I want to strip attachments from inbound mail from exchange and put them in a directory on a file server.

I am using a program called attachments processor from mapilabs presently. It provides all the functionality I want it removes incoming faxes (pdfs via email) from and puts them in a shared directory on the file server.

I want to perform this same function but server side. Meaning that my computer need not be on to process the attachments.

Server is 2008 x64 with Exchange 2007.

    Sounds like something I would set up in Sharepoint and not Exchange.  Route the message to SharePoint, strip the attachment, and store it in a file library.

    Then you will have to write (or have someone do it for you) an Exchange transport DLL to do it for you.

    You might be able to do some magic with powershell if you are a scripter.  Process all messages, grab the attachments, save to folder, then delete the message.

    I did some searches and could not find an Exchange 2007 solution.  There are Outlook and Exchange 2003 event syncs out there.
