Hi Experts,
I am working on a document classification project.
I need to classify office documents and log documents classified as secret that is emailed out of the company.
I thought of changing the custom properties of documents to enable a keyword of some sort to be available to another process.
The challenge now comes with a system, add-on somewhere, AD of some other metod to scan the properties of outgoing email attachments and if a certain keyword is present, to write the incident to a log file.
Any ideas?
regards

Hi,

If i'm not remebering incorrectly, the function to search outgoing mail by keyword was available in Sql Server Report Pack for Microsoft Exchange. So my guess is this piece of functionality is already present in Exchange and You should be able to extend this to your application.

What I read seems promising. Points to 2000 however. Any ideas or links for something a bit more recent (modern)

An Exchange aware AV product can certainly scan the documents. Most AV software I deploy is now used for this kind of thing, because most virus infected emails are stopped by antispam software.

Yes, but do you know of any product that I can integrate to. The goal is that 'some' system must be able to read a specific custom property of the attachment of the email and if it matches a specific value, write an entry to a log file somewhere.
