Outlook 2007 - How to create a rule to receive only headers

I need to create a rule on Outlook 2007 that:

for all the emails sent to an ALIAS (where I am subscribed), I want to receive only the headers

OR

for all the emails sent to an ALIAS (where I am subscribed), I want to receive only the name of the attachment and the text, but not the attachment

Hi, ping_it.

From an Outlook perspective this isn't possible.  Rules only work once the item has been received.  There's no such thing as a rule to control what gets downloaded from the mail server.  You can control whether the full message or just the header gets downloaded in connection settings, but whatever you set will apply to all messages not just those sent toa certain alias.

maybe there is this possibility already on the Exchange server?

I'm not enough of an Exchange expert to be able to answer that question.  I don't think there is, but I could be wrong.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

you are looking at writing a specific smtp transport sink to strip the body of the email out before forwarding it on to your mailbox

Sorry, I have to object.  The fact that the answer wasn't what the author was hoping for doesn't warrant deleting the question.  My answer was correct.  I'm sorry it wasn't what the author wanted, but it is a correct answer.  abhaigh deserves credit for pointing out that a transport sink might be a solution.  I believe that abhaigh and I deserve credit and a split of the points.
