then have a look at (  They maintain a good list of 3rd-party add-ins and tools.  I know there are tools that run rules at the Exchange server, I just don't know if they'll do exactly what you want and I don't know what they cost.
