Server based code to save Outlook attachments

On certain Exchange email accounts, we need to be able to copy off attachments on incoming messages and store these on a shared network folder, moving the emails to a \processed folder in the inbox.

This needs to happen on the server, not by Outlook rules.

Can anyone advise as to what tools to use/where to start?

Hi, PetEdge.

I recommend looking into a 3rd-party tool rather than trying to develop your own solution.  MAPI Labs (http://www.mapilab.com/exchange/rules/?ga) has a tool called Rules for Exchange.  If you decide to develop your own solution, then you'll need to write an event-sink for Exchange.  Event-sinks are something like a macro for Outlook, only at the server.  However, because they run at the server they are more difficult to write and debug.  A poorly written or buggy event-sink can bring the entire server down.  I don't recommend writing one unless you're an expert at it.
